Designed from the artisan Selmer Paris saxophones, the Selmer SAS201 is carefully crafted with the beginning student in mind. The neck, tone hole system, and bore design provide superb intonation and ease of flexibility with a post to body construction to facilitate quick response without sacrificing the iconic Selmer sound. With a range to high F♯, the SAS201 saxophone features power-forged single-arm keys and the recognizable Selmer tri-point bell brace to ensure consistent and reliable seating of the newly implemented, acoustically enhancing Pisoni leather pads.
Improvements include the palm key placement and use of carefully adjusted blue steel needle springs establishing a light and fast key action iconic to the Selmer brand. Additionally, a 3-phase tone hole leveling process guarantees precisely level tone holes for long-lasting pad seating and stability. Every Selmer saxophone is professionally set up, play-tested, and optimally adjusted at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Factory located in Elkhart, Indiana.
