***Clean sax - Great pads - New Case***
A beloved SML GM(Gold Medal) 1 era tenor with all the features that are loved and sought. It is in great condition to match. These are a French brand with the tone of an American sax - Conn+King+Martin+Keilwerth(German). It has the huge, fat, SML tone during some of their best years. Original Lacquer finish at 97%. These are in the top 3 for BOLDEST tones and harmonics!
It is a very clean, original finish sax with very mild evidence of use. I see two small ding/dents on the lower bow, tiny dimples on a side of the neck, and a few scuffs on from a sax stand(?) on the bell(front only). I see no resolders! There is an added octave thumb rest add-on. This is a well-done, and wise add-on for the player! (I know, as an SML owner and lover.)
CASE: It arrived with a non-original wrap case. However, this one is so nice and I want you to keep it nice so I want to include a new, upgrade to a Protec XL . If you don't want it, we can adjust the price a little lower and it can ship in the simple wrap case.
Don't forget all the SML features like screw adjustments and "Articulated G# on/off lever" too. These do have a longer neck for positioning and a slight upward angle; both normal on this model.
PADS: It has newer, tan pads with modern selmer-style resos(domed metal with rivet). They show mild use but have many many years of life left.
