    Default "Bel Air" "Made in Checkoslovakia" tenor saxophone

    hi,fellow sax players

    RARE!
    For your consideration is a beautiful
    "Bel Air" "Made in Checkoslovakia" tenor saxophone
    Gold lacquered witn nickel keys
    Art Deco engraved bell

    Except of several shallow scratches [pictured],I would describe this as a closet horn

    Serial number is
    82xxx

    neck has matching serial number too

    The exact engraving is:
    on the bell:
    "BEL AIR"
    on the neck tennon
    "Made in Czechoslovakia"

    Pads are in excellent condition with metal resonators

    My assumption:this Keilwerth stencil made by Amati

    Low octave plays fine with huge dark sound
    Upper octave has a small issue with octave key pad which is not sealing completely

    I'll suggest to bring it to your favorite tech to set up/adjust to get 100% of that beauty
    Response/action is fast

    More detailed pictures can be provided by request

    Price : 975 USD shipped in US/Canada from Montreal,QC.
    Payment via PayPal [f/f no fees for me].
