... Also, like all Selmer's, this sax is not normally supplied with a case, so be prepared to shell out around £100 for a decent case (the selmer cases are closer to £200, but you can get a good enough case for £100)
Overall, this sax is well built, and easy to play, with a nice rich tone. ... Read review
Nice Dark tone, good intonation, and smooth engraving
This horn is quite expensive and the positioning of the palm keys doesn't quite suit my hands - the price is the only real disadvantage though!
"...me, and I play a selmer reference 36 tenor.
The Serie II has a lovely tone, which is very resonant, making the whole horn vibrate, creating a dark rich tone. The intonation on this horn is also fairly good, but I didn't find the intonation quite as good as on the Serie III.
I like the design of the Serie II, and it feels comfortable to play, except for the right hand palm keys, which for some reason, to me, feel like they are in the wrong position, ..."

A fairly good tone, and made by selmer - probably the worlds best saxophone maunfacturer
Lacking something that other selmers has, and I find some of the keywork is not in the best position - especially the palm keys! Also more expensive than the Serie II, which most saxophonists prefer to the serie III! (*)
