This is a vintage Selmer Paris Modele 22 alto saxophone, serial number 2379. The Modele 22 was one of the very early models manufactured by Selmer. This one in particular dates back to 1924. Sonically, these horns play with a huge spread sound and tons of projection. This one came into our shop playing nicely on a set of older leather pads and brown plastic resonators.
The body of the alto is in very solid condition for a horn of this vintage. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in great shape. The original neck is also with the sax. Its in good condition and has never been pulled down. This alto was most likely original released in raw brass. At some point in the past someone did a lacquer job on this one. Much of the lacquer still remains while some raw brass is showing in places. 
It has been some time since the alto has seen serious servicing and would ultimately need at least most of an overhaul before it was back in perfect playing condition. But as it currently sits it is playing up a store on some older pads. Because of this and the collectable nature of this early alto we are selling it in as is condition. Ships with vintage wood box tripac case.
