OVERVIEW

An updated edition of the most popular Selmer Paris sax ever.

The Jubilee Edition saxophones replace the standard Super Action 80 Series II and Super Action 80 series III saxophones. Jubilee Series instruments are more aesthetically elegant and offer redesigned features that are lighter and more responsive. The Series II Model 52 Jubilee Edition Alto Saxophone is an update of the most popular Selmer Paris saxophone ever. There is a reason the Series II has been THE standard in professional saxophones for a generatio

The Super Action 80 Series 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.

125 years of experience have enabled Selmer Paris to create the acoustic and aesthetic alchemy of the saxophone and become the main architect of its evolution. With the jubilee celebration saxophones, Selmer lays the foundation for a new visual identity of the instrument, while keeping intact its sound conception and the creativity of its ergonomics.

In keeping with the French jeweler's tradition, the new engraving is thinner thanks to an new outline technique, comes to decorate the bell and the bow, doubled on the bell-to-bow ring by the original signature of the Founder, Henri Selmer. A new lacquer optimizes the quality of the play of light through shades of "gold" tone in the instrument's reflection.

The neck key is redesigned through a lighter mechanism and subtly thinner outlines, thus becoming more elegant. In order to fulfill this new visual balance, the geometry of the "S" neck is imperceptibly modernized on a deep blue background even more recognizable.

Includes a S80C mouthpiece.

FEATURES
  • The S80C mouthpiece offers dynamic aesthetics and an optimized acoustic resonance
  • Gold tone lacquer offers more warmth and presence
  • A new style of outline engraving highlights a thinner, more elegant and elaborate design from the bell to the bow, with Henri Selmer's signature on the connecting ring.
  • A redesigned octave neck key has a lighter mechanism and subtly thinner outlines
  • The bow-to-bow ring displays the original signature of Henri Selmer
  • 100% French manufactured
  • The included accessory kit features the latest Selmer Paris top-of-the-range accessory line including strap, swab, cloth, and cork grease

Comments about Selmer Paris Series II Model 52 Jubilee Edition Alto Saxophone:

I have played every single Selmer Paris Alto you can imagine, Mark VI, plenty of them, Series III, Mark VII, and always the Series II has demonstrated to be the best of them all. Has a lot of power, the best altissimo, and the best overall sound.

Amazing Saxophone

By 

from Stockton, CA

Comments about Selmer Paris Series II Model 52 Jubilee Edition Alto Saxophone:

I tested this out, on the trial program, along with the Yamaha 62III and Custom Z (Mark II) (and my teacher's Series III), and this was the best of the bunch; even my teacher agreed with me. Though this was the most expensive of the three, it was a good mix of the two Yamahas. The Custom Z was too free-blowing, which is good for jazz, but not classical; the 62 series was too resistant and didn't have great altissimo. The Selmer offered both a resistant and free-closing nature, with amazing altissimo and a more sonorous high range (meaning the Yamahas got edgier in the high range, whereas the Selmer kept its tone and got beefier). The Series III offered too much darkness in its overall sound, which is better for a serious classical musician. When you buy a horn, price is important on your wallet, but you shouldn't have to think about your wallet (Sorry for those of you on a budget). If you want an amazing horn that's diverse and malleable to the genre you want to play, this is it.

Best Saxophone I have ever played on

By

Comments about Selmer Paris Series II Model 52 Jubilee Edition Alto Saxophone:

I tried out this saxophone when I decided to go from a student saxophone to a professional one. I tried out many different brands and styles but none of them really "clicked" with me. Then I picked up a selmer series 2, and wow what a difference, I knew it was the one I wanted. I decided to go for the Jubilee Edition because its a little newer. It has a full sound and quick response. I feels great to hold and play and I get a lot of projection and air through it which is great for playing in ensembles. I can see me having this saxophone for the rest of my playing career.

Great horn, Super price for a Selmer Paris

By

Comments about Selmer Paris Series II Model 52 Jubilee Edition Alto Saxophone:

Great tone & projection, as expected from a Selmer Paris. Very smooth & easy playing, jumps from low to high & vice versa, come very easy & natural. S125 mouthpiece plays well, with a crisp, bright sound, but feels quite large & bulky. I am used to my Selmer C star metal, & Otto Link tonemaster.Overall the action, playability,& good looks of this horn are pure Selmer Paris at its finest.
