Selmer Super Balanced Action Alto Saxophone #54,XXX

Product Description

This 1954 alto is an example of a Super Balanced Action that really projects! A relacquer, this late-production SBA has seen a lot of playtime in its day. It embodies the sweet core that made the Super Balanced famous, but is a little bit more responsive than other horns of its vintage. This could be a great horn for someone looking for a less resistant vintage Selmer, or someone looking to play in a louder situation with a horn that has a little more juice to its sound.

In addition to the relacquer, this horn has had a few other modifications. Firstly a pickup was added to the neck (and then removed), and two strips were soldered along the side of the neck to prevent pull-down. The left hand thumb pearl was sanded down like a key pearl, which makes this horn very comfortable to hold. Additionally, this horn has a high F# key. A fantastic horn!
