is a 38,xxx SBA tenor in outstanding mechanical condition. It has just
received a Tenor Madness overhaul and is set up with the Pisoni Pro
pads and Tenor Madness reusable screw-in brass resonators. It feels
super smooth and comfortable under your fingers.
We believe it to be a re-plate, done to the same standards as an
original plating. There is faint evidence of dent work done on the left
side of the bottom bow and on the side of the neck - all done well. The
bottom bow brace itself as well as the bell flare looks to have never
damaged. Besides a few tiny dings, the horn is in very good shape.
It is a fantastic playing SBA! From the moment your airstream hit
the mouthpiece the horn resonates and vibrates with a rich, round and
focused tone. It is quite quick responding and very powerful! The sound
is in the middle of dark/bright spectrum but very complex - there is
both a depth and warmth coupled with a resonant “wet” sizzle that makes
it very expressive at all dynamic levels. You can play it rich and
sweet or ride on top of the band with a powerful projection that
carries to the back of the room.
Don’t be turned off by the refinished classification - this one is a
player that is world class!
