    Default Superb Selmer Serie II alto for sale

    Selmer Serie II alto for sale. Great player. Two owners, the first was a sax major at a major school of music, and the second by a professional player (me). Kept in tip-top playing condition. Maintained by Harvey Pittel's tech. Cork risers professionally added on L.H palm keys. Very little cosmetic wear. New Selmer case.

    Price includes shipping and handling from Texas and I will deduct $45.00 for after-shipping tech adjustment.

    Asking $2,900.

    New price, $2,500.00 shipped (to CONUS)

    This is a sweet deal. I auditioned Selmer horns in Germany over a three month period at a Selmer specific shop, and the Serie II was my favorite by far. And case, alone, is a bargain. Brand new.

    And the alto has landed!

    When Gary says "very little cosmetic wear" and "tip-top playing condition", there is no hyperbole - this is a seriously wonderful horn.

    Gary is a pleasure to deal with.

    Thank you, Gary.

    Is this sax for you, or for a relative/friend/student?

    ... and if the former, did I fall on my head?

    Yes, the horn is for me. I'm looking at retirement and relocation, so I'm going to fire up my alto chops in case that's what I need to enhance my playing opportunities in a new region. No more bari sax, as I played to gain entre to the local scene where I currently live. Back when I played alto, the Serie II was my fav', so when this one popped up, I recognized is as a positive thing.

    This sale show's how sweet is the future for those who are not looking ONLY for mark vi's! This horn, in this condition for 2100 euros, it's just a huge bargain. Meanwhile there are already 6 digit mk vi altos going for 8000... In other words, god bless the mark vi! best horn ever made for those who don't want it!

    Just a question. In one of the photos, the neck seems to be with a different color tone then the rest of the body! Is it the original neck?
