Gold Plated Selmer BA - Vintage 1937
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Balanced Action tenor saxophone in gold plate, serial number 24652. It is always a nice treat to get in any gold plated Selmer especially when it is a vintage Balanced Action. The gold plate finish was done sometime after market and is not factory original. Its gold finish has a beautiful look to it which is further complemented by the clear and crisp floral engraving. This tenor plays with a very rich and robust sonic character. The Balanced Action models are known for having a much more open and diffuse sound then the later Mark VI models. 
The body tube, bow, bell and bow cap are all in nice condition. Its bow cap is perfect and has never been pushed in over the years. The original neck is also in good shape and has never been pulled down. All the original key guards are in with the saxophone and are in great shape. Another shop recently put a brand new set of premium pads and metal resonators. It is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up and will soon be in perfect playing condition. Once the set-up work is complete we will post a play test video of the saxophone. 
Finding a gold plate vintage Selmer like this one is definitely a rare item. If you are really looking for something special you will not want to miss out on this fantastic Balanced Action tenor.
