SELMER Silver Plate Balanced Action Alto (Serial Number: 32611) Back to model

This is a beautiful original silver-plated Selmer Balanced Action alto saxophone, serial number 32611. It has 95+% of its original silver plating still intact. There are just a couple light surface scratches on the body and bell. The only wear is on the thumb rest, octave key, bottom key guard, and around the low C sharp key.

The body itself is in excellent shape. It has never had any dents or resoldering work. The sax is complete with the original black bakeolite key touches.

The horn responds with ease. It has a very smooth transition up and down the registers. The tone is warm and resonant. The key action is precise, rivaling that of a new horn. The intonation is right on throughout the entire range of the instrument.
