As all our top-of-the-range instruments, the Axos model continues the tradition of craftsmanship manufacturing integrating new industrial techniques.
Since its release in 2015, it is the ideal instrument for musicians who want to purchase a professional saxophone at a more affordable price. Many students, amateurs and professionals alike have adopted it. Aiming to make quality instruments available to a greater number of musicians, Axos provides a great playing comfort with its specially adapted keywork and a great mechanical reliability.
On the occasion of its fifth anniversary, the Axos alto has been given a specific darker lacquer whose warm hue is similar to that of the other models. The “second generation” Axos also offers a specific floral engraving for a high quality alto.
The saxophone is a particularly sensitive instrument, consisting of more than 600 parts. Its production requires more than 2,000 operations.
At Henri SELMER Paris, the manufacturing process is totally integrated for a better control of quality and supply processes.
In the century-old workshops located in Mantes-la-Ville, our craftspeople use traditional, unique and authentic know-how, combining high technology with respect for traditional methods of making instruments.

This professional saxophone offers a balance between the best Selmer sound quality and the most affordable market prices, while maintaining its mechanical and acoustic qualities. Its ease of emission in all registers is amazing!
It's a tube that sounds monstrously good. I need a powerful sound, a brilliance, and it gives it to me.
Axos has totally won me over ! It is easy to play in the low register and has an especially full and round sound in the middle register. All this while keeping SELMER’s trademark : richness, sound and projection.
Axos puts out what I put into it! It gets a very good and powerful sound. It takes whatever you can give it. It’s got a good fat sound!
Great consistency, sound breadth, ergonomics… it is very pleasant. At the same time, the personality of the sound remains, which is characteristic of Henri SELMER Paris.
