Comments about Selmer Reference 54 Model 74 Tenor Saxophone:

I bought this saxophone from Samash in NY, had it shipped to DFW and had a friend hand-carry to me all the way to Kenya, meaning that I never tested it before buying. It was worth the gamble! Once I started massaging the keys of this baby, I knew I was home-free. Absolutely beautiful sound with an amazing response.

I would only recommend that you get a good mouthpiece for it. The S-80C wasn't doing it for me as it's got quite a dull sound. I bought a Freddie Gregory mouthpiece and it just did wonders to the sound.

Just like my 1958 Mk. VI (maybe better)

        Comments about Selmer Reference 54 Model 74 Tenor Saxophone:

        I bought my Ref 54 from Sam Ash about 5 years ago. Still delighted by it's tone and playability. I had 3 Mk. VI horns over the years, all bought new, and this may be better than any of them. It was a bit less $$ 5 years ago, but buying a horn like this is always a good investment. It's value will only go up over the years.
