YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!

The Supreme Modéle 2022 alto celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Modéle 22, the first saxophone to be manufactured by Henri Selmer Paris workshops in 1922.

Produced in a limited series of 641 pieces, in reference to the number of parts needed to assemble it, this new version of the Supreme alto benefits from the same acoustic, mechanical and ergonomic qualities, but is distinguished by a specific, innovative and creative design.

Its stylish design features a completely unique matt dark gold finish which in turn contrasts with various shades of black on the guards, the body-to-bell grenadilla wood medallion, the pads, and the mother-of-pearls.  Beyond this one of its stand-out features is the Art Déco style engraving, beautifully evoking Paris during the Roaring Twenties, and showcasing the very distinct architecture that is recognizable around the world.  The gold-plated thumb rests, neck receiver clamping ring, and body-to-bell brace complete the finishing touches to this limited-edition series, where no expense has been spared.  Each model has its own unique number within the series engraved under the neck receiver.

Staff Preview

Having only just found out about this instrument a few days before its worldwide release I find myself once again in a position witnessing further history unfolding!  The same thing happened when Selmer unveiled the new Supreme, and now this limited run (641 pieces sound a lot, but believe me, these will get snapped up!) of a 100th-anniversary model.  It really doesn’t get bigger than this.  Brace yourselves though, this is not a cheap sax!  It is a Supreme with all the bells and whistles attached and will surely appeal to those players who have an absolute passion for saxophone history.  I can’t wait to get my hands on one in the days to come!
