Product Description

About this beautiful SBA Alto

Selmer SBA Super Balanced Action alto in great condition. Overhauled about a year ago and light use since then.
This has Music Medic Chocolate Roo Pads, the action is nice and tight (not that it was sloppy before the overhaul, but a couple of rods were suaged) NB: these pads have quite a firm feel to them

Lacquer is good with some slight spotting as you can see.

Original lacquer? I presume not based the engraving in places as you can see. But it isn’t overbuffed or anything bad. Lacquer is a lovely honey goldish colour and done very well, looks very nice IMO.

This dates to around 1946/7 so one of the first Super (Balanced) Actions.

It has black keytouch on G#, I have no reason to believe this is not original as apparently this was a feature of some wartime models.

At some stage in its life the detachable bow was soldered to the body, when overhauling I elected to leave it like this as I prefer it.

Here are just a few recordings I have made with this saxophone:
