    Re: selmer usa tenor

    Your sax is a model 164 which soon became the TS-100. Along with the alto model 162 (Omega) which became the AS-100, these were the only professional model horns made by Selmer USA. These are...

    Re: Selmer Omega?

    I occasionally check eBay for these horns. An Omega/162 or AS-100 will pop up every 3-4 months. The few I've seen lately have, in my opinion, all been over priced ($1900 or more). You just have...

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    The Model 162, 164, AS100, TS100 horns ALL had only the USA logo and nothing else on the bell that designated the model of the horn.

    As far as I know, all of the model 162, 164, AS100, TS100...

    Re: Omega?

    I *think* they started with 820xxx. I've never seen an Omega/162/164 with an 800xxx or 810xxx serial number.
  5. Re: Looking to put a new neck on a Selmer 164: Suggestions?

    Glad you didn't take the advice of the guy who told you to bite the bullet and sell the sax for a Paris model! Obviously that was someone who is not familiar with this particular line of saxes :)

    Re: Selmer Omega?

    I'm curious... Were there any Selmer USA 9xx,xxx horns or did both the alto and tenor lines jump from 8xx,xxx to 1,xxx,xxx?

    Re: Identification and Information

    With that serial number, it's an AS100, which is pretty much identical to the 162 (Omega). The differences are the pearl oval F#, a plastic thumb rest, slightly less elaborate engraving on the bell...
  8. Re: Differences in bore size between "Omega" AS100 and AS110 altos: does anyone know?

    The only differences between a 162 and an AS100 that I've commonly read about on the net are:
    Metal bar F# and pearl oval F#
    Metal thumb rest and plastic thumb rest
    Rose gold lacquer and lighter...
  9. Re: need help identifying selmer make, may of got the bargain of the year?

    I got an error when I tried to view your pics. Going by A Greene's reply though, if the keys are nickle-plated, it's not one of Selmer USA's pro horns.

    The model 164 and TS100 horns will have a...

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    Someone has definitely taken an engraving tool and added that box around the USA by hand. It's not symmetrical and not very well centered around the USA. I don't know why someone would do that but...

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    That horn has been on ebay for $3000 for at *least* nine months. I saw it when I was shopping for a tenor. It looks like someone has taken an engraving tool and added that box around the USA. I'm...

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    If this comment is just about the Selmer USA pro tenor horns, then I believe you. If you are including the model 162 altos, then you're flat out wrong about the USA pro-line horns never having a...

    I'm not arguing at all. Everything I've posted is speculation based on my experience and research mostly done on these forums. I'm absolutely sure that 'Omega' is not engraved anywhere on the...

    I don't really know. The guy that owned the shop where I bought it talked the horn up like it was a brand new offering from Selmer. I was fresh out of high school and trading in my Bundy that I'd...

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    I think these two statements are wrong. The first statement is misleading. I don't believe any of the 1980-1990s Selmer USA pro horns ever had 'Omega' anywhere on them. They simply have USA on the...

    Re: can't tell what kind my tenor is.

    From the early 80s through the early 90s, Selmer USA produced some very fine professional horns. These are the 'Omega' models (model 162 alto and 164 tenor), which soon became the AS100 and TS100...

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    I think I recall seeing a picture of one for sale that had the high F# bar, but I'm not sure. My 162 alto has the bar. It's serial #8206xx. I can post a pic of it when I get a chance.

    Re: Selmer USA Model 164 and TS100 differences?

    I'd like to know the answer to this as well. The only thing that I know of that changed on those models was the high F# key. I believe on the very early models it was a brass bar and soon after the...
