This is an extremely rare example of a later vintage Selmer Paris c-melody saxophone. Only a handfull of C-melody Selmer Paris saxophones were ever made after 1930.
The horn looks fantastic in its original silver plate with gold wash bell. As far as C-Melody horns go, these early Selmer's are fantastic. The modele 28 was really the first good playing Selmer, and this C-Melody is a great example of that. The intonation is fairly good, and the sound is a little more solid than most Conns we have played.
To hear a Selmer Super C-Melody in full swing check out the recordings The Chakra Suite and Embrace by Dave Pietro. Dave is one of the top contemporary performers on the C-Melody.
