Find a Dealer
The Selmer SBS411 intermediate saxophone is without a doubt one of the top performing saxophones in the world. Though available at an intermediate price point, it performs at a professional level and is designed after the professional line of Selmer Paris saxophones. The SBS411 saxophone has an incredible tonal complexity that is carefully balanced with ease of response and highlighted by its professional features.
The SBS411 saxophone features a post to rib to body construction. The keywork is made of premium power forged brass and the body is made of rose-brass, which contains a higher percentage of copper. This, combined with a professionally designed and hand-adjusted neck and a one-piece, hand-hammered bell creates a tone that is not only the best in its class but outperforms many competitors’ professional line instruments. This tone is further enhanced by the combination of Pisoni Pro pads, traditional Selmer metal resonators, and a carefully designed, hard rubber Selmer mouthpiece to create the perfect balance between ease of response and complexity of tone.
The durable construction of this saxophone is highlighted by its power forged key work to ensure consistent and reliable seating of the pads. Additionally, the post to rib to body construction and iconic Selmer tri-point bell brace create a strong foundation for the key mechanism, keeping the key work in optimal adjustment. Beyond this, the bell keys have double arm bracing for further stability of the bell keys. The blue steel needle springs are carefully adjusted to strict, professional tolerances to create the light and fast key action for which Selmer is known. This great key action, an adjustable metal thumb rest, and superb ergonomics provide everything needed for fast and demanding technical passages.
The 411 series intermediate baritone saxophones come ornamented with newly designed hand engraving that is based on the iconic Selmer Paris Mark VI American engraving that was designed and hand engraved in Elkhart, Indiana. This iconic design references the legendary Selmer saxophones of the past and underscores the lineage, design, and craftsmanship of this instrument. To protect the instrument when not in use it comes with a premium and sturdy ABS protective case that comes with wheels and sturdy handles.
