Here is a vintage Selmer Balanced Action alto sax, serial number 26987, in original matte silver finish. This horn hasn't seen a load of playing, and is in outstanding original condition.
The silver plating on this horn is over 98% intact, with just minor wear in a couple spots. It has never taken a dent or ding, and the only resolder work is on alternate F# key guard, done professionally. The original neck is also in perfect physical condition with just a small amount of finish wear near the cork.
The silver plating on this horn warms up an already rich sound, making this a very sweet playing alto. It plays with a darker sound and offers the player a small amount of resistance, which really lets you push it and makes shaping notes much easier.
