this instrument
"The Selmer 'Serie III' Alto Saxophone has a warm tone in the bass and an undeniable brilliance in the treble. No matter what repertoire you play, it will amaze you at every moment."

Carlos Gontijo
"It allows me to find the sound I need in any situation. In the intimacy of the softest nuances of classical or contemporary music as well as in the explosion of dynamism that I love in jazz or improvised music."

"I love it because I can achieve the sound I want. I recommend it because it is the saxophone with the best design in the world."
Harold Guillén Monge
"I love Henri SELMER Paris saxophones for their richness of tone and sound. They have very good ergonomics. They are versatile instruments with a very good balance of registers and tuning, and very good mechanics. They are sober and "classy" instruments."
Éric Caudron
"I’ve always played only Selmer saxophones: in my opinion, Selmer is to saxophone what Mercedes is to cars, Rolex to watches, Parmigiano to Italian cuisine… simply the best!"
Fabrizio Paoletti
"When playing Selmer saxophones I always have the feeling that I can constantly develop my skills, such as sound and playing technique. Only the Henri Selmer Paris saxophones guarantee the feeling of being able to develop these elements without putting any limitations on my capability."

"I've been playing Selmer saxophones for over fifteen years and they are still my best ambassadors."
