« Sound very rich »Published on 11/27/10 at 11:09
For a year and a half.
"What thing do you like most/least about it?
The sound! the sound is very full, very rich, you'd sometimes almost hear a small tenor ...
The color is beautiful (a little brassy).
-Did you try many other models before getting this one?
Series II and III mainly.
The reference allows to combine the technical quality of current selmers with a grain of sound, full sound.
-What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Nine is still VERY expensive (more than 4000 € I think), but on occasion they are a good value for money.
I got it as new, with a beak SR Tech (price 300 €) and a house in leather for 2800 € all.
-Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
For a saxophone factory recently, and if I can afford it, yes.
Note: I finally switched to saxophone King Zephyr II for his "old", not found on saxophones today, but the reference remains still a very high end product.
