Get a Popular Instrument with the Selmer Paris Series II Model 56 Bass Saxophone Outfit - Clear Lacquered

With the evolution of repertoires, instruments of the outer ranges are being increasingly asked for. The “Super Action 80 Series II” bass saxophone is particularly adapted to this new trend: its design and its acoustic features allow it to be more than just a support instrument. The Series II sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, bass and baritone saxophones have been the professional choice for a generation and continue to be the most popular professional saxophone in the world. The reasons are clear: they all possess a flexible but centered tone that is natural in almost any playing situation. Yellow brass body tubes and keys resonate across the entire timbre spectrum: full-ribbed construction enhances their durability. The Series’ superior intonation characteristics make these saxophone a natural choice for any professional or those who aspire to be.
