What's behind
conception

Eight years ago, we set ourselves a challenge: to design the best saxophone ever made. A saxophone that would rise above musical genres. A saxophone adapted to all kinds of music, playing styles and sound types. A saxophone whose ease and evidence of playing would induce a direct and immediate relationship to sound.

To better free themselves from musical genres and imagine the universal instrument, a team of saxophone testers of various genres was formed. No acoustic, mechanical, ergonomic, nor aesthetic detail was neglected.
 

The Supreme has all the qualities common to the models that preceded it, meeting the desires of all saxophonist profiles:  beauty and care in the creation of the Balanced Action, the legendary suppleness of the Mark VI, the ease of the Super Action 80 Series II, the precision and elegance of the Series III, and the power and roundness of the Reference.

In-house research has enabled us to push back the physical limits of the compromise between tuning, timbre and response. Furthermore, numerous innovations have also made it possible to optimize the ergonomics and mechanics of the instrument, contributing to an unprecedented enjoyment and ease of playing.

The global aesthetics of the Supreme has been reconsidered. It evokes  fluidity of play through sleek lines and roundness through the softening of angles. All key guards (low B and Bb, side F#, Eb, C, and the pant guard) and the bow reinforcement have been redesigned in harmony with the instrument. The engraving evokes a sense of universality.

this instrument
"Like the Mark VI, The Supreme responds to extremely diverse instrumental approaches. Even better, it reveals the authentic acoustics of the saxophone, finally transparent to the multiple musical genres that call for it."
Claude Delangle
"The new SELMER Supreme saxophone combines the sound of its legendary models with the technical and innovative modernity that makes it a great instrument with an incomparable and irreproachable quality."
