"Reference" is a new Selmer Paris concept, which allows for combining acoustic or ergonomic features of several previous Selmer Paris models with the qualities of a today’s design and making. The "Reference" series currently have 2 tenor saxophone versions: -"Reference 36" -"Reference 54". The more centred "Reference 54" incorporates the famous "Mark VI" design, which came out in 1954.
Acoustics, ergonomic features and aesthetics recall the spirit of this famous model: - rich, round tone colour, very centered blowing and exceptional tuning balance, - compact and precise keywork, comfortable handling, - a specific finish with a fine engraving and dark lacquer. The “Reference” Tenor stands out with its great ease of playing, flexibility and power which give free rein to expressiveness.
