I've had this Selmer Serie 2 tenor for few years now. Although I mainly play the alto but at the moment I'm practicing my tenor more. The notes don't "lock in" with that tenor. Playing that tenor feels like I'm bending a rubber band. My previous tenor, a YTS-23, had very locked-in notes and the intonation was spot-on. I can play with good intonation with the Selmer but it requires much more work (=listening). My Selmer alto (a MkVi) also has locked-in tones.

I've even tried a Ref54 neck on the Serie II tenor and no difference at all. Is this a "feature" of the Serie II tenor or is it badly set-up or what?
