SML – Rev. C
This is a very nice vintage SML Rev. C tenor saxophone in original gold lacquer, serial number 7798. The SML shows some normal cosmetic wear from past play time but is physically in outstanding condition. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in great original condition. There is no signs the saxophone ever received major repair in the past. It is with the original neck which is also in excellent condition. 
 
These SML tenors showcase rolled tone holes and key work to front F. They also feature a tilting auxiliary key which allows you to have either a articulated or non articulated G#. It takes the air in easy and is very free blowing The Rev C plays with a huge sound with a warm color and plenty of projection. The response and character of sound is akin to the early Mark VI models by Selmer. 
 
This tenor came into our shop playing up a storm on an older pad job. It is on a set of standard grade leather pads and brown nylon resonators. These pads are on the older side but are still supple at this time. Ultimately if you are planning on doing a lot of playing on this saxophone it will need a overhaul at some point in the near future. Because the horn is currently playing nicely on an older job we are choosing to sell it in as is condition with out putting any of our work into it. As such we are able to offer it at a considerably better price. 
 
This saxophone ships out in as is condition with a wood box hard case.
