Finishes Selmer necks

Given that the parameters can differ from one model to another, it is difficult to lay down a general rule; however, we can observe that particular materials or finishes have certain affects :

  • The gold plated finish acts directly on the centeredness, precision and richness of the sound.
  • Solid silver affects the dynamics and general homogeneity.

Even so, only an actual test will allow you to fully appreciate the intrinsic quality of each of these necks.
