A change of direction lay in store for the “Super Action 80”. At the request of musicians, its keywork was reduced and made more compact than on the “Mark VII”. In fact, with the “Super Action 80”, Selmer revisited the ergonomics of the “Mark VI” while at the same time preserving the acoustical progress made by the “Mark VII”. Modifications to the dimensions of the neck and bow, combined with a return to metal boosters led to a further enrichment of the sound.
