A major favorite among jazz saxophonists, the Reference 54 tenor saxophone offers a rich throaty sound that even "barks" well in the lower register. The keywork of the Selmer 74 tenor saxophone is extremely fluid and reacts well to even the most wicked licks. Complete with shaped flight case, Selmer Paris Super Session mouthpiece, cap and ligature, and care products. Join the legions of jazz saxophonists that have rediscovered the sound of the legendary Mark VI and have made the Selmer 74 Reference 54 tenor saxophone their horn of choice. The Reference 54 tenor takes its inspiration from a 1958 mid-70,000 serial number Mark VI. It plays, feels, and looks like a vintage Selmer, including longer bell to improve intonation and a matte finish.



Brand History:
In 1885 following graduation from the Conservatoire de Paris, Henri Selmer began making reeds, mouthpieces, and clarinets in Paris.  In 1898, Henri’s brother, Alexandre left for the US and began selling clarinets as he toured with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.  These instruments would gain in popularity in Europe and America, winning awards at the 1900 Paris Exhibition and in 1904 St Louis World’s Fair.  In 1905, Henri took over the Barbier Company, a flute maker in Paris. 

Today, Selmer Paris is a leading manufacturer and the choice instrument of clarinet and saxophone professionals around the world.  The instruments continue to be hand-crafted in Paris with the fourth generation of Selmer family members leading the company.
