Designed and manufactured in our workshops in Mantes-la-Ville, the care taken in the manufacture of the Axos tenor by our craftspeople shows the same level of demand and know-how as its predecessors. As an entry-level professional saxophone, it has the same qualities of great flexibility, accuracy and projection as the other Henri SELMER Paris saxophones.
Its great ease of playing and rich timbre make it an ideal instrument to “tame” the tenor, whatever the level of playing. The simplified neck fitting and the special pads amplify this ease of response. The fingers rest naturally on its strong, durable, and ergonomically comfortable keywork.
The warm lacquer hue and the finesse of its engraving are the hallmarks of a great tenor.
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.
