Buffet Super Dynaction – As Is Bargain Price
This is a vintage Buffet Crampon Super Dynaction tenor saxophone in original lacquer finish, serial number 8084. The Super Dynaction plays with a deeply centered dark sound. This horn in particular takes the air in easy and has exceptional sweetness to its sound. If you are are looking for a classic dark color with a very full character a Super Dynaction is a great choice. 
 
This tenor came into our shop playing decently on mostly original pads and original metal resonators.  Ultimately if you are going to put serious play time on this saxophone it will need to be completely overhauled first. Because of the long line in our shop we are currently offering this saxophone in as is condition playing on older pads at a reduced price. 
 
As it currently sits the Super Dynacton shows off an original lacquer finish with the original honey tint. There is a history of past dent and solder repair on this saxophone, some smaller dings still remain on the body and one smaller ding on the neck. 4 of the post near the table keys on the body tube were re-soldered in the past. All of the original key guards, keys and rods are intact. The bow and bow cap are also both in very good condition. This saxophone does include the original neck. At some point in the past the neck did have a pick-up repair. 
 
In order to keep the final cost down on this saxophone we are selling it in as is condition. Currently the sax is playing through leaks down to a low Bb on older pads. If you have a preferred tech in mind this would be a great way to get into a good vintage tenor at a lower price point.
