Sell-mer's review of Selmer Reference 36 Tenor

★★☆☆☆

“Looks great, plays fair to poor”

Written on: 22/09/2017 by Sell-mer (1 review written)

The look and ergonomics of this horn are great but the playability and sound quality fall short. I had my horn set up by one of the best in the business but it never met my expectations in terms of playability and sound. I struggled to find the point where the instrument got out of my way and the music flowed. I was told the octave pip was the issue and addressed that. No improvement. The sound was pretty generic without too much character. I finally sold the horn since I have better alternatives at my disposal. Would not recommend to anyone unless you spend a considerable amount of time with the horn and thoroughly play test. Good marketing but fair to poor performance was my experience.
