This is a later Buffet Dynaction alto sax from 1955, made in Paris, France.
Buffet Dynactions are hugely underrated and competed very favourably with the "other" French sax - the Selmer MKVI. At the time they were actually more expensive and successfully continued production (few changes with the Super Dynaction) until 1975ish! Very fast, slick key alignment - maybe not quite as slick as the MKVI but certainly very close with a lighter action - these models can really play. Tonewise the Buffet is a more lush, darker sound than the Selmer MKVI (more similar to a Selmer SBA) which is a little more punchy.
It has been fully stripped, washed and professionally rebuilt and plays perfectly - super quiet, slick action. It is finished in the original silver plate in very nice condition (over 90% intact). This is not 100% perfect showroom closet horn and has been played but is in very, very nice condition - no dents, bad repairs etc.
TONE is dark & sweet - a beautiful very individual sound! Tuning is great, action is very light and quick with a very "modern" feel (if you're worried about vintage saxes feeling hard or awkward under the fingers, this isn't - it feels like a regular modern sax) - a really interesting and dynamic sax to play with lots of colour!
Overall a very nice, super playing, vintage, French, classic horn with all the work done - these things are increasing in value every year and getting harder to find and a fraction of the price of the "other" french sax!!
Comes complete with the original, beautiful tan, leather bound case in lovely, clean condition and of course our famous 12 month warranty!
