This is an absolutely beautiful GOLD plated Selmer “Super” tenor sax, serial number 17354.
This horn was overhauled by Saxquest's Duncan Bamsey in 2006. The overhaul was complete with beautiful gold plate finish. The sax was tripple silver plated and then gold plated, as per the original factory specifications. It was painstakingly prepared for plating by hand-rag cleaning and was never subjected to any buffing. All of the stamping is perfect. The guys at Saxquest said this is the most stunning Selmer Super they have ever seen!!!
The instrument is physically perfect. There are no past dent repairs and no resolder joints. The original neck is in perfect condition.
This is a real sweet sounding horn. The gold plating gives it that little extra *something*. The sound is powerful with a slight spead around the edges. It has an extremely emotive character and responds quickly to subtle changes in air stream and throat position. Man, what a horn....... it's the perfect vehicle for self-expression! The warm tone really envelops the listener.
