Selmer Balanced Action 1938 Tenor Saxophone Artist Owned with OHSC
1938 Selmer Balanced Action Tenor Saxophone – Artist Owned -Benny Goodman’s Band. Selmer Paris released the Balanced Action officially in 1935. It was another leap forward for Selmer, and sort of a response to the great American-made saxes that were so popular in the 20’s and 30’s. It has a bigger bore throughout, giving you some added volume with less effort. It also was the first Selmer horn to put the bell keys together on right side of the bell, a style since copied by pretty much all modern horns. A model played by many Jazz artists of the time including Stan Getz. Serial Number 26xxx puts it in the year of 1938, more than 80 years old piece of Selmer historyThe instrument was bought in an estate sale! A prime example of a Selmer Balanced Action Tenor in a great condition played in Benny Goodman’s Band by CHESTER CHET’ BENN. It has that glorious “round” sound which made BA Tenor an instant hit among saxophonists at that time playing melodies & lyrical notes. Nothing can actually beat sound of a full volume Balanced Action Tenor, arguably second to Conn 10M. It is a case of Factory relacquer, you can see that crisp engraving pattern of floral themes & Mountain with House & trees, verifying it to be well done job with proper baking as it was done in those early years. It seems that after getting relacquered from the Selmer USA factory, it was not played again until recent years. Experts can tell you that some relacquer are dead sounding but this one is vibrant and you can actually feel the resonance of notes in your hands. Also look at the natural patina, which is beautiful. No major resolders or any dents. Original Neck is Solid & round. The action is extremely light and fluid. The feeling is beautiful and helps you execute faster lines much better than any other saxophone or the market. Pads are in real good shape and have years of life in them. Comes in its Original Black Case, Original Wood Cap, Vintage Reed Box, Saxophone Pad Saver, Pack of Pads w/ Metal Resonators that were previously installed. It is getting increasingly difficult to find Balanced Action TENORS in such a good condition with solid body, old factory relacquer, crisp engraving and that elusive FAT & ROUND Tone. Your search may end with this one. It sounds as good as an original lacquer one and Ive played a few in person to confirm that. On a side note – A genuine offer near the asking price has better chance of accepting. Ships from Sayreville, NJ, USA.
