The Hanson LX Saxophone is our tribute to the famous Selmer Mark VI. The LX is a true ‘players’ sax, it’s going to cost approximately half the going rate of a Mark VI, but tested along side one it will play and feel just as good if not better.
Starting at £2,200
The Hanson LX Saxophone has earned a reputation over the years as being an unbelievable ‘players Sax’, one that can easily stand up to being gigged hard and played regularly. We put this down to our blend of innovative and advanced production methods with classically inspired design. The recipe for our Hanson LX is to strip a 1954 Selmer Mark VI, strip it down to every single component part, invest in world leading analytical technology to inspect every component, and then build our own version using 21s century engineering and techniques. A legend reborn.

Fully Annealed Body, Bell and Neck
The fully annealed body, bell and neck allows for a more resonant sound with greater projection.
Premium Italian Pads
Our premium Italian pads are set to perfection using traditional shellac, ensuring there is a crisp ‘pop’ right down the sax and the lower notes are allowed to sing out.
self-adjusting spring-loaded screws and bearings
We’ve now made the self-adjusting spring-loaded screws and bearings from our LX model as standard on all our Saxophones. You’ll feel this difference in the rapid key action and you’ll love the reduced maintenance.
