Selmer Super Action 80 Baritone Saxophone, Just Serviced
Selmer Super Action baritone saxophone, s/n 338237. This is a one-owner saxophone that is in excellent original condition with 97%+ original lacquer. The sax has a mix of pads still with a lot of life left in them. My tech just gave it a full service, replacing 5 pads, the neck cork, the water key cork, 2 felts and 2 key corks. He also regulated the pads, so the horn is currently playing at a very high level. The entire range speaks with ease and fluidity. The sax comes in a ProTec case which is also in good condition.
This is an interesting model, because it shares more in common with the Mark VI than a Series II. The horn feels and plays like it too. It has great projection in all registers and can really cut when you pair it with a Berg Larsen or Otto Link. There's a very nice resonance and depth to the sound without it being to tubby and dark. Plus, the horn has a low A and high F#, which is a must for many bari players. My advice: if you're in the market for a low A Mark VI, save a few thousand and buy this one instead!
