-Selmer saxophones were introduced as the "Modele 22", in 1922.
-Updated, though still with very small bores, the "Modele 26", in 1926.
-The famous "Cigar Cutter" models were made for only 4 years, 1930-1933.
-The "Radio Improved" and "Selmer Super Sax" (SSS) were similar to the Cigar Cutter, with the Cigar Cutter removed. These were made until 1935.
-The "Balanced Action" were the first Selmer saxophones with the offset keywork. Selmer introduced them in 1935 and made about 10,000 of them
-The "Super Balanced Action" followed and was built from 1948 until 1954. It is said that they play similar to the later Mk. VI's which were smaller and required less from the player, but still possessed the "Selmer Sound".
-The World Famous Selmer Mark VI alto and tenor saxes were made from 1954 until 1973, Mark VI sopranos and baritones continued until the "S.A. 80".
-The short lived Mark 7 altos and tenors, were made from 1974 until 1979.
-The "Super Action 80" saxes were introduced in 1980 and were upgraded to "Super Action 80, Series II" in 1986.  They are now, well into "Series III".
-Additionally, they now have a "Reference'35" and "Reference'54", which are the bore tapers of the 1935 Balanced Action and 1954 Mark VI, using the hole placement (improved intonation) and key work (more ergonomic) of the latest Series III units currently in production.
