Selmer S80 Series I Alto Saxophone – Includes Pro Overhaul
This is a Selmer Paris S80 “Series I” from the 1980's in original gold lacquer finish, serial number 324595.
The first series of the Super Action 80 is a perfect choice for the modern pro alto player. The Super Action 80 showcases a warm core sound with a precise balance from top to bottom.  In contrast to the more modern SII and SIII the S80 Series I is noticeably more open and free blowing from its core. But it is much more controlled and focused then the older Mark VI models. The great control and versatility of the SI make it an ideal instrument for the modern professional who spends time playing in a multitude of musical situations.  Projection and key ergonomics are also exceptional.
This alto shows off a pretty gold lacquer finish with modest cosmetic play wear. The body of the sax is physically about as clean as it gets. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in great shape and do not have history of  major past repair. The saxophone has had zero re-solders. Its outer bell flare is in perfect condition. You can see some small cosmetic blemishing to the finish just below the bell ring. This is most likely from spending a lot of time on a saxophone stand. The original neck is with the saxophone and is also in excellent condition. At some point it was very slightly pulled down. This will be professionally corrected while the saxophone is in our shop. 
The S80 alto came into our shop sitting on all of the original pads. These pads are well past their prime. As such the alto is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional overhaul The overhaul will include a complete dissemble, cleaning, key fitting and a thorough set-up for the regulation. Once complete the alto will be in perfect playing condition with all new pads, resonators, corks and felts. Ships with new protec case.
