||Launched at winter Namm show 2005, the new Selmer LaVoix will be showcased at Musikmesse Frankfurt, hall 6.0 C15. Conn-Selmer has introduced a mid-priced saxophone line worthy of the name Selmer.
The Selmer LaVoix models feature the Ultra bell large bell rim design and red brass bell, body and neck. "Both the alto and tenor models are rich in overtones," said Stan Garber, Director of Marketing for Conn-Selmer woodwinds. "Traditional Selmer dimensions combined with these specific materials and design will please the discriminating teacher and provide a Selmer option to those players who cannot quite reach our prestigious Selmer Paris models."
Other features include double key arms on the low C and B keys, a reinforced table key arch, a Selmer Paris S80-C* mouthpiece and specially designed Trek-style case. The Selmer LaVoix alto is model number AS220 and the tenor is model TS220. Both instruments are available in clear lacquer, silver-plated and black nickel-plated finishes.
