selmer series iii

  1. Necks
    Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone has tried a selmer series 3 neck on a Yamaha 82Z tenor, and what results in intonation you had. My tenor came with a G1 neck and the notes above C on the upper register are a bit sharp, the curious thing is altissimo isn't. I'm planning to get a selmer...

    I understand the Big Bs are seen as the best of the Aristocrats. Never owned one, but I just picked up my second Series III Aristocrat. I previously had a 1957 and this one dates from 1950.

    I made this little video today with an example of a Series III alto with the original neck, and with a Mark VII neck. The differences are clearly audible. I am a tenor player, and the alto hasn't come out of the case in about a year, so I am not used to either neck or biased towards either...

    Hi, I'm looking to sell the above instrument, and as I received it as a gift, have absolutely no ide how much it is worth. It must be about 7 years old, well played, but also well looked after, and apart from the odd few scratches and acidity marks on the thumb rest it's in great condition...
