A Selmer Gold Plated Balanced Action Alto Saxophone 1937. An opportunity to acquire a Selmer balanced action saxophone. Also please ask questions or request specific photographs and I will do my best to provide what is required. This very collectible saxophone is in really amazing condition for its 84years. It is free blowing and in playable condition although probably requiring a service.The pads are relatively recent and in good condition and all the keys are free moving as are the rollers. It has been well played but also very well looked after. The instrument is gold plated in smooth and satin finishes and there are no dents however there is a very small and slightly flattened patch at bottom rear that Ive tried to show on the pictures. Some of the keys show play wear and in places you can see the gold has worn through to the silver plate and beyond to the brass especially around the thumb rest and neck support ring.
The engraving is very ornate and crisp. It comes in its original fitted case that works - however one catch has lost its spring although it still shuts ok.
Thank you all for looking.
