Modèle 2022 n°001 at Vichy auctions!

Le Modèle 2022 aux enchères de Vichy !

Designed in limited edition on the occasion of the centenary of the very first SELMER saxophone, the alto Supreme Modèle 2022 was manufactured in 641 numbered pieces. All of them have been sent across the world… except for one, number 001!

The First and The Last One

An unprecedented version of the alto Supreme, the Modèle 2022 was produced in only 641 pieces, all of which quickly sold around the world except for one – numbered 001 – which was never put on the market.

This very first edition will be auctioned on May 6, 2023 as part of an exceptional sale organised by Vichy Enchères, an essential reference in terms of prestigious musical instruments. The profits will be donated to several charities working to develop the practice of music with underprivileged audiences.

Model 2022

The sale is accessible from all over the world live on the Interencheres website. Don't miss this unique opportunity to get an exceptional saxophone while supporting access to instrumental practice! See you on Saturday, May 6 from 1:45 p.m. at 16 Avenue de Lyon in Vichy, or online at www.interencheres.com.
