Selmer 1985 ‘Super Action 80 Series I’ Eb Baritone, Low A #376k

$5,399.00 - Strong Selmer build, keyed up to F#, down to low A... Here's a real gem. Save your money from the Series II and strongly consider this Series I. Ser#376k dates it to 1985. In original lacquer and overall in good condition. This horn was loved and used all at the same time and has been in the closet for 10 years. There are a few bumps to mention: Eb guard had foot resoldered, and bell lip shows signs of straightening work, also some other common dents/dings from chairs and use.
PADS: Currently it is in the original pads (tan with metal resos). They do play well to Low A but I would recommend some near-immediate maintenance. (PC bill: $200+). They could be stretched longer and a full rebuild is optional, not required.
CASE: A hard case with the Buffet logo on it. It is in good condition.
REBUILD: Optional! - This listing is for "as is", but I would advise a new owner to plan to put in $200-400 of small repairs into it. Or you could hire WWS to rebuild it as part of the purchase. Depending on how the numbers work out, you basically end up with a -$200 savings off a regular rebuild price. please inquire.

Selmer ‘S80 C*’ Baritone, Rubber – 0.079″ (Archived)

SOLD - A "must have" for concert band! A hard rubber mouthpiece that is a great addition to any player and especially those on a budget. Due to what I know of this mouthpiece, it came with my friend's sax from about 1984-86; aka, this is from the early era! Consider that new pricing is $240-270.00 ... come quick!
Marketed Description via WWBW:
"Precision crafted with a firm yet responsive feel. -- The Selmer S80 tenor saxophone mouthpiece is a popular design, and one of the biggest sellers in the marketplace. It is constructed from hard rod rubber, which lends it outstanding stability, accuracy and consistent facings. Whereas most mouthpieces have an arched cross-section in the chamber, the S80 is square. Students stepping up from a stock mouthpiece will experience a dramatic improvement in register changes and tonguing immediately in terms of tone and response."

Buescher ‘Whitehall’ Baritone, 1940s (WWS Reface) – 0.102″ (Archived)

SOLD - Custom Reface! + Large chamber! - A vintage hard rubber mouthpiece that is a copy of a vintage Buescher that I would approximate from the 1940s. This one had a large chamber and the original tip (needing some minor seal help) at 0.074" on arrival. Now it measures 0.102". it is an easy blower and has a big sound. It must be a unique blend because you seldom see a large chamber that remains with a high-rollover baffle. Large chamber & high baffle from custom reface. Item: WWSL4.7W6.12151.6-018

MC Gregory ‘Gale Companion 4M’ Baritone, 1960s (RAC+WWS Reface) – 0.089″

$1,000.00 - On arrival, this looks to be a 100% Original tip at 0.079", sadly, the chip in the tip will require us to save it -- we all know this is totally worth saving. Bob Carpenter and I will tag-team this one to ensure that it meets both of our standards. It also arrived with a few nicks on a rail--we will treat this mouthpiece with extreme care and preservation; we will fix all necessary items. TIP, after repair: 0.089". Consider that the Hollywood models now demand $900-1500+, and these are credited with being nearly identical with a medium chamber.
Gerry Mulligan played on one, a 5M. .... and we're forced to raise our 4M size, to 5M, if you catch my drift.
