Selmer Balanced Action Tenor Sax

Customer horn...not for sale.

The pictures are below

Serial number 235xx puts this puppy around 1937

While it may be a relacquer and the neck has some pulldown, it is still a monster!

It was in to replace abroken spring on C# and adjustments on octave mechanism.

I especially liked the way the low stack key feet hit the posts instead of the body.

Also liked how the upper pivot screws for the bell keys screw into a 'sky bridge' over the lower stack keys.

Oh yeah, there's also a picture of a key that has a needle spring attached instead of have the spring inserted in the post.
