This alto is in fantastic shape and has obviously been well cared for. The body shows nothing more than light cosmetic scratching, mostly on the bell and bottom bow from normal use.There are no resolders anywhere, and no dents in the bottom bow. There was previously a bend in the bell lip flare with light lacquer loss from that repair, as seen in the photos, but that is the only past repair on this horn. The original neck has never been pulled down or damaged. Pads are all still in great shape. I find the Reference horns to be a comfortable blend of a modern Selmer Series II and the classic vintage Selmers of old. It has a definite darker quality to its tone, but is more open feeling than a Series II or III, with good response in the lower end and a lively upper range and altissimo. Not as focused as other modern Selmers, it still has a strong core that allows you to shape your tone to suit your needs. Ships in its original case.
