This is a barely played-since-new vintage Buffet Super Dynaction, which was their top pro model alto saxophone from the 50’s through the 70’s. The Super Dynaction deserves to be ranked alongside the Selmer Mark VI as one of the best all-around alto saxophones ever made, and early examples like this are hard to find in great shape, so this horn has a good potential to increase in value as appreciation for these excellent horns increases.
Cosmetically, it is super clean and has just a few spots where the lacquer has begun to wear, like under the bell lip. This is from age, not from use, as the horn has evidently barely ever been played. It still has the factory final coat of lacquer remaining on the pearl key touches, all original pads hardly used, basically no wear on touch points, no past repairs. It’s a very untouched example.
It plays nicely with a big, warm French core to the tone. It is Selmer-like, but with a bigger sound overall and with lots of power, while remaining dark and lyrical. It is medium dark and open with a nice complex core. This horn will literally do it all. The beautiful, original Lifton case comes with it, also in very clean condition. You could play this horn for a while with only minimal tweaking to the factory pads and it would play quite well, or you could get a fresh repad for the full experience, and I’d be happy to help you with getting that done by someone really good, according to my picky standards.
