The search for an acoustic result closer to that of former models marked a key objective of the “Reference”. Integrating new technology, it embodies an exemplary marriage between tradition and modernity. Unquestionably, its richer, rounder and darker-grained sound brings it close to the Selmer Paris sound of the Fifties. The keywork, the engraving, the lacquer and above all the acoustics, through its roundness of sound, all greatly strengthen its connection with the “Mark VI”.
These models are offered in previously unseen finishes: dark gold lacquer and antique finish.
