The original Super Balanced Action tenors are getting harder to come by
and this 54,xxx is a great example of why players seek these! The horn
has only around 10% of its original lacquer remaining and has just
received a complete overhaul by the great repairer Jim Germann.
Jim used his signature red pads and reused the original resonators. Besides a resoldered side F# keyguard, the
horn is in extraordinary physical shape and the beautiful original
Paris engraving retains all the details. Since this horn was finished
and assembled in Paris, the original neck does not have the serial
The horn also features the rarer high F# key.
The horn is so much fun to play! It has the classic slender yet
powerful and focused late SBA tone which gives a sense of lightness
combined with a depth of sound and projection. The body tube is very
resonant and the perfectly timed action is super fluid and aids in
making the horn feel instantly responsive.
