I played them both side by side, along with a Hummingbird. I actually preferred the sound of the La Vie to the Hummingbird, but the keywork felt soft (perhaps not to a kid though). I believe the La Voix is made in Taiwan and the La Vie in China. The La Vie also has some touches that you see on other current "designer" saxophones. I still think both the La Voix and La Vie are overpriced however; and it's solely due to the Selmer name on the bell. Similar (if not exact) copies are probably being sold for much, much less under other brand names. Trick is finding them... should these horns float your boat.ChuBerry47 said:Is there a difference between the La Vie and the La Voix?
