Selmer Prelude Tenor Sax TS711 - Used
This used student horn is in fantastic condition! It appears to have hardly been used. The only sign of use is a very minor scratch on the lacquer in the area of the strap ring. Other than that? It, and its original case, look like we just unpacked it from Conn-Selmer.
In less than 2 years, this horn will have paid for itself in rental cost savings. It is also less than 1/2 the price of a new TS711, which currently sell for around $1790 at authorized Conn-Selmer dealers.
If you are the parent of band student who is serious about tenor sax, or your child plans to stick with the instrument for more than a year, how can you go wrong?
