The Series III Soprano ensures greater playability, more accuracy and ergonomically comfortable keywork. 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.
Set up with the same concern for versatility of use, the Series III range is suitable for musicians from different backgrounds and is characterized by its great flexibility.
The Henri SELMER Paris Series III soprano offers a beautiful roundness of sound and a great richness of tone. It is characterized in particular by its great ease of emission, especially in the high notes.
Its ambitus is extended by the addition of a key allowing to reach the high G. Thanks to its ergonomics, it offers a comfort of play quite similar to that of the alto.
Comfort is increased by the choice between two removable necks, one straight and the other curved, allowing an alternative in terms of playing position and sound.
The saxophone is a particularly sensitive instrument, consisting of more than 600 parts. Its production requires more than 2,000 operations.
At Henri SELMER Paris, the manufacturing process is totally integrated for a better control of quality and supply processes.
In the century-old workshops located in Mantes-la-Ville, our craftspeople use traditional, unique and authentic know-how, combining high technology with respect for traditional methods of making instruments.

I particularly like the sound color of my Series III soprano saxophone. It is an instrument that allows me to play all repertoires, the most extreme nuances in all registers, to express a lot of sensitivity.
Great projection, fast emission, rounded sound. I love it!
I've always liked the Selmer sound. It is this unique sound, of great flexibility, which allows a vital artistic freedom to express and share the magic of the moment.
These instruments let the musician find their own palette of sounds, invent new ones and more. They are rich, versatile, and full inspiring to play.
The Series III is the most in-tune soprano that I have ever played. It's the only one I will trust.
