Saxophone alto

Series III

Réf. 2313030076

The Series III alto is a very accurate model in terms of tuning and emission. It offers a great richness of tone.

Unveiled in 1999, its innovative design, based in particular on a number of small pads designed to reduce the surface welded to the sound tube, has made it possible to free its resonance.

The intonation has been improved, thanks to the system patented by Henri SELMER Paris guaranteeing a perfect ratio between the middle and high C#. Its high register is particularly open and brilliant, giving it a luminous sound which is its own. The geometry of its cone offers a real alternative in terms of accuracy and sound.

The Henri SELMER Paris Series III alto saxophone has become the instrument of choice for technically demanding musicians.

Alto Série III


My Selmer Series III has been with me since I was 12. It has something deep and special that makes you connect with the instrument in a very special way.
Manu Brazo
It gives me everything I would expect from a professional saxophone: fast and efficient response, clear and powerful sound, great projection, dense and brilliant colours with remarkable homogeneity.
Rodrigo Capistrano
I like the Henri Selmer Paris saxophones for their richness of tone and sound. They are very ergonomic. They are versatile instruments with a very good balance of registers and in tune, and very good mechanics
Éric Caudron
I was lucky enough to start my career as a saxophonist with the legendary SELMER Paris Serie III alto. It has been my faithful companion throughout my career, in numerous recitals, concerts and competitions in the United States, Europe and Japan.

I find a whole world of possibilities with my gold-plated Series III: purity of sound, projection, roundness, timbre, balanced tuning and a huge range of colours.
Antonio García Jorge
The sound of the Series III viola is very rich in harmonics, the roundness of the bass and the brilliance of the treble are astonishing

The Series III viola has a warm and charismatic sound with great projection, perfect for solo performances and chamber music.
