"The Seles Axos saxophone is made in the Henri Selmer Paris factory located in Mantes-la-Ville, France, in the same factory as all other models since 1922. Like all top-of-the-range Henri Selmer Paris instruments, this model continues the tradition of craftsmanship manufacturing integrating new industrial techniques.
Axos is made with the same quality metals as the other Henri Selmer Paris saxophones. The way in which the strategic part of the saxophone, the bore, is treated in our metal workshops is as rigorous as the treatment of the professional models. This guarantees that the Henri Selmer Paris sound identity is found as well on the Axos, a delicate balance between rich harmonics and roundness of sound.
Aiming to make quality instruments available to a greater number of musicians, Axos provides playing comfort with its specially adapted keywork as well as great mechanical reliability.
The Axos brings with it the heritage of over a century of history and technical knowledge from Henri Selmer Paris, the world leader in saxophone design and production."
This Selmer-Paris 52AXOS alto saxophone was brought to us after only a few years of use, and it looks like its previous owner maintained it very well. There is evidence that this saxophone was used, but very little. Some very mild lacquer wear can be found on the pad guards on the bow and also on the left-hand palm keys, and some light scuffing on the left side of the bell exterior (very common). Some faint scratches can be noticed on the bell's inner rim as well, if you look hard enough.
Slight cosmetic blemishes aside, this horn is an excellent player! Functionally, it's in just as good of shape as it is cosmetically. Our professional woodwind technician replaced the instrument's neck cord, and made a few adjustments to the keywork to ensure perfect playability. No pads needed to be replaced, though the Eb and F# pads were replaced during a previous service before it came to us for sale.
The original case and mouthpiece are in equally great condition, and are included with this saxophone. It's a great outfit, and it's a great deal! Stop by soon to check it out before someone beats you to it!
