Amazing Henri Selmer (Paris) "BALANCED ACTION" ALTO SAX FROM 1941.
Superb and totally original example that wears 100% original bright silver plate.
Never any dings or dents of any kind. Key pearls are still very sharp.
which means it left the factory in March or April of 1941. According to information from Selmer, only 749 saxophones were produced in 1941. If you figure two-thirds were altos and the rest sopranos, tenors and baritones, that means this particular instrument is one of only five hundred examples.
Bright silver finish is 100% original, no worn areas anywhere.
French engraving is still sharp, no "feathering" at the edges.
No neck damage or "pull down" and the sax is sold with the original "table C" metal mouthpiece, still in the original mouthpiece box.
The original case has, however, disappeared, so we've put a new Pro-Tech case with it.
Superb player in absolutely pristine condition.
Top recommendation on this one!
