Born in 1932 in the SELMER workshops in Mantes-la-Ville, this saxophone was first sold to a London musician before leaving for new adventures in Sri Lanka.
Found a few years ago abandoned in an attic, the instrument was given to our technician Martin Deutsch.
Complete disassembling, repair of defective parts, levelling of the tone holes and keys, re-stamping, replacement of mother-of-pearl and springs... For six days, Martin restored the instrument while keeping its identity as a Cigar Cutter.
Following this rebirth and thanks to the REWIND project, the instrument is now ready to continue its history with a new owner.
Launched by Henri SELMER Paris in 2021, REWIND.fr is the reference platform for second-hand SELMER instruments. Vintage or recent, these instruments are revised by our best craftspeople and then offered for sale on our site to make the joy of musicians...
