The Selmer SAS411 intermediate alto saxophone is one of the top-performing saxophones in the world, available at a great price point, and designed after the professional line of Selmer Paris saxophones. The SAS411 saxophone has incredible tonal complexity and features a post to rib to body construction from premium yellow brass. This, combined with a hand-adjusted neck, Pisoni Pro pads, and a one-piece, hand-hammered bell create a tone that is not only the best in its class but a sound that outperforms many of its competitors.
The 411 series saxophones come in 4 beautiful options; gold lacquer, silver plate, black nickel, and copper (this features clear lacquer with a copper alloy neck and body tube). These four beautiful finishes are ornamented with newly designed hand engraving based on the iconic Selmer Paris Mark VI American artwork from Elkhart, Indiana. To protect this instrument when not in use it comes with a premium ballistic nylon case featuring comfortable backpack straps, a spacious accessories compartment, durable handles, and an outer pocket to store sheet music.
Several upgrades went into the development of this new intermediate alto saxophone, including a proprietary 3-phase tone hole leveling process which guarantees precisely level tone holes for long-lasting pad seating and stability. The blue steel needle springs create a light and fast key action for which Selmer is known, an adjustable thumb rest, and superior ergonomics provide everything needed for fast and demanding technical passages. Additionally, every Selmer saxophone is professionally set up, play-tested, and optimally adjusted at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Center located in Elkhart, Indiana.
