- in stock
These professional Selmer USA altos have been assigned to Sax.co.uk in an exclusive deal! They are currently being offered on an astounding Special Offer basis as part of this promotion!
This sax carries the 'Special Offer' tag as it has a small discolouration on a small area of lacquer, around the G# key, barely visible unless you were looking for it!
Ideal for students & advancing players looking for a better saxophone.
The La Vie AS240 by Selmer (USA) is a saxophone that subtly stands out from the crowd in looks and features.
One of our favourites in it's class here at Sax.co, the La Vie is a sax with extra charisma or character - call it what you will, we like the La Vie. It plays beautifully, sounds good, looks a bit special and even has a high G key!
Recommended price £1800 and earmarked to be discontinued as they were just getting too expensive to produce. That was until we stepped in with a special deal for the UK! Now available again as a low volume production run exclusively from Sax.co.uk. If you want to upgrade your beginner's sax, get started on an exceptional first sax or buy a back-up sax - you won't find a better horn for the price.
The inclusion of a genuine Rousseau ebonite (hard rubber) mouthpiece is a huge bonus! Most student saxes are supplied with the least expensive plastic mouthpiece that soon needs upgrading. The Rousseau mouthpiece will assist you through the more awkward beginning stages and take you and your playing onto a higher level.

The Selmer ‘La Vie’ range hails from the American Conn connection and is a superb example of quality Taiwanese workmanship. OK, this isn’t a Parisian peach, but it does have a lot to shout about! Our samples had a very solid feel and were well built with superb attention to detail. The key
action on both instruments was very positive with firm springing and no “clanking"........ Both the AS250 and AS240 had good intonation and were easy to play........the red brass AS250 shone like a beacon, with a more flexible sound and great dynamics right through the range from pianissimo to fortissimo - there was generally a lot more guts to this instrument – a true jazzer!...... - Jazzwise.com
