Selmer Paris Professional Model 52JBL Alto Saxophone

About the Model 52JBL

The Selmer Paris Series II alto saxophone is the most popular Selmer Paris saxophone in history. The 52JBL is identical to the 52JU except that the black lacquer provides a unique look and darker tone. The Series II sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, bass and baritone saxophones have been the professional choice for a generation and continue to be the most popular professional saxophone in the world. The reasons are clear: they all possess a flexible but centered tone that is natural in almost any playing situation. Yellow brass body tubes and keys resonate across the entire timbre spectrum: full-ribbed construction enhances their durability. The Series’ superior intonation characteristics make these saxophone a natural choice for any professional or those who aspire to be.
