Selmer Balanced Action alto saxophone 32xxx silver plate

Selmer Balanced Action

Alto sax 32,xxx

Original silver plate (97%)


$ 4,850



This is quite a rare 1945 build Selmer Balanced Action alto saxophone. There were few made with these black touch points (bakelite) and this horn is in unusually good original condition. It is a very late Balanced Action and was made as Selmer were getting ready to transition to the offset keywork introduced on the Super Balanced Action.

The saxophone is in remarkable shape with nearly all its original silver plating remaining. The only wear spots are around the finger touch points. There are a couple of minuscule dings on the left side of the bottom bow and one right above the side F# tone hole. The side F# key guard has what is most likely a re-solder as indicated by the lack of plating right on that spot.

The neck is in perfect shape and was never pulled down or damaged. The bottom bow and bell flare are equally well preserved and shows no signs of any past damage, dents or repairs.

It has a recent pad job and is well regulated. All pads are soft and pliable, sealing from top to bottom and the saxophone is an effortless player.

The sound just pours out from this horn with a rich and resonant quality. It is a somewhat “weighty” tone with a great sense of power and projection.

This is quite the collectible saxophone to have and it is a really enjoyable horn to play as well!
