This Selmer Balanced Action Eb alto saxophone is suitable for the advanced or professional saxophonist looking for an vintage instrument that can last their career.
The Balanced Action model from Selmer ran from 1936-1948 when they moved onto the Super Action. The Balanced Action was something of an innovative design and it is really the first Selmer model to have what we would now regard as the 'modern layout' in terms of key design and it was this new ergonomic feel that helped propel Selmer to the heights they experienced in this golden period.
This sax is one of their earliest models dating back to 1937 and still has its original lacquer, though this is very worn in places. This pro-level horn is responsive and powerful displaying a characteristic Selmer sound, capable of a stunning performance.
Wear & Tear Observations: There are no signs of dents or repairs to the saxes body. There is significant lacquer wear to the saxes body, bell and bow as could be expected on an instrument of this age with its original lacquer. This sax has recently been serviced by our workshop ready for sale.
Service Notes: A pre delivery service/check will be undertaken prior to shipping. At busy periods this may entail a small delay. If this order is urgent please contact us as we are usually able to expedite.
