The Conn-Selmer Premier Tenor 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 the performer to play all kinds of genres with minimal effort. Through new technology and better materials, this instrument is a long lasting and durable instrument which you would desire from a modern instrument.
Care and attention to detail have gone into the design and manufacture of the Conn-Selmer PTS380 to offer a flexible instrument that caters for all players. Adjusting screws on the Front F, G#, right-hand stack and Low C# combined with an adjustable right-hand thumb rest provide the player to perform to their specifications. Metal resonators on the treated leather pads provide a powerful sound all the way through the body. The mechanisms themselves have been slightly compacted to enable quicker and more efficient playing.
The unlacquered finish on the saxophone gives a vintage look that is becoming very popular among many of the top players at the moment. This finish leaves the bronze untreated which over time and with use leaves to pockets of tarnishing, giving the vintage look to the instrument.
