Circa 1927 Vintage Adolphe Sax No.407 Alto Saxophone Outfit

Comes with what we believe is the original case.

Adolphe Sax invented the Saxophone!

It's just been serviced by John Clarke of the Woodwind Workshop in Manchester and ready to play. 

We believe this alto saxophone is circa 1927 and is as early an Henri Selmer and Adolphe Sax 'collaboration' as you will find. Adolphe Sax was at 84 Rue Myrha, Paris between circa 1907 and 1928 [Resource 1] and the saxophone is stamped 'Adolphe Sax, 84 Rue Myrha, Paris, No.407' on the bell [see pictures] but has what we believe is a 6301G Selmer serial number on the back of the body below the thumb rest .

In 1927, Selmer were making the Modele 26 and their serial numbers ran from 4451 in 1935 to 7500 by Mid 1927 [Resource 2].

Around 1928, Selmer bought the Adolphe Sax but those serial numbers range from 11951 to 18700 [Resource 3].
