This is an extremely rare find – a completely original Selmer Paris Modele 22 alto in the original “dual-tone” finish, with silver plated body and gold plated keywork. With serial number 1948, this is one of the very early vintage Selmer Paris saxophones ever made.
This alto looks great. Though it has tarnished slightly with age, it shows virtually no finish wear. The sax features a silver plated body with gold plated keys, and gold wash inside the bell. There are no major dents and no resoldered joints anywhere. The original neck has a very slight pulldown, which is only evident upon close inspection. The sax has its original endplug, original H. Selmer Paris mouthpiece, and even the original case!
