The Selmer AS42 is a first ever collaboration between Henri Selmer Paris and Selmer USA on an entry-level professional saxophone. Featuring a genuine Henri Selmer Paris neck custom designed for this horn, along with the exclusive AM42 Selmer Paris mouthpiece made especially for this saxophone. The AS42 is a very responsive saxophone that plays remarkably well in classical and jazz situations. Complemented with a BAM case and featuring a beautiful hand engraved pattern, the AS42 is as beautiful to look at as it is to play. Blue steel springs insure a quick response while the fully ribbed construction and metal resonators guarantee a wide dynamic range and exceptional projection. The AS42 is the only saxophone in its price range that can boast an authentic Henri Selmer Paris neck and mouthpiece.
