Selmer Adolphe Sax

Serial numbers tend to jump around a bit and a precise serial number/date chart is not known for this model. Some instruments were stamped H. Selmer some were not. All were stamped Adolphe Sax 84 Rue Myrha. Some instruments were assembled by salvaging parts from the old Adolphe Sax saxes and other were put togther using parts from the Selmer St. Louis Gold Metal models.

Mark VII

Mark VII is only applicable for alto and tenor saxophones. Selmer never made a Mark VII model for soprano, bari, sopranino or bass sax. For these instrument types, the Mark VI production model was continued until 1980 when the factory was completely retooled for the Super Action 80 series.
