Référence 54

(Model 74F)

Polished Brass, Rose Gold Lacquered,  Engraved

Finished just like the Référence 36 Tenor


Référence 54
(Model 74)

Brushed brass, 
Antique Matte Lacquered with Dark Accents

This is an unusual but striking finish designed to mimic the look of a well cared for, but seasoned,  Mark VI saxophone.It's look grows on you. Hides fingerprints exceptionally well.

Référence 36
(Model 84)

Polished brass, Engraved, Rose Gold Lacquered

This is the traditional finish of the older Mark VI and Balanced Action saxophones which is rarely seen today. The color is rich and warm... not unlike the sound of the Référence 36 saxophone. Bell and bow are fully engraved.
