SELMER Lacquer Super Balanced Action Tenor (Serial Number: 52084) Back to model

This is an incredible horn - an extremely late vintage Selmer Super Balanced Action tenor saxophone, serial number 52084. This horn is gorgeous and is a fantastic player.

As you can see in the pictures, there aren't many horns from this vintage nicer than this. Original lacquer is in excellent condition, with most of the wear found on the back of the body tube and bell from normal playing. There is only very mild wear on the touch points. There are no dings, no dents, and no resoldered joints.

The sax does come with its original neck, with matching serial number. Also, the sax does feature keywork to high F#, a very rare find on a vintage SBA, since it was only available as a special order at the time.

It is a monster player with a very fast response. It has a slightly darker sound but still projects great and is a very full sounding horn.
