PRETTY! This rare Buffet S-1 looks and plays great on arrival with pads that were worked on elsewhere. We will adjust the playability to verify it to play awesome right out of the box. The case is a molded SKB hard case in good shape.
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 31,9xx, which means it was made in 1981. the later the era, the more edge the sax will have; 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.
