After 100 years of innovation, design, and manufacturing of the saxophone, Henri SELMER Paris redefines the modern identity of the tenor saxophone with the Supreme.
The creation of the Supreme embodies the culmination of one century of expertise, combined with a perfectly mastered manufacturing process that lives up to the ambitions of the SELMER company.
The Supreme rises above musical genres. It has all the qualities common to the models that preceded it, meeting the desires of all saxophonist profiles: beauty and care in the creation of the Balanced Action, the legendary suppleness of the Mark VI, the ease of the Super Action 80 Serie II, the precision and elegance of the Serie III, and the power and roundness of the Reference. It is characterized by a perfectly balanced accuracy, infinite sound colours, and a great ease of response. It hides the natural and inherent constraints of the saxophone, the playing limitations are non-existent. Its roundness and projection capacity make it an instrument that is both traditional and resolutely modern. The refinement and care taken in its manufacture, as well as
its entirely corrected ergonomics, reveal an enjoyment and evidence of playing that has never been seen before.
