Quality and versatility to go the distance.Versatility is one of the attributes of a great professional saxophone, and the SAS711 is a stellar example, providing a primed canvas for forging your signature sound. Saxophonists who play both classical and jazz, for instance, can choose an appropriate mouthpiece and reed - or even a specialized neck - to customize their horn for the music at hand. However you set it up, the SAS711 delivers a fluency of tone with a crisp transition between notes. The solid tonal core delivered by the SAS711 owes much to the instrument's fully ribbed body construction.
The benefits of ribbed body construction. Integrating the multiple key posts into a single plate, so-called "ribbed" body construction gives the tube higher mass (and hence more rigidity and durability), and requires somewhat more effort from the player. This makes the horn blow with moderate resistance while delivering a solid fundamental with rich tonal color. For experienced intermediate and pro saxophonists with a more developed embouchure and sound concept, it's a definite advantage. Although ribbed construction typically presents a slightly increased initial resistance, it effectively gives you another level of resonance - an extra "gear, " if you will - to blow through for additional dynamic range and expression.
Simply put, you can push the SAS711 further, and it will go exactly where you want it to go. The Selmer legacy of quality and innovation.
