My certified repair tech with 35 yrs experience has told me this appears to be an ORIGINAL LACQUER SAXOPHONE. 933 Selmer Super Sax alto saxophone, s/n 17621. This is a rare late model Super Sax, stamped SSS on the bell, which stood for Selmer Super Sax.The Super Sax is commonly referred to as the Cigar Cutter model due to the unique octave mechanism that the earlier versions have. Selmer updated the octave key design around s/n 17250 and. Fewer than 1000 altos were made of this type before the Radio Improved model came out in 1934. My research shows the later models did not have the "Cigar Cutter Octave Mechanism".
Professional players have been snapping up these fantastic playing and sounding Selmer's. Nice ones in this condition are rarely available. This Classic "Selmer Super Sax" has been rebuilt, new pads, tone holes leveled, adjusted, and has a tone unheard on modern saxophones. It has a gorgeous, warm, open sound that is darker than a Balanced Action but still projects remarkably well. The picture is of the Father and Son.
Note: Don't pay more for an inferior new instrument. That's my promise to you. I evaluate and play every instrument and accessories I sell.
