Selmer Paris Super Balanced Action
This is a gorgeous Selmer Paris Super Balanced Action tenor saxophone, serial number 48041. The tenor show cases a stunning satin and burnished silver finish and is quite the looker. In addition to being a beautiful instrument it is also a world class player. It takes the air in smooth and easy and has a deeply resonant free blowing sound. The added weight from the silver finish also seems to enhance the naturally rich character of this instrument. Projection and the overall power of this saxophone is tremendous. 
 
This sax is a truly beautiful specimen. Its silver plating on this tenor as an aftermarket addition by a previous owner of this instrument. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in excellent condition. The bow cap is also in great shape and does not show history of ever being pushed in. Because this is not the original finish it is difficult to comment on the repair history prior to the silver plating. Its current satin and burnished silver format is in beautiful condition. There are some smaller scratches and cosmetic wear along the instrument but nothing of major note. All of the key guards and guard feet are in excellent condition. This saxophone does include the original neck matching serial number stamp.  It does show it has had some history of past repair most likely before it was silver plate. As it sits now it is in perfect working order. 
 
The SBA was came into our shop playing up a storm on a recent overhaul from another shop. Saxquest is also going to go through the horn top to bottom and give it our pro set-up. We will optimize all the key heights and make sure all of the black roo pads are perfectly sealing. This tenor ships out in perfect playing condition. Do not miss out on a beautiful and unique pro player!
