Selmer Paris Series lll Jubilee Alto Sax Gold Lacquer Engraved GG
The Selmer Paris Series III Alto Saxophone was designed for the player who values projection and immediate response above all else. Using a slightly tighter bore and lighter weight “mini-rib” construction, the Series III produces an amazingly brilliant tone. While the sound of the Series III is more brilliant than other Selmer models, the Series III still maintains the iconic “Selmer Sound” that Selmer is known for!
The Series III alto saxophones were released in the late 90’s to offer a Selmer that was more focused, responsive and brilliant than previous Selmer models. The end result is a horn that is articulate and precise with impeccable intonation & tonal clarity.
The Jubilee models will be the first to feature the new redesigned neck octave key. The key has been redesigned to be lighter in weight thus improving vibration and responsiveness throughout the horn, but specifically in the altissimo of the sax. They also changed the mounting mechanism design on the Jubilee models that results in a much more stable and secure fitting octave key. The neck logo of the Selmer “S” has been modernized with a deeper blue background.
