1932 Selmer Super Sax 'Cigar Cutter' Tenor Saxophone, Original Silver Plating, Fresh Overhaul
1932 16,xxx Selmer Super Sax 'Cigar Cutter' tenor saxophone with 99% original silver plating and gold wash bell. This is a rare and striking tenor that is in excellent original condition. My repairman just performed a full overhaul on the sax, so the pads are new and the horn seals perfectly from top to bottom. This sax is essentially a 'Cigar Cutter' without the cigar cutter octave mechanism, which is usually only seen on altos from this period.
These are incredible, unique horns that in my opinion are the first Selmers that capture the unique Selmer sound and response. There's a sweetness to the sound that is undeniably Selmer. The sound is huge, but it's complex and spread out. If you are looking for something in your playing that a Mark VI or SBA doesn't give you, you need to try this horn out.
