Selmer Paris introduced the Super Series around 1931. These horns are easily differentiated from the earlier “New Large Bore” model because they are clearly stamped SSS (Selmer Super Sax) on the bell. Selmer ads at the time hyped that these horns had the “Largest Bore and Fullest, Richest Tone of any [Alto] Saxophone made.” This instrument comes to us used from a collector. Pads are in decent shape and do still play. The horn could use a bit of work to play it's best. If you're interested in purchasing the saxophone with an included repair service, please contact the shop directly. This is not the 'cigar cutter' versior of this model. It has the updated octave mechanism.
