Selmer Modele 22 Alto Saxophone
This vintage Selmer Alto is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct having been last owned by a collector. This is a fine vintage instrument with silver plate finish that is in remarkably good condition for its age, which is approaching 100 years old. There are only a few minor dings, and some scratches and a patina to the silver plate . It plays responsively across the range and has a focused tone quality in keeping with its narrow bore. It speaks quickly and the keywork is light and responsive. The pads are all tan leather in excellent condition. The serial number is 2484 which dates to 1924. The m'piece is a plastic student example. The supplied modern case has some slight tears to the interior lining and exterior scuffs, but latches securely.
