Saxophone Ténor Selmer Super Balance Action 47.xxx 1951
The Super Balanced Action was introduced in 1946 and featured slightly changed neck and bore proportions,
refined ergonomics, the "Remov-a-Bell" seal which made it easier for repairmen to have access to the bell in order to fix and remove dents and other damage to the bell.
The tone holes were also offset in a more radial fashion, whereas earlier BA's were more or less in a straight line, like other saxophones.
