Selmer has one of the most colorful lineages in the landscape of instrument manufacturing. Beginning with a multi-generational association with the French army, the consistently musical Selmer family has extended its influence from Paris to New York City and many points around and between. Selmer is chiefly famous for its professional instruments. As an example, much of the history of jazz has been performed on the Mark VI tenor saxophone, and it remains one of the most popular saxophones for the working professional. But Selmer's reach extends far past the Mark VI. Selmer's current line features professional clarinets, flutes, saxophones, oboes and bassoons, each of which categories produces some of the finest instruments available. They also feature a full line of accessories for all of these instrument categories.
