The case might be the original, can't say for certain. Price includes original cheap case + a new ProTech. Never dented or dinged, very clean original instrument. ALL pads and corks were new in May of this year. In 1946, Selmer built 1349 saxophones, two-thirds of them altos.This one's absolutely pristine. Never dinged or dented, no worn spots to the silver, no re-solders or neck pull-down. In a word, it's PERFECT. NOT a modern sax, though.
Superb intonation means low notes are NOT a quarter-step sharp. Use a VanDoren 2 1/3 or 3 on a modern Selmer mouthpiece and you'll be amazed at the warm and liquid tone-color. Think Lauren Bacall in "Casablanca". It's THAT good a sax! We have no hesitation in recommending it to the most particular musician.It's in addition to any factory guarantees. For two full years, we will repair or replace (whichever in our estimation is the more advisable), pads, corks, springs or other parts required, at no charge to the customer.
In the event of cracked or damaged wood sections, we will repair at no cost to the customer or replace the section and charge the customer only for our net costs for the replacement section.
