Re: Your Experience on Selmer SBA Alto
I own a 1952 Selmer SBA. The horn is in excellent condition and was professionally relacquered and repadded a few years before it was given to me by my uncle. The action on the SBA is super like the name suggests. It plays and sounds as smooth as silk. It's not as punchy and doesn't project like my Conn 6M, Chu berry or Buescher 400. The Selmer is better for orchestral stuff, pop, and legit music, while the 6M is better for jazz and rock. I especially like the Chu for blues.
