A pure, clean sound with a bit more power and edge than your average
bari, this one could easily fit into almost any musical context.






The SERIES III saxophone goes on writing the story of the Selmer Sound :
free and centered, the instrument offers excellent playability. It
responds to the slightest breath or tongue modulation so that you can
really express your personality. Some new features such as the double C#
mechanism help create stable overall tuning and a well-balanced high
register.






WHAT WE SAY - The Series 3 is a fantastic instrument. It is so
easy to play and really sings!! You can just relax into this instrument
and like a good sports car almost drives itself!!! All the keys are in
the right place and it sits very comfortably in the hands. Like the
Series 2 it is a solid instrument and projection is wonderful. If you
want a sax at this price then the Series 3 is the one!






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.






In celebration of 125 years of the famous Paris factory Selmer have
issued some stunning new models. These Jubilee saxes feature a rich gold
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.

Review



What a delight to play! From the moment I set air down this beast I knew
I was dealing with a corker! It has that typical depth of tone that I
associate with Selmer instruments, but more than that there is a
smoothness and fluidity on hand, especially when skipping between
registers – always an important plus point when dealing with baritone
saxophones. Typical of Series III models, I find the tone to be more
resonant than on the Series II – this can useful for more modern styles
of music (pop/rock/funk/R&B etc) but, conversely, it will work for
classical music so long as the correct choice of mouthpiece is used.






The intonation is spot-on, and the ergonomics feel extremely
comfortable, as you would expect for an instrument of this value! The
engraving is much more involved than on the Series II equivalent,
including an engraved section up around the bow section. The sax also
benefits from an integrated floor peg that attaches to the bell. If you
don’t want to make use of it, don’t worry – it easily detaches, leaving
two tidy little nubs that are permanently attached to the
bell…altogether, a beauty of a sax!



fields of music. A pure, clean sound with a bit more power and edge than
your average bari, this one could easily fit into almost any musical
context. Exceptional quality engraving too... Jim@sax.co.uk









Jubilee Edition



-In the French jeweller’s tradition, the new engraving, thinner thanks
to an outline technique, decorates the bell and the bow, doubled on the
ring by the original signature of the Founder.






- A new lacquer definition optimizes the quality of the play of light
through shades of “gold” tone in the instrument’s reflection.






- The neck key is redesigned through a lighter mechanism and subtly
thinner outlines, thus becoming more elegant.






- In order to fulfil this new visual balance, the geometry of the “S”
neck is imperceptibly modernized on a deep blue background even more
recognizable.






- In keeping with a know-how of purely French manufacture, Selmer Paris
signs its new “Series II” and “Series III” ranges with the seal of the
essence of its difference.






Selmer Paris Saxophones



Since the creation of the Series 22 in 1921, Henri Selmer Paris has been
one of the world's finest manufacturers of professional-level
saxophones. Musicians who have performed on Selmer saxophones include
John Coltrane, Michael Brecker, Rickey Ford, Ron Blake and Stan Getz.






Every sax players dream...a Selmer sax handmade in Paris. Instruments
with class and character (and not a bad investment if you look at the
second hand prices). Selmer (Paris) are generally regarded as the home
of the saxophone having bought the original factory from Adolphe Sax.
Most sax players consider the legendary Selmer Mark 6 as the best ever
made. If you don't want to spend years and a great deal of money
searching for a good Mark 6 then treat yourself to a new Reference sax!
