These soprano, alto, tenor and baritone models are capturing the interest of today’s upcoming artists and delivering a modern French sound at an exceptional price. The STS280RS is identical to the STS280R, except that the silver lacquer provides a unique look and brighter tone. These instruments incorporate the "right" features, resulting in instruments that are lighter in weight and deliver all the performance demanded by today’s top players. The acoustic response of Selmer LaVoix II saxophones is quick and fluid through all registers and the neck is specially designed with slight resistance. This combination provides for superior response, and teachers also prefer it for embouchure and air stream development. Key design is compact with professional spring tension for quicker facility. Other features include a traditional bell flare, high F# (G on soprano), mini-rib construction (except soprano), multiple adjusting screws, and treated leather pads. The instruments feature Selmer USA mouthpieces that help to create an even tone, excellent response and steady intonation. New lighter weight cases thoroughly protect the instruments and offer excellent storage capacity. All models feature fine hand engraving on their bodies and bells.
In 1885 following graduation from the Conservatoire de Paris, Henri Selmer began making reeds, mouthpieces, and clarinets in Paris. In 1898, Henri’s brother, Alexandre left for the US and began selling clarinets as he toured with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. These instruments would gain in popularity in Europe and America, winning awards at the 1900 Paris Exhibition and in 1904 St Louis World’s Fair. In 1905, Henri took over the Barbier Company, a flute maker in Paris.
Today, Selmer Paris is a leading manufacturer and the choice instrument of clarinet and saxophone professionals around the world. The instruments continue to be hand-crafted in Paris with the fourth generation of Selmer family members leading the company.
