I’ve had the recent opportunity to work on two saxophones for some great players in “Pershing’s Own” Army Band. The first one, a Silver-plated Selmer Super Action 80 Series II Alto, came in for a complete rebuild. This included leveling the tone holes, repairing dent work, swedging the keys, replacing pads and corks, and refitting the neck tenon.
The second one was a Selmer Super Action 80 Series II Baritone Sax. It had a severe bend in the body and needed a total work-over. It’s always great to work on quality instruments that are being played by professionals who appreciate the outcome.
