Selmer S BRACE SIGNET Alto Sax Original PLATED
This woodwind is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-11-15)
Price : US $271.00
Very rare plated Signet alto, 537xxx with brand new professional repad, flat metal
resos. The plating is either silver or nickel, I am not sure. Nickel often flakes off and there is no flaking, but silver tarnishes and I don't see tarnish. Either way, the plating
is definitely adding richness to the sound over a lacquered horn. Horn was torn down and carefully set up with very snappy action, playing VERY well with a fat sound. I don't
know the history but it is likely that it was military as the military often special orders
plating. There are some typical chair dings near the lower end and the lower bell
rim is somewhat rough from work done on it. But generally the alto is good looking what
with the shine and the engraving and makes for a nicely affordable gig horn. Case is
a solid tray pack, with a worn exterior, holding flute and clarinet in the case top, latches and their springs are in working order. NO reserve so bid early and often!
If you have zero or low feed back, please contact first or your bid is void. Sold auction style, final sale.
$30 insured shipping added to winning bid in the lower 48.
