While it is true that many parts on this Limited Edition sax are shared parts with other models of Selmer Paris saxophones, there are an outstanding number of truly unique parts that were made exclusively for this tribute model. From the octave mechanism to the unique bracings, truly custom keyguards and even the all metal finger touches, the 130th Anniversary model is a truly unique saxophone worthy of being called a Limited Edition.
This model was further rounded out with the use of white pads without resonators, paying tribute to the original saxophone designs. White leather pads with rivets, without resonator. Features inspired by the'Model 22', including a neck octave key and U-shape body/bell brace.Octave key spatula inspired by the'Balanced Action. Wire key guards and nickel silver finger buttons inspired by the original'Adolphe Sax' instruments. A new key guard design. The composition of the body really embraces the vintage era of saxophone making but keeps all the positives and playability of the modern day sax. Each part from the brace between the body and bell, wire key guards to the pearl key rollers add to the mystique of the instrument. I also like the Nickel silver finger buttons which are again reminiscent of the old Adolph sax horns. As well as the great cosmetics, It is clear that when Selmer designed this horn they really focused on the quality and richness of the vintage sound. The Adolphe gives the user a free blowing experience with a perfect amount of resistance resulting in a warm, round and beautiful vintage tone. The whole thing is incredibly easy to control from top to bottom and a real joy to play. It is another step forward for Selmer in continuing in their great saxophone tradition. From the technical side, the saxophone has been checked in the service, it is 100% functional and ready to play. The only thing I noticed is that the neck could have been painted because it has a slightly different shade from the body, otherwise the saxophone is in perfect condition.
