Pre-Owned Selmer (Paris) Super Action Alto Saxophone #38XXX


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.

General Condition

This instrument dates from 1948 and has certainly been well-played. The lacquer is virtually totally stripped, which gives the horn a vintage look that will appeal to many players. The original mother-of-pearl touchpieces have been replaced with nickel ones, which are slightly higher and make the sax very comfortable to hold. The case is in excellent condition, and has been modified with the addition of a lock. It is sold as seen and it requires a service to bring it to playing order.
