You’ll play better with a Selmer. Fueled by passion and dedication, Selmer has been leading the industry in woodwind design and innovation for over 135 years. Selmer’s commitment to manufacturing the highest quality instruments has ensured that every player is delivered the best musical experience on or off the concert stage. For better first notes, practice sessions, rehearsals, or performances, you don’t just need an instrument - you need a Selmer.
Designed from the artisan Selmer Paris saxophones, the Selmer SAS201 is carefully crafted with the beginning student in mind. The neck, tone hole system, and bore design provide superb intonation and ease of flexibility with a post to body construction to facilitate quick response without sacrificing the iconic Selmer sound. With a range to high F#, the SAS201 saxophone features power-forged single-arm keys and the recognizable Selmer tri-point bell brace to ensure consistent and reliable seating of the newly implemented, acoustically enhancing Pisoni leather pads.
Improvements include the palm key placement and use of carefully adjusted blue steel needle springs establishing a light and fast key action iconic to the Selmer brand. Additionally, a 3-phase tone hole leveling process guarantees precisely level tone holes for long-lasting pad seating and stability. Every Selmer saxophone is professionally set up, play-tested, and optimally adjusted at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Factory located in Elkhart, Indiana.
At Conn-Selmer, we are committed to ensuring every woodwind instrument is ready to play right out of the box. To obtain this objective, we have developed and implemented a stringent "double set up process" for all woodwinds. This process means the instrument is play-tested and adjusted, allowed to rest, and then meticulously re-examined and re-adjusted by our expert quality assurance team. Rest assured, every woodwind instrument is now professionally set up at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Center in Elkhart, IN, in optimal playing condition the moment you open the case, and ready to last a lifetime.
