Éric Caudron plays the saxophones Henri SELMER Paris Soprano and Alto Série lll, Tenor Super Action 80 Série ll.
The Series III Soprano ensures greater playability, particularly as regards pitch and blowing.
The blowing emission of its high register extended to high G has been largely facilitated. Selecting a straight or curved neck allows to get well acquainted with it.
The 'Series III' Alto is no doubt the most performing of our catalogue. It is a very accurate model in terms of tuning and emission. It offers a great richness of tone.
The 'Super Action 80 Series II' Tenor has earned a solid reputation thanks to its very different personality. It enables the production of an open sound, very rich in harmonics and an excellent projection power.
