A great flexibility, an almost infinite variety of timbres, a very centered and at the same time very malleable sound.
A saxophone whose main quality is to adapt to all profiles of saxophonists, whatever their style or level. The Reference model goes as far as reproducing the design of some of the keys of the famous Mark VI model, which offers ergonomics made for the largest number of musicians.
The saxophone is a particularly sensitive instrument, consisting of more than 600 parts. Its production requires more than 2,000 operations.
