This used alto saxophone from ~1950 has been fully repaired and is ready to live up to its’ historic reputation.
This saxophone, also known by the name “Super Balanced”, is to some extent a transitional instrument falling between the “Balanced Action” and “Mark VI”. In contrast to “Balanced Action”, it featured a removable bow, which allowed for much easier maintenance. The body and bow were fitted together with the help of a collar maintained by two screws, while the bell remained welded on the bow. The principal development related to the ergonomics of the keywork, which was rearranged to enhance playing comfort.
