Current New Selmer Pricing

I'm thinking about updating my professional sax price list, which I last updated seven years ago. Because it's low hanging fruit, I did Selmer first. The below items are in the form of:

Model's Website(s)
Pitch: $Price (US) - website I went to

Oddly, Kessler doesn't have the 40 Series tenor sax (TS44) listed on their website. I got a price through Amazon.

Here's a screenshot of the Selmer prices I listed in 2009. You can go to the original thread listed in the first post for more.

This is the inflation calculator I generally use.

As an example, the Super 80 Serie II Eb alto was $4,199 in 2009. That's $4,717 in 2016 dollars. The 2016 price of a new S80 is $5,599 (note that the new S80 has different lacquer). The highest eBay sold auction for a Super 80 Serie II alto was $4,400. Eyeballing the sold horns, I'd say that the average is around $2,700. What does this tell you? Well, your horn depreciates the second after you buy it and new horns are only getting more expensive.
