The Series III alto saxophones were released in the late 90’s to offer a Selmer that was more focused, responsive and brilliant than previous Selmer models. The end result is a horn that is articulate and precise with impeccable intonation & tonal clarity.
Selmer employs a lighter weight “mini-rib” construction that decreases the overall mass along the length of the body tube thus decreasing vibrational resistance. This means that the horn responds the quickest of the Selmer sax series. This is partnered with a tighter bore through the neck. This gives the Serie III sax more tonal brilliance and an impressive altissimo.
