All the way down.

Once a novelty, more or less a product of instrument manufacturing companies doing it 'because we can,' the bass saxophone has been gaining a legitimacy that goes beyond conspicuous 'how low can you go' panagyrics. The Model 56 bass saxophone from Selmer reflects the attention to detail, the quality and the obsession with great saxophone sound that defines the Selmer legacy.

With the evolution of repertoires, instruments of the outer ranges are being increasingly asked for. The "Super Action 80 Series II" bass saxophone is particularly adapted to this new trend: its design and its acoustic features allow it to be more than just a support instrument. The Series II sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, bass and baritone saxophones have been the professional choice for a generation and continue to be the most popular professional saxophone in the world. The reasons are clear: they all possess a flexible but centered tone that is natural in almost any playing situation.

Yellow brass body tubes and keys resonate across the entire timbre spectrum: full-ribbed construction enhances their durability. The Series' superior intonation characteristics make these saxophone a natural choice for any professional or those who aspire to be.
