the new Henri Selmer saxophone reeds

[VIDEO] Technical features Comparison Chart

In this 130th anniversary of the company’s founding, Henri Selmer Paris is creating a buzz and returning to its initial activity: the design and manufacturing of Saxophone reeds.

Following tradition, Henri SELMER Paris uses reed cane from the south of France, and stands out by using wild cane. Richer in fiber it offers greater durability and lifespan.

Three years of work, in collaboration with the most demanding musicians, were necessary for the Henri Selmer Paris Research and Development team to perfect the profile of a reed adapted to the needs of artists across all musical spectrums, including classical, jazz, and popular music. Ease of vibration, flexibility, richness of sound, and a unique balance across all registers symbolize this new reed.

High precision machines guarantee a quality and regularity in the cut. State-of-the art reed calibration allows musicians to find more great reeds in each box.

The Henri Selmer saxophone reeds carry the name of the founder of the company and professional clarinettist.

They are available for soprano, alto, and tenor saxophones, in strengths 2 to 4.

So as to make the musician’s daily life a little easier, all while respecting the environment, the reeds are sold in a six-pack and include a reed case made of recyclable plastic, designed by Henri Selmer Paris. A practical solution for every musician’s needs.

A worldwide reference for woodwinds, Henri Selmer Paris works closer with musicians than ever before. Thanks to its comprehensive design and manufacturing approach, Henri Selmer Paris exalts the complementary and inseparable trio: instrument, mouthpiece, and reed.
