This is a very early vintage Buffet Paris Super Dynaction model alto sax, serial number 5092. Though this alto shows a fair amount of lacquer wear, it is original and has never been relacquered. This alto ships in good pads, and will get a fresh adjustment from the Saxquest repair shop before going out.

 

While not engraved with the “Super Dynaction” name on the tube, this is clearly a SD based on keywork and design. It has the improved table keys, octave key shape, and Buffet stamp bell-to-body brace of the Super Dyna models. Physically, the horn is pretty straight, with only minor previous dent work here and there, and no serious past trauma. The original neck is also in solid shape. This horn was repadded not long ago, using firm leather pads and the original metal screw-in resonators. The action wasn't ideal when we received it, so it is currently in line for a fresh regulation in our shop, and will ship in perfect playing shape.

 

The vintage Buffet saxes, especially the Super Dynaction model, has long been known as “that other French model” and has played second fiddle to Selmer, but these are dynamic players for a lot less money. They have the typical French sound and color of tone, with an easy blowing nature that is overall less focused than a Selmer. Great little player that won't break the bank! Ships in its original case.
