This is a quintessential vintage Selmer Soloist with a classical-leaning tone. It has straight sidewalls, horseshoe chamber, subtle rollover baffle, and the tip opening measures 0.073″. It has a dark Selmer tone, with no edge at all despite mild rollover baffle. Round and warm and dark like a cello. If you want your Selmer to lean classical or wind band or small ensemble, this would be ideal. It also completes your set with a Selmer Mark VI tenor from the 1960’s.
