Selmer Paris 1927 – Modele 26
This is a very pretty vintage Selmer Modele 26 alto saxophone in original silver plate, serial number 6476. These old Modele models play with a rich and ultra sweet sonic character. This one in particular is no exception and plays with a beautiful timbre and smooth response.  
Physically this saxophone is in great shape. It shows off a clean body tube, bow, bell and bell flare. The bow cap is also in pristine original condition and was never pushed in. There is no history of any major trauma on the sax. It does show a few smallish dings around the bow area and the original marching lyre mount is unfortunately not with the saxophone. This alto does included the original neck. The neck is in very good physical condition and has never been pulled down in the past. This alto was at some point owned by a school or other institution. It shows a hand engraved serial number along the side of the body tube. See pictures.  
If you are looking to get an excellent example of a vintage alto from pre 1930 these Selmers are a great way to go. This one is currently playing through some leaks down to low C. If you are going to want to put serious play time on this saxophone it will ultimately need an overhaul. Right now we are offering it in as is condition in order to keep the price at a premium.
