This Selmer 'Reference 54' Eb alto saxophone is ideal for the professional player or the advanced student looking for an amalgamation of a vintage sound and aesthetics with the reliability of modern saxes.
In the Reference 54, Selmer took inspiration from their hugely popular Mark VI - a strong centred sound with plenty of projection, whilst redesigning the neck, bore size and ergonomics. The result is an instantly recognisable sound in a sax that is a joy to play.
Compared to many vintage instruments, the key work on the Reference 54 is smooth and easy to play with a modern layout that improves tuning stability and makes side and palm keys a lot more accessible.
Wear & Tear Observations: This sax is in very good condition with limited signs of laquer wear or scratching. The palm keys have been customised with cork to raise the key heights and makes the sax more comfortable to play. This sax has been regularly serviced and has been checked over by our workshop ready for sale.
Service Notes: A pre delivery service/check will be undertaken prior to shipping. At busy periods this may entail a small delay. If this order is urgent please contact us as we are usually able to expedite.
