S1 Alto by Buffet Crampon – High F#
This is a very nice original lacquer Buffet S1 alto sax in gold lacquer, serial number 26543. The S1 is a beautifully crafted professional alto. It features a rich timbre with a tightly focused core. It showcases some of the most unique and comfortable key work around. Most notably featuring roller-less construction in the right hand table keys. The left hand table key cluster has an additional pivot on the low Bb to improve ease of movement in the lower register.  This S1 does feature key work to high F#. 
 
 
The S1 is in gorgeous condition showing off original gold lacquer finish and crisp engraving. There is a light amount of play wear to the lacquer from past use but nothing serious. The body of the instrument is in rock solid condition and shows no signs it has ever seen serious past repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in exceptional  shape. There have been zero solder repairs on this saxophone. The alto comes with the original neck. It is also in good condition and has never pulled down. 
This alto was re-padded in the last few years in another shop with black roo pads and metal nyok resonators. While the pads are all in great shape the alto is due for some general set-up work as well as key fitting. At this time we are offering this saxophone in as is condition in order to keep the price at a premium. If you would like to add a Saxquest set-up onto the purchase please add the option when addition the saxophone to your shopping cart. 
 
The S1 ships out in as is condition with the original box case.
