Our service ReWIND has been selected for the "ESG With You" series, valuing the meaningful initiatives in terms of eco-responsibility. Discover the story of a Cigar Cutter, born in 1932 and found recently...

Born in 1932 in the SELMER workshops in Mantes-la-Ville, this saxophone was first sold to a London musician before leaving for new adventures in Sri Lanka.

Found a few years ago abandoned in an attic, the instrument was given to our technician Martin Deutsch.

Complete disassembling, repair of defective parts, levelling of the tone holes and keys, re-stamping, replacement of mother-of-pearl and springs... For six days, Martin restored the instrument while keeping its identity as a Cigar Cutter.

Following this rebirth and thanks to the REWIND project, the instrument is now ready to continue its history with a new owner.
