We service everything that we sell. I have been playing sax, clarinet, and flute since 1951. I have been repairing instruments since 1978. My last major concert was for a host of pretty impressive guests, Including former President Bill Clinton, when he was in Boston with Senator John Kerry for a fund-raising event for Senator Ted Kennedy. I Played in the 22-piece John Payne saxophone choir at the Park Plaza Castle. Security was so tight, The secret service did background checks On each musician And we had to leave our instruments at the door To be searched by white house staff.

The Series III saxophones epitomize speed.

Lightning-quick response and flawless ergonomics make these saxophones move; allowing you to perform at the speeds you need in these hyper-fast times.

Instead of traditional brass, these saxophones are built on a platform with a slightly higher copper content-creating a rich warm tone that is automatic from the first breath into the instrument.

Always committed to serving the needs of students, music educators, amateurs, and professionals, Selmer has grown steadily over the years, becoming the industry leader recognized for craftsmanship and quality. Our story is both unique and fascinating.

The Selmer family traces its roots back to the 18th century rural Lorraine region of France with Johannes Jacobus Zelmer.

Enlisting in the French army provided a means of moving families from the country to the city. For three generations Zelmer men served in the same regiment, while the boys, too young to be soldiers, played in the band.

Jean-Jacques Selmer (son of Johannes Jacobus), in addition to changing the spelling of the family name, ascended to the rank of drum major. The military afforded great opportunities for education and travel.

When Charles-Frederic Selmer (son of Jean-Jacques) died in 1878 he left sixteen children, five surviving to adulthood.

Of these, Henri and Alexandre graduated from the Paris conservatory as accomplished clarinetists.

Henri went on to perform in the famed Garde Republicaine band and the Opera Comique. By the early 1900s Henri had opened shop at Place Dancourt in Paris to meet the demand for his handmade reeds and mouthpieces.

Soon repair work and customizing led to the manufacturing of clarinets.

From 1895 to 1910, Alexandre Selmer served as principal clarinetist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

At the turn of the century, a small retail store was opened in New York City for selling the family wares. Selmer clarinets prospered after winning a gold medal at the Saint Louis exposition of the 1904 Worlds Fair.

In 1918 Alexandre returned to Paris to assist Henri in their growing family business, leaving an employee, George Bundy, the rights to distribute Selmer products in the United States.
