Perfect for those who dream of playing a Selmer (Paris) Saxophone.

Probably the World's most popular professional saxophone, made in the most famous saxophone factory.


Description

The Super Action Series II is Selmer's most traditional saxophone with a  more laid back feel. It is a little more resistant with a tone that does not dominate, allowing the player to tailor his own sound.


This latest Jubilee model feature a rich black lacquer, a redesigned bell to bow brace & octave key, and some beautiful delicate floral engraving that wraps around the bell and incorporates the Henri Selmer signature. The gold engraving looks particularly stunning contrasted with the black lacquer & gold inner bell.


Black lacquer is more than just a colour. The sax is made from regular brass before a black lacquer is applied which is thicker than the regular gold or clear lacquer. This thicker lacquer has a greater dampening effect on the vibrations enhancing a warmer, darker tone.

Reviews

A real pleasure to play. It feels light and compact and produces a very warm and smooth tone. Playing is expressive and solid in all registers. A real workhorse, extremely versatile and free blowing, able to cope with any musical situation. Jim (Sax.co.uk)

    "your sound"
    mark
    I had a hard time choosing between the reference 54 and this one. Everyone wants a Mk6 but they are either overpriced or not in a very good condition, physically and tonewise. As many pros will say, not ALL Mk6s are exceptional even with expert regulation. I guess its something to do with the original manufacturing and setup when everything was done manually so one sax might differ from another made just after in many subtle ways. Ive had a few vintage saxes over the years and the best sounding one was a Martin Alto from 1959, but even that one had its own problems. So I wanted a new sax without the hassle of having to service, set up and regulate as often as a vintage one. Do I make sense to you? Keep reading then. I tried the Ref 54 first with an S90 180 and a V6 3 reed because Id been playing an unimpressive Mk6 with a lot of work needed on it. It did sound better and the ergos were great especially with the RSKs and the palm keys. Altissimo notes were easier to play as well. But I did not get the sound I was looking for, in fact more like a Japanese horn. I then tried the TJ RAW and the SR, both sounding more or less the same but with a big price hike with the RAW. The TJs are great and very easy to play but I wanted the Selmer quality with that special edge, a deep and dark tone that would make my wife swoon. Tried the gold lacquered S2 and S3 along with the NGO and hit that sweet spot I was looking for. Just to be sure I played all the others again, I must have been in that shop over 3 hours trying and testing, chatting with staff and jamming with the player in the adjacent cubicle. At the end of the day the S2 NGO did it for me. Its all about the sound you want to produce as a sax player, so my advice would be just that. Nothing else is as important as that sound. BTW the Yam YTS62 is a joy to play but it doesnt have a big enough sound. Good luck and choose well.
