The Supreme alto “Modèle 2022” celebrates the 100th anniversary of the first saxophone to be manufactured in the Henri SELMER Paris workshops in 1922.
The sound of the Supreme is the result of a perfect balance between a roundness combined with an immense richness of timbre, an ideally distributed accuracy, an ease and a flexibility of play and a great power of projection. 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 exclusive matte dark gold finish is highlighted by the contrast of a palette of blacks on the guards, the body-to-bell grenadilla wood medallion, the pads and the mother-of-pearls. The patterns of its engraving, resolutely Art Déco, evoke the Paris of the Roaring Twenties, that saw the birth of the first SELMER saxophone.
