Expertly engineered to not only sound fantastic but also to stand up to the worst a "real" band room situation can present, the American made Selmer 1430LP has been the first choice of music educators for generations.  

The body tube of the Selmer 1430LP is made from our famous Selmer Resonite™ composite. This highly resonant material is reamed, drilled, and undercut by digitally calibrated and computer-controlled machinery in Elkhart, Indiana to ensure ideal response and excellent intonation. 

Easier to use, the single piece body and low Eb on the 1430LP body tube mean no keys extended over joints. The unique post and plate key mounting make for consistent "touch" and high quality Music Medic pads ensure a good seal every time. 

Expertly designed and manufactured to last for decades, the Selmer 1430LP is the foundation of your band program's woodwind sound.  



  • Selmer Resonite™ Body:  An amazing wood analog.  Excellent sound quality and projection.  
  • Single Piece Body Design: Foregoes the potential hazards of daily assembly
  • Low E♭ On Body: Removed the need for a fragile bridge key from body to bell
  • Power Forged Nickel Silver Keys: Extremely strong and hold regulation longer
