Selmer Jubilee Series II Alto Saxophone Near Mint
Selmer Jubilee Series II alto saxophone. This is a one-owner horn which is in near mint condition. There are very few scratches on this horn. There was a ding that my repairman removed in the neck, but otherwise it's very clean. The horn was just serviced, so the pads seal perfectly and the horn plays effortlessly. The sax comes in its original case.
The Jubilee model feels like a nice upgrade from the older Series II. The build quality is better, the engraving is more elaborate and striking, and it plays just a little bit better than the previous generation of series II's. I spent some time comparing it to a couple Series II's I also have for sale, and this one has extra complexity, projection and power in the sound. It is easy to control in all ranges and dynamic registers. I really like Series II's in general, but this one seems a little better in performance and sound. Certainly a worthy upgrade to what has become the longest lived model Selmer has ever produced.
