Selmer Super Balanced Action Alto Saxophone #42,xxx - Hand-picked by famous 50's saxophone players for Al Nudo of the Kenton Orchestra!!!

Here's a really interesting piece of history!!  This Selmer Paris Super Balanced Action Alto, #42,511 comes to us from the second owner.  The first owner was Al Nudo of Pensacola, Florida.  Most of you have probably never heard of Al, but he played with the Stan Kenton Orchestra when he was 15 years old, until 1951.   

This alto was hand-picked for Al at the Selmer Paris factory by Art Pepper, Bud Shank, Lee Konitz, Bob Cooper, Zoot Sims and Lucky Thompson while the Kenton band was touring Europe, a tour that Al was not able to attend due to his schooling at the time.

In later years, Al had the alto re-lacquered and had a pick-up installed in the neck.  All the electronics that Al used are included with this alto as well.  The price on this one would be MUCH higher if it was still the original lacquer, but it's still a great horn and a bargain at this price considering  who picked it and played it!!

We will included our Sax Alley $120  "Complete Adjustment" with this alto at the quoted price, but would love to do a "Complete Mechanical Restoration" on this horn as well.  

You can purchase it with just the adjustment or we will include the CMR for only $900 if you click on the "Repair Option" when purchasing.

Dont' miss this great, vintage Selmer Paris Alto with an historical pedigree to go with it!  Be sure to check out the letter from the Director Emeritus of the Pensacolo Jazz Society backing up all this information!!!

Comes with the official letter seen in the picture, all the electronics and a Protec Case.
