Selmer Cigar Cutter Alto Sax and Clarinet–#15292/K5359

$4,795.00

Made in 1932 by Selmer Paris, the “Cigar Cutter” saxophones are officially part of the Selmer Super Sax range but were named because of their uniquely designed octave mechanism that resembled a cigar cutter. This saxophone was the start of what later became the hugely popular Super Balanced Action by Selmer, and they based the bore design and tonal qualities of the Super Balanced Action on the “Cigar Cutter”. This alto sax has a bold and rich sound, which was engineered in response to the American saxophones that gained popularity in the 1920’s.
