Good morning all,

I am putting my Selmer Series 3 Alto (clear lacquered, unengraved) up for sale. This is not a happy day for me, but a necessary one. I am currently on a round-the-world trip and cash is running extremely low. However, I have come to the realisation that things are more readily replaceable than experiences. Also, I have my tenor sax with me, so will not be completely musically bereft. So, as my alto sits home gathering dust, I have decided to pass it on to a good home where someone will cherish it as it deserves to be loved.

I have been a member of this forum for a little while, have both bought and sold things here, so please ask around if you would like references. The sax was bought new in Geneva where I used to live in 2006, please check my previous postings for some postings of when I bought it (basically, it's not an eBay purchase and turnaround)

The package for sale

1 x Selmer Paris S80, Series 3 Alto in clear lacquer/unengraged in v.good condition. No dings, no dents, signs of light/normal use

1 x Selmer Lite Case (Charcoal Grey/Black) with detatchable backpack straps

1 x Jody Jazz ESP 7 Mouthpiece with spoiler + Rovner Ligature

1 x Meyer Ebonite 6 Mouthpiece with BG Tradition Ligature

The price for the lot: £1750.00 + PP

(If you are wondering how much it costs to get the lot new, from saxophones.co.uk, this is what it would set you back -
  • Selmer S3 Alto: £3044.00 (inc VAT)
  • Selmer Lite Case: £265 (inc VAT)
  • Jody Jazz ESP 7 Alto: £285.00 (inc VAT)
  • Meyer Ebonite 6 Alto: £126 (inc VAT)
  • Rovner Eddie Daniels: £47 (inc VAT)
  • BG Tradition Ligature: £45 (inc VAT)

Photos of all items available on request, donation to Pete's Charity goes without saying.

I will endeavour to answer all questions, queries and comments on a daily basis, but in the interests of being fair, it is a first-come, first served thing.

Cheers everyone

FINAL PRICE - Get that Sax upgrade to a Selmer Paris

Hi there folks,

I am now dropping the price for the last time in recognition of the global financial crisis and people's need to tighten belts...so an offer that should be difficult to refuse.

Final Price: £1500 + postage and packing.

If only I had the cash! It's a great shame you are in so much of a rush as I know from current experience it can take months to sell a sax at a fair/good price. Best of wishes.

Hi there Paul,

Unfortunately, the saxophone is no longer available. I weathered the (personal) financial crisis that inspired the post and I think by now it may have forgiven me for putting it up for sale in the first place.

Sorry!

Sorry!
It`ll get over it, especially since you clearly didn`t really want to! Glad you got sorted.
All the best.....Paul
