Description

Staff Review

This sax was inspired by the old Adolphe sax instruments and to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the man himself. It gives me great pleasure to help introduce and play test an instrument that holds such significance as this one.

The composition of the body really embraces the vintage era of saxophone making but keeps all the positives and playability of the modern day sax. Each part from the brace between the body and bell, wire key guards to the pearl key rollers add to the mystique of the instrument. I also like the Nickel silver finger buttons which are again reminiscent of the old Adolph sax horns.

As well as the great cosmetics, It is clear that when Selmer designed this horn they really focused on the quality and richness of the vintage sound. The ‘Adolphe’ gives the user a free blowing experience with a perfect amount of resistance resulting in a warm, round and beautiful vintage tone. The whole thing is incredibly easy to control from top to bottom and a real joy to play. It is another step forward for Selmer in continuing in their great saxophone tradition.

Selmer Paris Description

Two hundred years ago Adolphe Sax was born. For nearly a century Henri Selmer Paris

has risen to the challenge of this great inventor – to adapt and evolve the saxophone for the modern day – now introducing the LIMITED EDITION ALTO SAX.

A perfect synthesis of the multiple sound possibilities and varieties of timbre that the saxophone can offer. With this instrument Henri Selmer Paris reaffirms their mastery of traditional instrument making combined with an inventive force rooted in modernity, continuing along the path of the work of Adolphe Sax.

An exceptional saxophone, the LIMITED EDITION ALTO SAX makes use of the past to prepare for the future, always in tune with the present.

This new model is exclusively sold in outfit with its limited edition mouthpiece, case, grenadilla wood plug and the « Sax Revolutions » DVD.

I was staggered by how well balanced the big fat sound was combined with the powerful projection it gives you. Also, I found it very free blow…
