The balanced action saxophone is one of the best ever made. The SBA and Mark VI tend to get more "press", but the Balanced Action is really the horn that put Selmer on the map! This one was re-lacquered at some point in time, but has lead a fairly healthy life. Has had some dent work on the tube by the strap hook, and on the back of the bow by the Eb key. It has a ding on the top of the bell and has had the F# key guard re-soldered. The neck has had no repairs and is in spectacular condition. It has no pulldown and is structurally great. The pads on this are older and there is some mechanical play, so this horn really needs an overhaul. It hasn't been played in 30 years according to the previous owner. Reguardless, this will make a great playing horn for someone that wants to put the work in! Contact Simon for more information.
