The result of 8 years of research, design and development. The Supreme has been built from the ground up, with the Selmer team and their associated professional musicians finessing every last detail. From the key angles, to the tone hole positioning and sizes, all the way down to the neck screw mechanism. This is no re-design of a previous model, it's a brand new design for a new century in the Selmer company's history.

This is truly a new generation of Sax and a huge leap forward in design and playability. I have been playing on a 1963 Mk VI as my main go to sax, mainly for the sound. I have owned many good Sax\'s from a Yamaha 875EX custom alto to Yanagisawa and loads of brands and models in-between, but have always returned to my MkVI.
I can only say try this out for yourself the ergonomics in the new key layout is exceptional for reliably playing at speed. The intonation throughout is very good and amazingly in tune in the low bell keys I don\'t have to worry about low D and below tuning wise. Likewise the palm keys and altissimo speak with ease with little or no correction for tuning required.
The core sound is full and remarkably similar to MKVI\'s and vintage horns, but it is very flexible and I think mouthpiece selection will have a larger influence on the tone.
This is a very free blowing instrument and I would highly recommend it to anyone, and I would even say I would suggest this sax over a vintage horn, as this is everything a six is and bucket loads more.
This sax has freed me from worrying about playing in tune allowing me to focus on the music. I also purchased this sax for my wife and the intonation between the two sax\'s is amazing unison sounds like one instrument even in the palm keys so that old joke of semitone being two alto\'s playing in unison is now dead.
This Sax is Supreme by name and Supreme in deed, so now go and try one for yourself.
