Saxophone Selmer Paris Reference 54
Model 74 Selmer (Reference 54) Bb Tenor Saxophone: Inspired by the Mark VI model released in 1954, Selmer presents the Reference 54 tenor saxophone. A tenor saxophone that integrates the Mark VI's legendary acoustic characteristics with innovative modern keywork. The Reference tenor takes its inspiration from a 1958 mid-70,000 serial number Mark VI. Musicians and aficionados consider these the most valuable. The Reference plays and feels like a vintage Selmer, including longer bell to improve Intonation and a dark, warm lacquer finish. In fact, one of the professionals at IAJE back in January had a 76,000 Mark VI. Comparing them side-by-side we all thought that the Reference possessed a fuller, richer sound than that particular VI.
