SeleS Axos

When Selmer Paris announced this horn a couple of years ago, there was much speculation and many rumours about it. Hopefully the following information directly from Dave Kessler—whose family business is a Selmer Pro Shop—will set the record straight:

To respond to the ever-changing needs of musicians, Henri Selmer Paris has created the new brand SeleS. The SeleS brand provides a range of instruments adapted to various budgets. To do this, Henri Selmer Paris has invested heavily in research and development which has allowed the company to streamline their manufacturing process and to standardize certain procedures. The company has also invested in new manufacturing tools in order to optimize production time. Furthermore, external industrial collaborations enable Henri Selmer Paris to offer a larger range of instruments.

Instruments made using the recent technological and industrial innovations will appear under the brand SeleS, created for this occasion by the Selmer Family. The Henri Selmer Paris brand will still continue to be wholly manufactured in the Mates-la-Ville factory using the Selmer Paris tradition.

Description

The SeleS line of instruments from Selmer Paris were designed to offer legendary Selmer Paris performance at a more affordable price point. Selmer brought in new manufacturing techniques and established outside manufacturing partnerships in order to achieve this goal. The “core” of the Axos is pure Selmer! It has a wonderfully rich tonal center with excellent response, projection and intonation.

The outside manufacturing partnerships (though Selmer keeps the details closely guarded) are done to provide quality with affordability. Even the most experienced technicians will struggle to identify which parts are Selmer made and which are done through these partnerships. First and foremost, the Axos is a French Made Saxophone. This is NOT an Asian made saxophone as many might believe.

The quality of the Axos is in line with the top end Selmer Paris saxophones. It’s performance style sits in between the Series II and Series III saxophones with a lighter response than the II and a thicker center than the III. All in all, the Axos is a marvelous achievement and exemplifies the Selmer Paris sound. (Hits: 1039)
