Selmer Paris Professional Model 52JM Alto Saxophone

About the Model 52JM

The Selmer Paris Series II alto saxophone is the most popular Selmer Paris saxophone in history. The 52JM is identical to the 52JU except that the matte finish with lacquer keys provides a unique look and warm 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.
