These are great for kids. The name brand, nickel plated keys (stronger), and easy ergos. I got this one and suspect it was a floor model or unsold inventory because it it "like new" condition. It would seem wrong to turn this beauty into a rental, so I hope had it off to your child who will keep it nice.
Comes with original case, and a mouthpiece. I'll see if I can help with any other accessories too.
"The Selmer AS500 provides a great addition to the array of student through professional model saxophones available from Selmer. Beginning musicians and their teachers will notice the many design features that ensure a comfortable playing position for young hands. Features such as the adjustable right hand thumb rest and the linear design of the left and right hand key sections will help students get off to a great start. Young performers will value the high F# key that extends the range of the saxophone to facilitate performance of advanced literature. Parents will appreciate the durability of the nickel-plated key mechanism and the addition of a support guide to protect the vulnerable right-hand trill key hinge rods from damage. The innovative change of lowering the octave key pin flush with the top of the neck receiver will protect it from damage, especially when students forget to use the end plug. These are just a few of the special design features that establish the Selmer AS500 Eb Alto Saxophone as a noteworthy addition to the Selmer family of high quality instruments.
Nickel-plated keys, a high F# key, left- and right-hand section-adjusting screws, an engraved bell, clear lacquer finish over brass, rocking table key mechanism with articulated C# adjusting screw, an adjustable right-hand thumb rest."
