New for 2022 and to celebrate 100 years of Saxophone production at Selmer, Paris the Modele 2022 Alto Sax is a limited edition model based on the recently released Supreme. With just 641 in production for the world-wide market* we are delighted to be offering a limited stock availability with pre-orders now available to be taken.
*The 641 quantity was chosen is in reference to the number of individual parts required to make these Saxophones.
What is the Modele 2022?
Featuring attractive engraving with it's references to the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles found in Paris during the 1920's, the Modele 2022 is completed with a matte dark gold finish and matte black chromed trim. Quite simply the Modele 2022 looks remarkable, it's the most beautiful looking modern Sax we've ever seen. The body, bore, key shaping and layout is all based on the new Selmer Supreme model, but it's the finishing touches and limited numbers which sets this Modele 2022 apart.
Design & Finish
The incredible attention to detail is what keeps Selmer at the pinnacle of Saxophone design and production, 100 years on from making their first Saxophones. The Modele 2022 features black leather pads, gold plated thumbrests, individually numbered parts and a stunning body to bell brace modelled on vintage microphones of the 20's.
Even the end stop is gorgeous! It is a grenadilla wood tapered stop with a brass ring and Modele 2022 engraving. The accompanying accessory pack echoes the engraving designs from the instrument and is more akin to opening a boutique quality garment of clothing than a Saxophone kit.
The Modele 2022 comes complete with a suitably stylish and unique case. Selmer also supply a Concept mouthpiece with the outfit which comes complete with a matte black ligature and cap. The instrument also comes with a gorgeous looking Selmer neck strap.
Modele 2022 - How It Plays
So far we've explained the aesthetics and design, but at the core of this Model 2022 is a stunning instrument to play. The tone is like liquid honey, smooth and even from the very bottom Bb to as high as you can take it.
Intonation on these (Modele 2022 & Supreme) is impeccable, with many common 'grey' areas of tone and pitch found on 99% of Saxophones being cleaned up and improved. There are no limits...this Saxophone can do it all. Any genre, any tempo, any tone colour.
