The Selmer SAS280 La Voix II Alto Saxophone's fluid keywork gives it a relaxed feeling, while its perfect intonation and warm sound make it a welcome instrument both in the concert band or the hands of a soloist. The Selmer La Voix II sax' traditional-sized bell helps saxophonists keep their tone focused and makes blending easy.

You'll like the price of the Selmer SAS280 La Voix alto saxophone as much as its sound. Finally you can afford a step-up sax with features like professional key styling-for accurate fingering-that you would expect to find only on more expensive instruments.

Selmer has worked to make the SAS280 La Voix II an alto sax that is easy to play. Pitch is consistent without strain from the low end to altissimo. The La Voix II saxophone can really project and offers you dark jazzy sound when you need it.

The Selmer SAS280 La Voix II Alto Saxophone is a player's instrument made affordable for all musicians.

    Comments about Selmer SAS280 La Voix II Alto Saxophone Outfit:

    Plays well and easily. I had some trouble getting the lowest notes in tune - the came out sharp.
    But, this is the first alto I've liked right off the bat. And, at the price, it's worth it.
    One sax I've heard (not recently) that beats it easily is the Selmer Kookaburra alto. That's the sweetest I've ever heard. I'm old (73) and would like to generate a Paul Desmond sound. But, for now, this sax will be an enjoyable experience. My main horn is a Mark VI tenor #84xxx. So, I'm a bit spoiled about getting a smooth, creamy sound. Can't beat a good Mark VI. This alto, for the price, well, nothing else comes close. Now, I'll just have to wait and see how it holds up over time.

      Comments about Selmer SAS280 La Voix II Alto Saxophone Outfit:

      This sax is perfect for the hight school performer that requires an upgrade to a semi/pro instrument. Plays both jazz & classical colors. The mouth piece that comes with it is also pretty good. Solid sax, made well, looks amazing in silver plate.
