  • Selmer Balanced Action Tenor Saxophone from 1939 Original Lacquer American Engraved 27589

    $ 10,500

    Whoever gets this horn is one lucky saxophonist. One of the best vintage Selmers to come through the shop this year, which is actually saying a lot. Maybe the best. This plays easily as well as my personal BA tenor, which was made the same year. This horn had some past repairs done as you can see: bell flare has a couple of dents that were removed, and the neck was pulled down. Some small dents were removed from the back of the body tube, and some lacquer is missing from where the bell/bow ring was soldered. The horn is now straight and feels new under the fingers. The bell flare is nice, the neck is correct, and the dents are removed from the back of the body. Even the lacquer burn on the bell ring is mostly gone and the brass aged to match the lacquer color.

    The overhaul on this horn is top notch. You’re not going to find a better setup on a Balanced Action or Super Balanced Action tenor. It is light but snappy and ‘dry’ under the fingers. Response is instant. The horn resonates like crazy under the fingers. The tone is rich and velvety, medium dark, but with a brighter edge when pushed. Resonators are the nice hand-machined TenorMadness slightly domed brass reusable ones, that are incidentally also  authentic for vintage Selmer.

    I’m including a BAM Cabine tenor case with this to keep it safe in shipping and gigging. This is one of those horns you DON’T ever sell, and that you don’t want to put down. It’s the sort of saxophone you don’t let your saxophone-playing friends play, in order to protect them from a lifetime of envy. Not kidding.
