It plays great now, as you can hear in the video demonstration below. See the product in action. This sax is in excellent physical condition. The body is perfectly straight, and the neck has not been pulled down, or otherwise damaged. I found one tiny nick on the bow, but there are no significant dents or dings.
I don't see any re-soldered joints. The lacquer is almost 100% intact with virtually no scratching. The keys are all moving freely and fluidly.
The pads are on the older side, but still sealing properly. It might need a few replaced another year or two down the road, but it is good for the foreseeable future. This sax comes in its original hard shell case. The case is also in very good condition. There are a few minor spots where the exterior covering is scuffed away, but it is solid and protects the horn as it should.The interior is clean and odor free, with minimal wear. This sax comes with the following accessories: mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cap, neck strap, reed case, cork grease, and misc.
The mouthpiece is the original Selmer Goldentone plastic mouthpiece. To be honest, it isn't the best, but I'm including it for the sake of keeping original accessories with the horn. It will work to get you started, but I'd highly advise getting something better for the long term.
I'd be happy to make a recommendation from my inventory, or elsewhere upon request. The included mouthpiece has been cleaned/sanitized. This would be a great horn for the beginner on a budget. It would also be a perfect for'doublers', such as a flute or clarinet player who wants to take up sax in order to play in school jazz band. It could even be good for gigging players who want a cheap horn for busking, or playing in bars.
