from Adolphe SAX to Henri SELMER

Two hundred years ago Adolphe Sax was born. For nearly a century Henri SELMER Paris has risen to the challenge of this great inventor – to adapt and evolve the saxophone for the modern day – now introducing the LIMITED EDITION ALTO SAX.
A perfect synthesis of the multiple sound possibilities and varieties of timbre that the saxophone can offer. With this instrument Henri SELMER Paris reaffirms their mastery of traditional instrument making combined with an inventive force rooted in modernity, continuing along the path of the work of Adolphe Sax.
An exceptional saxophone, the LIMITED EDITION ALTO SAX makes use of the past to prepare for the future, always in tune with the present. This new model is exclusively sold in outfit with its limited edition mouthpiece, case, grenadilla wood plug and the « Sax Revolutions » DVD.
