This is a very nice condition Selmer Series III Jubilee (latest model) Soprano Sax, supplied with the original necks and one extra silver neck.
The whole SA80 range was re-designed in 2012/2013 which essentially consisted of a weight loss exercise for the Series II and Series III models. The new Jubilee editions carried less unnecessary bulk and as such the instruments responded with more speed and accuracy. To put it another way, the Selmer feel of old was re-introduced and the modern range was more inline with player demands for resonance, quick response and agility of tone.
This particular Series III Soprano is in very nice clean condition with only very light signs of general use. The lacquer and mechanics are all very clean and the pads in great condition. Like any second hand instrument from Dawkes it has been professionally checked and set-up in our woodwind workshop prior to sale. This instrument is presented in a Selmer Light Series case which is both very portable and protective.
The Series III is a two piece construction, so normally it comes supplied with two necks. One straight and one slightly curved, both in lacquer finish like the body. On this instrument there is also an additional neck supplied in sterling silver. This is in the curved design (albeit only a very slight curve on Selmer compared to other brands). It offers the player a slightly different tonal palette which is perhaps darker and a little richer due to the density of the silver. It's a nice addition to what is already an attractive outfit and gives the player another option.
In summary this would be an excellent pro-level Soprano for any advanced Alto/Tenor player who wants to add Soprano to their range. If you already play Sop but on a student/intermediate level then this would be a huge step forward in terms of sound quality. The Selmer III offers a rich, vibrant Soprano tone with great intonation and balance.
