Super Action 80 Series II

Réf. 2314020076

The “Super Action 80 Series II” tenor has earned a solid reputation for its very different personality. It allows the production of an open, harmonically rich sound with excellent projection power.

Released in 1986, this makes it the longest-lived tenor among the various tenor models in the catalog. Its very pronounced angulation gives it a very specific timbre, a very particular grain of sound, very recognizable, with a lot of character.

This specific angulation also determines a playing position, specific to this model. This very specific geometry allows him a great finesse of sound while having a great capacity of projection.

A tenor that you have to get to know to discover all its richness.

Le meilleur du saxophone

I've been playing my Selmer Super Action 80 II for 21 years now. It has proven to be the most reliable and consistent sax I have ever tried. The Selmer Super Action 80 II allows me to play with a palette of rich, highly nuanced sounds. Its ergonomics are second to none, allowing me to play the most technically demanding music. Projection and intonation are also superb, allowing me to express my own artistic vision without constraint.
Lukas Gabric
A beautiful tone in all nuances and registers, a warm sound.
Pedro Bittencourt
Since the beginning of my career, I've played Selmer instruments because they give me what I want from an instrument - power, colour, emotion, security. It's the instrument that presents me completely and with which I can express everything that's inside me…
Gabor Bunford Buga
It's a very personal saxophone because you really have to study its mechanisms and its charm to exploit all its virtues. I recommend it because of the guarantee of a colourful sound with marvellous technical reliability
Aina Helgeland Davidsen
The saxophone is the instrument that most closely resembles the human voice. We all have our own sound and it is an instrument capable of giving voice to all types of music.
