Conn-Selmer has spent a lot of time creating the perfect vintage finish of the PAS 380V Premiere alto saxophone.
The all bronze body has an unlacquered finish which reveals the character of the metal - perfect for jazz ensembles. To further complement the design, the PAS380V Premiere features dark pearl key tops.
The Conn-Selmer Premiere alto Saxophone offers a sound more common to older styles of saxophone performance. It has been designed with a slightly higher resistance through the neck and body which allows for a more controlled performance in comparison to its modern day counterparts. As well as this, it also offers huge versatility enabling you to play a range of genres with minimal effort.
Care and attention to detail has gone into the design and manufacture of the Conn-Selmer PAS380V to create a flexible instrument that is suitable for all players. Adjusting screws on the front F, G#, right-hand stack and Low C combined with an adjustable right-hand thumb rest allow you to perform to your desired specifications. Metal resonators on the treated leather pads provide a powerful sound all the way through the body. Additionally, the mechanisms themselves have been slightly compacted to enable quicker and more efficient playing.
The unlacquered finish on this saxophone provides a vintage look that is becoming very popular among many professional players. This finish leaves the bronze untreated which over time and with use creates pockets of tarnishing, while also delivering a brighter tone when compared to lacquered instruments.
