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 SBS311 premium student baritone saxophone features the signature Selmer tone. The rose brass neck combined with a fully ribbed construction creates a rich, warm, and projecting sound. An elegant hand engraving adorns the beautiful gold lacquer, durable nickel plating is on the key work, and the iconic Selmer tri-point bell brace completes its beautiful finish.
Several upgrades were made including the palm key placement and use of premium Pisoni leather pads. Carefully adjusted blue steel needle springs create a light and fast key action for demanding technical passages. 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.
