Tour of the Selmer Paris Factory

Posted by DanForshaw Category: Category 1, VLOG Tag: , ,

In June 2019 I took up a long standing invitation to make an episode of #DansVlog at the Selmer Paris factory, (which is just outside Paris in a town called Mantes-la-Ville.)

It was an incredible experience and I am so grateful to Selmer and in particular Florent Milhaud and Sabrani Belardi for organising my visit. Every Selmer saxophone since 1921 has been made in this factory. ¬†That’s the saxophones of Coleman Hawkins, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Michael Brecker, Branford Marsalis and so on…

Enjoy this special episode of #DansVlog and if you can, take the opportunity to book your own tour of the Selmer Factory, one of the most important buildings in the history of the saxophone.
