This Selmer made Adoplhe Sax saxophone dates from approximately 1924. The sound is clean, tight, and airy, reminiscent of Antoine-Joseph's early bass clarinet experiments. This sound went away completely around 1940 with the arrival of the original Buescher Aristocrats. The crook has been modified, so that it is tuned at A440hz, as opposed to the early french tuning of A435hz.
This instrument is in very good condition for its age. The lacquer is in good condition, with some general tarnish on the body and neck. There are also some dents in the body towards the bottom C key.
The case is in good condition.
