1930 Henri Selmer Super Series SSS New Large Bore Tenor Saxophone NO RESERVE
Up for sale is a 1930 Selmer New Large Bore (Early Super Sax) Tenor Saxophone! This is a great find! Serial number is 13096, which puts it as being made in 1930. The saxophone is in fantastic shape and has been repadded. There are some small dings and scratches but the most part it is in great condition. It has the original lacquer. It has scratched off in spots and lets the lacquer color come through. The only mechanical issue is that it appears that the High F left palm key has a bent rod which is making it hard to press (still functions). It comes with a hard case (not original) as well as a neck strap and the ORIGINAL, never used, polishing cloth and swab. It does NOT come with a mouthpiece, ligature or reed. This sax is a transitional sax from the 26 to the Super Series/Cigar Cutter horns. I'm most certainly open to new information you may have about this saxophone and would love to know if I should add/change to the classification of the horn. I take extreme care in packaging horns that I sell and get them packaged and out of the door under 24 hours! I make sure that every instrument I sell, unless stated otherwise, is in great playing condition. EDIT: Took the sax to an area pro and he noticed that the cork under the high F was too large, so it isn't actually bent and works perfectly now.
He says the horn plays similar to the SBA and loved it. Have had a few questions about the horn: -The receiver has not been replaced. There is a color difference at a line but it is the original receiver. There may have been something covering that area when it was in storage for a long time.
You can message me if you would like more photos of the saxophone in specific locations. If you are in the area you are more than welcome to come play the saxophone.
