The Henri Selmer company of Paris has introduced the third issue of its limited edition Bird Series of professional saxophones. This special 2007 issue features exquisite engraving that highlights the Flamingo of Africa.
The latest Selmer Paris "bird" alto saxophone models are based on the popular Reference 54 Series saxophones, capturing the essence of the famous Mark VI instruments made in the 1950s and 1960s. The tenor is based on the Reference 36 Series, in the tradition of the "Balanced Action" manufactured beginning in 1936. There will be three versions of the 2007 Flamingo saxophones.
Selmer Paris will produce 110 of the standard edition flamingo alto saxophones for the Americas. The standard flamingo sax will also feature no high F# key, deluxe hand engraving on the bell, along with a unique case.
This latest release is the third in a five-year adventure honoring each of the continents by depicting a native bird in highly detailed hand crafted engraving on its new Reference Series saxophones. Last year's edition featured the Kookaburra bird of Australia. Previously the Hummingbird of the North American continent was honored.
Unique bore designs and high copper content in the brass give these Selmer Paris saxophones an amazing traditional sound. The use of small rib plates create quick response. Blued needle springs provide quick, precise action while adjustable right hand thumb rests deliver greater comfort and facility.
