Selmer Super Action 80
Serie II Tenor Saxophone

Serial Number N640061 (Mfg. in the early 2000's?)

SOLD - July 2011

This is a wonderful professional Selmer horn with the flexibility to suit a variety of musical styles.

In excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, this horn is sans floral engraving...just the Selmer logo Imprimatur.
It is a sleek instrument which will be a boon companion for the serious musician.
The pads have metal resonators to increase projection and balance out the naturally dark tone of the Series II.
The pads are in great condition.
The keyaction is fast and snappy, but the springs are not overly strong.

The prior owner installed two small risers, one on the side Bb and one on the High D, that I have left on the horn...they make sense and felt comfortable to me, but they are easily removed if you want to come up with something that fits your hands better.

There are a few scratches here and there, which I have striven to photograph, but nothing that shows up from a few feet away.
I found no dents at all.
Neck is in very good, original condition...no pull-down.

Comes with a Selmer Vanguard case with a few custom mods.
For example, a couple extra cushions (HERE and HERE) were added to prevent the neck from shifting and moving around inside the case.
