Value For Money : Excellent
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.
