Model 84 Selmer (Reference 36) Bb Tenor Saxophone: Inspired by the Balanced Action model released in 1936, Selmer presents the Reference 36 tenor saxophone. Extraordinary response, tone, comfort, and tuning make this a horn that has everything that has made Selmer the world-wide name in saxophones.
The Reference 36 Tenor Saxophone is a recreation of the famous Selmer (Paris) Balanced Action, with a shiny rose gold colored lacquer on the body and the keys. Featuring a wider bore diameter at the bow-to-bell junction, the Reference 36 possesses open, flexible and rich playing qualities. The Neck, body, bow and bell are also produced from a special brass alloy with a higher copper content for a richer, warmer sound. Kid leather pads with plastic tone boosters contribute to sound projection and playing flexibility. The compact design makes the keys feel closer to the body of the instrument. The Reference 36 also includes the traditional pearl key for front F.
