Buy second hand with confidence

Unless stated otherwise, all of our pre-owned, ex-demo and ex-display instruments are cleaned and checked, set up or serviced in our workshop prior to sale.

Our Description

Selmer are widely thought of as being the true home of the saxophone; the company bought the workshop of Adolfe Sax (inventor of the saxophone) in 1929, and this was until the early 1980s still one of the company's prime production facilities. Selmer (Paris) saxophones are still handmade in France and remain prestigious and sought-after.

The Super Action 80 was developed by Selmer in the 1980s in response to the (perhaps unjustified) muted reception given to the Selmer Mk VII. It was widely hailed as a success and helped restore Selmer's reputation and fortunes.

General Condition

This beautiful silver-plated instrument is in good playing order, although it would benefit from an oil and adjust. The silver-plate is generally good, although there are a couple of patches where the brass below is now showing through. This instrument, dating from 1982, is sold as seen, factoring in the price of a service.

This item is sold “as seen”. It has not been checked in our workshop prior to sale, and this is reflected in the selling price.
