The Selmer Paris Reference 54 alto goes far beyond the spirit of the Mark VI. It takes all the finest qualities of a great VI and adds the kind of ergonomics and scale players of that era could only dream of. The neck taper allows for maximum flexibility and tonal expression. Dark Gold lacquer is reminiscent of the original Mark VI and the only Selmer Paris saxophone to have this lacquer color.

The Reference series of saxophones are truly built in the spirit of the Mark VI and Balanced Action saxophones of decades past, but they have taken their place as integral entries in the saxophone market. Constructed in the same brass alloy as the Series III, they are quick responding with a full sound. They combine the quick response of the Series III with the resonant properties of the best Series II saxophones. The key ergonomics are also greatly improved over generations past.
