Selmer Unveils New LaVoix Curved Soprano Saxophone

United States
4 December 2006 — Conn-Selmer, Inc. announces the introduction of new Selmer LaVoix model CS220 soprano saxophone. LaVoix (pronounced: La-VWA) literally means “The Voice.” This new curved model carries the legacy of a long line of saxophone greats and is designed as a mid-priced instrument worthy of the name Selmer.

The Selmer LaVoix model CS220 features a yellow brass neck, body, bell and bow with clear lacquered keys. A similar model (CS220B) is available with a black nickel plated body. The neck opening is aerodynamically tapered to reduce resistance. Keys include a high F#, tear drop shaped front F key spatula for easy reach and individually mounted left hand palm keys.

Other features include an adjustable thumb rest, sculptured key guards with adjustable bumpers, metal pad retainers/boosters on the lower stack and bell keys; tilting Bb, and low Eb and C key spatulas; and articulated low C# adjusting screw.

The outfit includes a professional hard rubber mouthpiece with premium Gonzalez reed, Trek-style case and accessories. Suggested retail is $3000.
