Selmer ‘S80 – D’ Soprano – 0.052″ (Archived)

SOLD - Hard rubber, focused sound, easy response. It's a bit aged (green) but in good condition. Legit for concert band but able to cross genres too--square chamber mpcs. It arrived with factory 0.050 (incorrect for "D")...Tip will measure ~0.052" after I clean up the seal. It will play great. Sorry no lig or cap...yet.

CASE: We'll find a nice one to pair with it, a Protec ProPac.
