This beautiful used Ref 54 tenor was bought new around 2009 and has been barely played. The lacquer is in great condition and is not showing any signs of wear and tear. It plays like a dream throughout all registers.
Supplied in the original Ref 54 shaped case and comes with the Selmer Super session H mouthpiece. Selmer Cap & Ligature included.
Here is what Selmer have to say about the reference 54:
Reference’ is a new Selmer Paris concept which combines acoustic or ergonomic characteristics of several famous previous Selmer Paris models with the qualities of today’s top design and manufacture. The Reference 54 range 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.
