Ships with a Fresh Saxquest Overhaul

Beautiful condition Selmer Paris Series III tenor saxophone, serial number 658014. This horn has been played but well cared for, and stands with over 98% original lacquer intact. It is currently in our repair shop in line for a fresh overhaul, and will ship in perfect playing shape.

 

This tenor came to us on mostly original pads, which are nearly 20 years old. To ensure it stays playing great for a long time to come, we are going to do a complete overhaul, including cleaning, new pads and material, and fine adjustment. We'll set the action to factory specs, and it'll feel (and play!) like a new horn when you receive it.

 

Cosmetically, this Series III looks great, with no more wear than surface scratches on the bell and body tube. There is currently one tiny ding in the tube, which we'll remove during the repad. No other dents or previous damages, and no resolders. The horn has been lovingly well cared for and is in tremendous condition.

 

This tenor plays with a clear, concise, and focused tone, very effortless, with less resistance than you might expect from a modern Selmer. Very lively horn, with a strong core that gives you plenty to build from, and projection is top notch. Depending on what mouthpiece you pair with it, this tenor can be both a solid classical horn or a ripping jazz lead tenor. Ships in its original Selmer “Light” series case.
