Bb Tenor

professional calibre Tenor Saxophones
Selmer (Paris) 

Rampone & Cazzani 

Selmer (Paris) tenors are centered in sonic quality and offer state-of-the art features. Serie III has a focused sound and is both powerful and balanced. The Référence tenors are warmer and more complex sounding, reminiscent of older Selmer horns

Yanagisawa tenors are very close in sound to Selmer Paris Serie III horns and not as bright as Yamaha YTS-875 horns. They are very well made and are offered in 2 levels. Remarkably, both pro (T901, T902) and enhanced pro (T991, T992) models sound alike and it's because they use the same bodies. Also offered in stunning "Silver-Sonic" (T9930, T9937) Solid 95% Pure Sterling Silver versions.

Brancher France tenors combine a fresh set of technical achievements in design using an intelligent combination of high tech French made and Taiwan produced parts. The result is a centered sound with a very complex sound and incredible power and intonation performance. Nothing short of wonderful. A terrific value without compromise on quality, Brancher's saxophones are going to challenge perceptions of what is possible at a moderate price.

Rampone & Cazzani offer the warmest, darkest tenors on the market in the form of the R1 Jazz Tenor. Use of high copper content "Red" brass in an oversize bore and and heavy gold plating on the body and keys make this saxophone unique in its look, feel and especially its sound. Vintage look, vintage sound without the compromises at an amazing price.
