selmer series ii

  1. Selmer (Paris)
    Hey guys :) Sorry in advanced if this becomes long... After playing my series II for 7 years, I've found that it has a stuffy, generic quality to the sound. I didn't notice this much in high school (I mean, any professional horn was amazing compared to my student horn :P), but over the years...

    Hi everyone! :) I'm an Alto player and I plan to buy an upgrade of sax. I've chosen Selmer SA80 Series II Jubilee and I'm confused about the finish/plating I should choose for the sound that I want. I'm a huge smooth jazz fan and I'm inspired by the sound of Gerald Albright, David Sanborn...

  7. Buescher
    Did a concert/clinic at a high school yesterday, and afterwards one of the alto students brought out his horn for me to try: a silver-plated "The Buescher" True Tone (I think the serial was 151xxx, which Saxpics says makes it a Series II...), and definitely an early ('20s era?) horn: no front-F...
