Jim takes a look at the Selmer Paris Reference 54 Alto Saxophones
Author: Sax .co.uk
I use a cannonball vb it works really well I have never worked hard to play it and btw you have a great sound who are your influences
stop drewling over these saxophones just get the horn and practice. you will sound the same on any sax it is a waste of time comparing sounds
Man , You have the ideal job !
lol careless whisper beginning i luv it- the musician and the horns sound great.
hai, which one is better, p mauriat greg olsby edition or this selmer reference 54?
just great. thanks.
How would you compare it to a Yamaha 62?
Great video, what mouthpiece did you use with this amazing saxophone?
i found a vintage antique finish reference 54 in a gray color rather than a gold color. i’m a little skeptical of it because i haven’t seen any other reference 54 like this one in eBay or on woodwind brass wind. do you know if this sax is genuine?
I appreciate the high video quality looks awesome.
You guys have a lot of Saxsess
Very nice video.
Could you please help understand the main difference between the Selmer Paris Reference 54
and Selmer Paris Sireous 2 and Sireous 3 62 Jubilee Edition? What are the differences?
Witch one of the is the high end one?
if i didnt have to pay for college I would buy one of these…
I want to import selmer saxophone alto from your shop kindly give your phone number
My dream sax
How would you rate this saxophone from the 1 to 10 ten be the best
Nothing like that Selmer Sound. Still the best saxophones in the world, IMO.
I play a 1955 63000 MK VI Alto and have tried the reference 54 and was not very impressed ? If the early VI’s are the most coveted and desired Saxophones on earth then why would Selmer not just remanufacture what was already perfection and not try to improve it? New “Coca Cola” yes…that was an awesome idea. Does Steinway keep on trying to reinvent the piano? No. Has anyone improved the violin since Strad?
Vintage looks nice but the darker tone turned me off
I have got my Ref 54 for two years now. I am loving it more and more. It just sounds very good, and easy to play too.
Hi Jim , I want to ask you which of the two version did you enjoy the most . The vintage finish or the gold finish ?
the wood stone sax is closer to the mark vi than the reference 54
Great…. :S … Now I want one…
Hello there, I was wondering if you would do a demonstration video of the Sakkusu tenor saxophone on your website, I am interested it but have no reviews to base it on. Thanks 🙂
He played Careless Whisper, I’m sure of it
which one was used in alf theme song best sax by far,which model is closest to that
Thanks for the video, Jim! When I first heard that sound, immediately, vintage Selmer Mark VI came to mind! Wow! Interesting though that the original Mark VI didn’t have the extra high F# key but the Vintage 54 does! Beautiful horn!
Good review. Tone is warm… but stuffy on both horns! I have never played a Ref 54 that didn’t sound stuffy. Perhaps this is what Jim is referring to when he says “it’ll be interesting to see how these horns age”.
sounds like a plastic horn
Is there any other lig other than a Rovner that will work for a Beechler 7 metal alto mouthpiece? I just don’t like the Rovner.
i cant decide which one i want. the deep gold or vintage. which is better?
What mouthpiece did you used together with horn in this video?
Quite a difference between the two horns. The vintage finished horn has a much darker sound to my ear. Perhaps the mpc/reed combination was bettered suited to that particular horn to produce that particular sound. In comparison, the lacquered model sounded somewhat held back given the mpc/reed combination.
Can make a video on the Selmer Paris Series III Model 62 Jubilee Edition Alto Saxophone?
