Conn-Selmer Avant DSS 200 - Soprano Saxophone


A reliable, well built soprano saxophone, made from premium materials made by a manufacturer with a combined 100 years of prestige in instrument manufacturing.


The Conn-Selmer Avant DSS-200 soprano provides soprano players with a unique horn that can serve both as a first instrument to new players and the next step for players currently on a student horn. Much like the DSS-180, the key work and and construction of the horn is great quality and highly ergonomic, the DSS-200 has more substantial key work and “scaffolding” (points where the rods are solders onto the tube) adding more weight and depth to the tone. The use of premium Red Brass in the composition of the horn provides a deeper and more refined tone. 

The Conn-Selmer Avant 200 Soprano comes in a stylish Conn-Selmer hard case, accompanied with a Rousseau JDX Jazz Model mouthpiece, completing the package.

The Conn-Selmer Avant 200 is an incredibly free-blowing and responsive horn from top to bottom. The intonation is superb and makes the horn just a joy to play. The ergonomics of the Avant 200 is very similar to the DSS-180, however the red brass construction plays a huge part in why the Avant 200 has a more professional polish and depth to the tone that can be produced.

All in all, if you are looking to upgrade your current student model and looking at the world of intermediate soprano saxophones, I can’t think of many better horns at this price then the Avant 200
