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.
The Selmer SAS411 series of intermediate alto saxophones are one of the top-performing saxophones in the world, available at a great price point, and designed after the professional line of Selmer Paris saxophones. The SAS411 series have incredible tonal complexity. This, combined with a hand-adjusted neck, Pisoni Pro pads, and a one-piece, hand-hammered bell create a tone that is not only the best in its class but a sound that outperforms many of its competitors.
The 411 series saxophones come in 4 beautiful options; gold lacquer, silver plate, black nickel, and copper (this features clear lacquer with a copper alloy neck and body tube). These four beautiful finishes are ornamented with newly designed hand engraving based on the iconic Selmer Paris Mark VI American artwork from Elkhart, Indiana. To protect this instrument when not in use it comes with a premium ballistic nylon case featuring comfortable backpack straps, a spacious accessories compartment, durable handles, and an outer pocket to store sheet music.
Several upgrades went into the development of this new intermediate alto saxophone, including a proprietary 3-phase tone hole leveling process which guarantees precisely level tone holes for long-lasting pad seating and stability. The blue steel needle springs create a light and fast key action for which Selmer is known, an adjustable thumb rest, and superior ergonomics provide everything needed for fast and demanding technical passages. Additionally, every Selmer saxophone is professionally set up, play-tested, and optimally adjusted at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Center located in Elkhart, Indiana.
Also available in a copper finish as SAS411C, silver-plated finish as SAS411S, or black nickel finish as SAS411B. SAS411 is pictured above.
