Price: SOLD

Built for the player, this modified 10M is from the prime era, with newer pads, brass resos, in silver plate, S# 311k, rolled toneholes, with a few modifications:

-neckstrap ring lowered(be happy);
-the Eb trill key & tonehole have been expertly removed and patched;
-the upgrade to a Selmer metal thumbrest (valued at $100) however, the original hook is also in the case;
-a few metal-wear patches at the thumb hook and octave rest.

The sax has some medium wear throughout the sax--miscellaneous dings, dents, silver wear--to tell you that this sax was loved and played. It may be an indicator of why it was set up to do so for previous owner(s?). The pearls also feel/show some of the heavy playing time.

REBUILD/PADS: This sax was rebuilt by a well known US repair shop a few years ago; they did an excellent job. Aside from general cleaning, polishing, and adjustments, we will look over the sax and it will leave WWS "playing excellent" for many more gigs.

CASE: a Softpack by BAM. (blue and black)
