I have a Selmer Series II Super action 80, I think it's this model listed. When ever I play it in a band, concert band, small group, the conductor is always asking, "What kind of horn is that?" They always notice the full sound. I've only heard one horn I liked better and that was a Vintage Conn....but then I could probably get some different tones if I used something other than the Selmer C* Great horn, coming from those who are listening.
I have had experience with playing a number of different brands of Bari Saxes, but none of them come close to the quality and sound of a Selmer Paris. Many other brands are hard to get the lowest and highest of notes out on a Bari, but the Selmer Paris Bari can play the entire range of the Bari with ease. You always get what you pay for and this is definitely worth every penny.
As a professional musician, I have had a significant amount of experience playing many models of both Selmer (Mark VI, Series II and III) and Yamaha (52, 62) baritone saxophones. While I find the Yamaha to have a more even feel and sound throughout it's entire range (all of the notes generally respond with the same degree of resistance regardless of the register), the Selmer baritones feel as if they have significantly more of a core to their sound at dynamic extremes, perhaps due to the increased weight of the horn compared with the Yamaha.
The Selmer also has more adjustment screws on the lower stack and especially the bell (a coupe extra screws for the Low A mechanism alone), when compared to the Yamaha. While this might not have an immediate impact on the way that a new horn plays, as the horn ages it will be easier for a woodwind repair technician to keep the instrument in proper adjustment.
Beginning with the Series II, Selmer saxophones also have the advantage of having spring-mounted inserts in each of the rods, which means that over time the instrument will not develop lost motion in the keys to the degree that you find on other makes of saxophones.
In general, I find the Selmer to have a more complex sound and slightly more attention to detail in its construction when compared to the Yamaha.
