Selmer Alto Série 2
It's been ages since I have my SerieII and plays like the first day;)

Selmer is a great brand of saxophone and SerieII quickly became a classic in schools. Personally I love his touch, and fluidity of play
Unfortunately I can give you comparisons, I could not try many Saxophones as mine suited me.

I do not know either how prices have evolved with the release of SerieIII.
Nevertheless there is still a reference, and a saxophone premium.
Mine has almost 10 years and I still serves as a directory especially for beaucoupet Jazz / Funk at the time it cost nine 15000F (2000 €)

I would put 9 / 10, I have no point of comparison, but I really do not see what I can blame him ... it is said in some large schools that some notes are not entirely fair, it must be a good musician to perceive it, and when you're a good musician can be corrected easily.

Selmer Alto Série 2
Saxophone versatile enough, at the top racing since its release, it is like any investment Selmer trs) long term! Trs apprci still in the middle of classic & contemporary sax (even if + in + musicians pass SIII), it is - in - at the Jazz and amplified music, to the diversity and multiplicity of outputs from birth MODELS (Keilwerth, REFERENCE, B & S etc ...). Even when it is a good challenger trs if old enough and well opened by use rgulire (as las MARK VI and VII, as well as Super Action 80 today). A SSAI hsitation no if the opportunity arises Submitted.
Instrument homogne (but - the SIII), flexible, with a "good" accuracy of intonation (Mdium correct, and the extreme), with a broad and serious gnreu, and treble slightly open (wider than the head + SIII) and its SELMER, although full-bodied. One of his strengths is princial they are correctable (in accuracy) even in large card tempratures (without EXAGRES: + or - 5 or 6 degrees around 20), l or its competitors (especially Yamaha) become ingrables under conditions beyond 20.
Their weak point is definitely the problem rcurent on all Selmer: the varnish which prides itself quickly. Nothing to do with the first study of Yanagisawa, but be careful.
The Japanese have for them an easy task lgrement suprieure and a clean finish (and are almost at the Selmer today, which have also to be worried!) .
Used for more than 10 years before moving to SIII. At the price: Professional instrument, excellent qualitprix (used again in 1500, new: 2500 approx.)
The rolls of saxes, A (future!) legends.

Selmer Alto Série 2

I 'used for almost 10 years this MODEL In Selmer saxophone, saxophone this super action 80 SERIES II, for me, this is THE REFERENCE in terms of acoustics, Sonora to touch. I tried various MODELS, instruments Yamaha, Yanagisawa, Jupiter (and yes ...) through the Spanish brands rcente (Gold) not well distributed in France.
Voila months 4 months I change my hardware and my choice was naturally directed to the Selmer saxophone SERIES II. Yet it's not for lack of trying other models of Selmer, the partiuculirement SrieIII but also the brand new saxophone REFERENCE ... It is true, the varnish is often Selmer point the finger, but it is the same for all manufacturers. Personally, I found the trick wipe off the instrument using APRS chauqe! it sounds a little rdibitoire, but it is the insurance to keep a perfect polish!
Its main competitor, none other than the Selmer SERIES III, is - in my opinion - far from the sound quality of the SERIES II.
Really, I do not regret my choice, Selmer SERIES II, for me it's the saxophone, the only one who can restore what our ears Its so enjoyable! Pleasure!

Selmer Alto Série 2
I play on my SERIES II for 4 good years now, APRS staying 7 or 8 years of study on a yamaha ... What was my surprise, the very first time I tried a SERIES II, when the sound that came out of pure silent, round .. saxophone sound worthy of the name! This saxophone is trs versatile possde indniable quality sound, and little more of mine is burning on the roof However, t it is true that certain notes out less and less accurate than the others, but this is corrected aisment!
Level qualitprix this report is correct ... Previous by selling my sax I'm shooting for a 1500 SERIES II with nine serious!
And it is on the exprience I would do with that choice, even if I'm quite tempted by the soprano and tnor ..

I put my 9 / 10, he MRIT!
