A great choice for advancing and professional sax players.

The Conn-Selmer Premiere PTS-380V is a saxophone with a respected combined pedigree: Conn & Selmer have been two of the most respected brands for over 100 years!


Described by Courtney Pine as a modern day classic.


Description:

One of our favourite brands here at Sax.co, the Conn-Selmer saxophones feature good design, excellent build quality and proven reliability across the range.


This Premiere PTS-380V has the refined design, build quality and tone more usually associated with more expensive "professional" instruments. Key features include a newly designed neck allowing responsive airflow through the body and an ergonomic key design that keeps the hands closer to the body tube. This saxophone responds to your ideas faster!


The inclusion of a genuine Rousseau ebonite (hard rubber) mouthpiece is a really nice bonus.

Reviews:

When customers come into the shop the first thing which they'll notice about any instrument is how it looks. Sometimes our quirkier saxophones can win the heart of those searching for the best sound available. The Conn-Selmer Premiere is one of these; we've all been struck by how full, sweet and room filling the sound that comes out of this horn can be. The strong materials vibrate with pleasure under the fingers giving a nice free blowing experience with little resistance resulting in a round and beautiful sound. The whole thing is incredibly easy to control from top to bottom. To conclude, this saxophone reminds me some of the most popular vintage Selmer horns. A good build, a great sound for such an amazing value, I would definitely go for the sound. -  JC (Sax.co.uk)


The best modern tenor saxophone that I have ever played! Built with an old school heart and with many modern day features not only for an older generation but also for the now and generations to come - A MODERN DAY CLASSIC!. - Courtney Pine

    "Unexpected!!!"
    Samuel Marlieri
    Hi there! Just went in the shop today, looking for some used Mark VI tenor and though there wasnt any, one of the shops assistants ( i think his name was J.C. ,sorry mate you were very kind to me...) gave me this very saxophone to try, along with some other models and brands. Needles to say i was kinda reluctant at first because of the unfortunate start with the mark VI but, hey, i was in the mood so... As soon as i grabbed it the weight felt right and not too light as always. The metal compound wasnt that "cheap" either (remember to never compare anything else to mark VIs... Youll end disappointed all the time...) but it hit the spot when i put my hands on the keys. It was VERY similar to a mark VI even where the pearl button are encased in the metal socket, over the pad. Very nice feeling indeed. F

    "UNEXPECTED!!!"
    Samuel "Sam" Marlieri
    I went today in the shop (May, 13th) looking for a Tenor Selmer Mark VI but the kind and friendly JC told me that there werent any since February... I was almost done, beside take a look around when JC asked me if i wanted to try some other saxophones and brands as well. Though i was kinda reluctant at first i decided to give it a try because, hey... I was in the mood, so... After some saxophonists chit chat (the usual...) he ended up bringing me this very saxophone (Conn-Selmer Premiere PTS380V) along with some other ones. Indeed he wanted me to try some different options and it felt like talking to an old friend. As soon as i get in the booth, i picked up the instrument and the weight was instantly pleasant, not the usual lightness of the new saxophones around in these last 20 years. But this was nothing compared to the feeling under my fingers. Really, really unexpected!!!! The closest thing to a mark VI i ever tried. The keys and the mechanics works very well, with a quick response on faster fingerings and big intervals exercises. I still dont understand why they put a double arm lever in some of the lower keys, but i can live with that... Or cut them away!!!! Playing low Bb is never so easy on tenor but not today. Very few saxophones can do that and with so little breath (another Mark VI known feature when in good condition). Id personally like to make some little adjustments in order to suit my hands and to increase intonation (already incredible) and evenness between octaves. Although i was expecting a totally dark sound, again i was surprised to find that i could shape the sound i wanted with very little work. Jazz, Fusion, Soul, i found everything at hands as soon as i wanted. The setup was a Dukoff D9* metal, Vandoren Java Red
