Buffet S1
This is a lovely Buffet S1 alto saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 24003. The S1 was a made specifically with the classical player in mind. They play with a dark and centered core sound and are extremely precise regarding pitch. The body of this particular alto is in great shape showing some modest play wear. All of the key pearls still feel nice and crisp. The body tube, bow, bell and bow cap are all in nice original condition as is the original neck. There has been absolutely no re-solders on this instrument.  
The S1 has a very unique and highly ergonomic key system. Its big showcase is the no roller low C and Eb table keys. In addition it also has a double split mechanism on the low Bb key to make the low note transition smoother. This particular S1 does not have a high F#. The S1 is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. Once the set-up is complete it will be in perfect playing condition. Instrument does ship with original Buffet wood hard case.
