What's behind

Henri SELMER Paris entered the History of the Saxophone by presenting its first model in 1922, the “Modèle 22”.

The Supreme “Modèle 2022” pays tribute to the generations of craftspeople who have perpetuated a unique and precious know-how in our workshops in Mantes-la-Ville, where during the last hundred years, all the saxophone models have been designed and manufactured. It also celebrates the artistic richness of the 20th century, and of course the saxophone, which patiently waited until the 1920s to fully blossom through different repertoires.

The body and the keywork are lacquered in matte dark gold, an exclusive finish that creates a unique light and reflections. The design of the gold-plated body-to-bell is reminiscent of the microphones of the 1920s. A black grenadilla wood medallion with the golden "S" of SELMER is inserted in its center. The pads are made of black leather and the resonators are brushed lacquered with a wavy shape. For maximum durability, the two thumb rests are gold plated.

Each instrument is unique, with a limited edition number on the neck-to-body connection.

The engraving pays tribute to Paris and its monuments (notably Montmartre, where Henri SELMER Paris was founded), to past and future musicians, and to the Art Deco artistic movement.
