Awesome Player – Fresh Overhaul from SQ Shop
 
This is a fantastic playing vintage SML Rev. D alto saxophone in perma gold finish, serial number 11144. The alto recently received an overhaul in our shop by Josh Creekmore. This professional overhaul included a disassemble, clearing, precise key fitting and a fresh set-up. It now is in perfect playing condition with all new premium Valentino leather pads, black Ferree's cone shaped nylon resonators, blue needle springs and as well as new corks and felts. 
 
The physical body of the saxophone is in very nice condition show casing the original perma gold finish. Perma-gold is sometimes mistaken for gold plate because of its look, but it is actually a lacquer-like finish applied over sliver plating. The finish shows the history of plenty of past play time. Its body tube, bell and bow are all in great shape. The bow cap is also in nice condition and has never been pushed in. There are a couple of re-solders located on lower key guard feet. The original neck to this saxophone is in good physical condition and has not been pulled down. 
 
While it is not the prettiest SML we have had in it is certainly one of the better players. This alto plays with a world class sound and is quite free blowing. The key work feels nice and smooth under the fingers as well. Theses saxophones feature rolled tone hole construction as well as a unique articulated G# selector lever. 
 
Do not miss out on a world class vintage alto! This sax ships in perfect playing condition.
