Vintage Selmer BA Tenor – Vintage 1938
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Balanced Action Tenor Sax, Serial #26624. The Balanced Action tenors are well known for being ultra resonant free blowing players. This one is extremely rich in both sound and response. Its sonic character is on the warmer side and full of color. While the sax does have a very warm core sound its projection is outstanding. The colorful sound and amazing response on this tenor allows for it to be played with an ample amount of power when desired. Another shop recently re-padded this saxophone with a set of premium leather pads and metal domed resonators. The pads are all new and are in perfect condition. It is in need of a good set-up so it is currently in line in the Saxquest shop. Once complete the sax will be in perfect playing condition. 
The body of this saxophone is in great condition for its vintage. Like most Balanced Action tenors it was at some point re-lacquered in the past. The current lacquer is in nice shape and the sax shows no history of major repair or serious re-solders. It does showcase crisp floral engraving with a beautiful center piece. The original neck to this saxophone is in good condition and has never been pulled down. Some of the key pearl touches do show some wear. 
This saxophone is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. It will ship out in perfect playing condition in a protec contoured case.
