Selmer Super Balanced Action Tenor Saxophone #53,XXX

Product Description

Our latest available Super Balanced Action, this tenor has the classic SBA presence and resonance. Despite its late serial number, this saxophone has the sound, feel and look of a horn from the big band era. The weight of the saxophone and the bell and bow engraving are very involved and ornate, reminiscent of what you would see on the more intricate Balanced Action. This horn is in fine cosmetic condition, and still has a large portion of its original lacquer remaining. The core of the sound is strong, while retaining enough body to keep it from being too shrill up high, and too tubby down in the low end. The neck is in beautiful condition, with no pull-down to speak of. This is a horn that has the lived-in feel of a player’s horn: the pearls are rounded and the lacquer has been rubbed away from years of playing. As a result, this is an extremely player-friendly horn that needs not be broken in; it’s completely ready to go. This is a more versatile SBA; the sound can be gentile and round, or more robust and aggressive.
