This is an extremely rare and special baritone from an important moment in Selmer history. This silver beauty shipped out of the Selmer factory for Frankfurt in December of 1929 at a time when Selmer was in transition between their first significant model, the "Modèle 26" and the more modern "Super Sax" that was about to be introduced. These horns were nicknamed and marketed as "Large Bore" in the U.S.A. although there is no official Selmer name for this model. This one has a really great voice and has better than 90% of its very heavy original silver plate finish intact. It is in good playing condition (needs nothing) with a bunch of recent work done at the shop here.
