Elevate Your Performance with Selmer Paris
Selmer Paris introduces the Axos alto saxophone, offering advancing players an accessible gateway to the world of professional saxophones. Built in the same factory as the company's renowned models, the 52 Axos combines traditional craftsmanship with modern design and manufacturing techniques to create an affordable instrument that embodies the signature sound and playability expected from Selmer Paris saxophones. The result is a saxophone with fluid and ergonomic keywork, impeccable intonation, and exceptional response across the entire range, including the altissimo register. Effortlessly play in the low register and project a round fullness in the midrange, while enjoying Selmer's signature tonal richness and projection.
Axos: A New Era of Professional Saxophones
Axos saxophones are meticulously crafted in the Henri Selmer Paris factory in Mantes-la-Ville, France, the very same facility that has produced all Selmer Paris saxophones since 1922. Continuing the legacy of fine artisanal craftsmanship, Axos saxophones integrate modern industrial methodologies, incorporating computer-assisted design for efficient production and strategic outsourcing of keywork components to trusted overseas partners. With the goal of making Selmer Paris quality accessible to more saxophonists, Axos instruments feature optimized keywork for smooth playability and mechanical durability. It's important to note that Axos saxophones are crafted using the same high-quality metals as their Selmer Paris counterparts.
The Selmer Legacy of Excellence and Innovation
To understand the profound influence of Selmer on modern saxophone designs, it's essential to delve into the company's rich history. Founded by clarinetist Henri Selmer in 1885, Henri Selmer Paris began as a small workshop producing reeds and mouthpieces. Over time, the company expanded into instrument repair and modifications, eventually leading to the design and manufacture of clarinets. In 1900, Selmer opened a retail shop in New York, marking the beginnings of Selmer USA. In 1922, Selmer introduced its first saxophone, the Model 22, and went on to release groundbreaking designs such as the Balanced Action, Super Action, Mark VI, and Reference 54, which have set the standard for modern saxophones. These legendary horns can be heard on iconic jazz recordings by renowned artists. Selmer USA and Henri Selmer Paris offer a comprehensive range of woodwind and brass instruments, delivering exceptional value from student to professional levels. At Irvine Art and Music, we are proud to present Selmer's enduring legacy of quality and innovation.
