Series 10 is the CURRENT series. Within the series, there are bore
variations. The 10G is .574, the Recital is .563, the Series 10S II and
Prologue II are .567. My own Series 10 (c.1971, before all these
variations developed, is of unknown size but should be in that range
somewhere. I ask the Selmer rep to try to find out the specs for me every
time he comes to town but, understandably, my request is not high on his
"to do" list. In any case, the Series 9 was the LAST of the big-bore
Selmers, not counting the Selmer USA/Bundy 1400 plastic one at .590 (The
.577 model 1401 has been discontinued!)

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is TOO LOUD!
