ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! This rare Buffet S-1 looks and plays great on arrival and the pads might still be original (I bet not--pads in excellent condition). The sax is being sold from the second owner! The whole horn is very clean and is original--Although it tests even lacquer experts, the story will vouch and match the Originality. It even has the original Buffet case in excellent condition to match!
Known for its well design, these heavy horns keep adjustment well and are very reliable, also excellent intonation and crazy gadgets on the Eb/C rocker, Low Bb table, High F#, & opt. F#--Highly over-engineered. The serial number is 26,0xx, which means it was made in 1976. the 70's model Buffets had a little more edge and some folks prefer them for that trait. The S-1 is actually quite brighter and bolder than the previous SDAs; so they're a cross between the Buffet SDA & a King Super 20 but lean towards the French sound.
