Description: Bb Tenor
Manufacturer: Selmer
Model: 74óReference 54
Serial #: ?
Finish: "Antiqued" lacquer (according to the Selmer, Paris website)

The following is the description of the Reference 54 tenor that was provided by Kessler & Sons on their website. Kessler Music is a Selmer Pro Shop.

"Released in 2001, the Reference series tenor sax was the completion of the modern Selmer tenor design concepts. Selmer had gone from being a manufacturer who made only 1 professional model saxophone to making concurrently 4 different models of tenor. Selmer realized that players wanted more options and wanted these playing options with the quality provided by Selmer Paris. The Series II and Series III are both great modern horns, but many players still wanted the tonal performance of the vintage Selmers.

As there were really 2 vintage Selmer tenors of equal fanatical respect, the Mark VI and the Balanced Action, Selmer decided to offer a modern horn with tonal characteristics of both models with the Reference 54 and Reference 36 tenors.

The Reference 54 gains its name as they refer to 1954, the year Mark VI production started, as their inspiration for the tone and playing characteristics for the Reference 54 tenor. Of the two Reference tenor sax models, the 54 uses a slightly tighter bore for a more centered and focused tone."
