The Reference line of alto and tenor saxophones are truly built in the spirit of the Mark VI and Balanced Action saxophones of decades past, but they have taken their place as integral entries in the saxophone market. Constructed in the same brass alloy as the Series III, they are quick responding with a full sound. They combine the quick response of the Series III with the resonant properties of the best Series II saxophones. The key ergonomics are also greatly improved over generations past.
