Selmer SBA tenor sax 43xxx American engraving

Selmer Super Balanced Action

Tenor Sax # 43,xxx

Factory relac

American assembled & engraved

Sale Pending

This 43k SBA has around 50% of its lacquer remaining. We have chosen to err on the side of caution and calling this a very well done factory relac. Although the engraving looks original, with the correct sharpness and light reflection, the color of the lacquer is correct for an original 1951 American assembled SBA, there remains an indicator that it could be an extremely well done factory relacquer. This horn was most certainly hand-buffed with no indication of machine buffing anwhere.

The horn is in good condition. Bell flare and bottom bow do not show any signs of past repairs and are in perfect shape. The matching numbered neck is at correct angle and round shape. There was a plug near the neck cork and we removed it and installed a new plug that is flush on both inside and outside (please see pics).

The horn has a recent pad job in it (not by us) and we have gone through the horn to ensure pefect playing condition.

It is a terrific player! The tone-feel is round and very focused - projects out like a tight beam of sound! The sound is very "shape-able" with a concentration in the mid and high mid-tone frequencies. It feels fluid and quick under your fingers and is really a joy to play. A really great example of why so many players seek out these SBA tenors!

If you have any questions about this horn, please feel free to give us a call at 212-683-2985 or email us at info@kbsax.com.
