Hello.

I have been playing alto sax for 7 years now and I purchased a jazz mouthpiece a few years ago that I am pleased with. I am looking for another one and I came across a brand known as Selma. Is this a good brand or is it just a Selmer knockoff? Please let me know.

Thanks,
Tyler

Never heard of it. But if you can test the "Selma" and it plays well for you, it doesn't matter what it's called. I just wouldn't buy it blindly.

Or, why not stick with the brand you have, since you're pleased with it?

Are you sure it is not just a Typo? There are also cheap Asian horns named Selman. The only Selma I know of is my 3rd grade teacher and a town in south Alabama.

15 seconds on Google proved it to be another product of the PRC.

She quit teaching to become a mouthpiece maker because there's more money in it. :whistle:

The mouthpiece, unfortunately, does not have a brand name on it. I asked my band director about the Selma and she said she had never heard of it, so I expect it to be a Selmer knock off. I found a Henri Selmer Paris mouthpiece I am going to buy. I was just looking around and came across the Selma and thought I would find out more information on it.

Unfortunately, the mouthpiece I have does not have a brand name on it. Also, I am looking toward expanding my horizons and trying out different mouthpieces for different sounds. I found a Henri Selmer Paris that I am going to buy, but, during my search, I came across the Selma and I thought I would find out some more info on the brand. Thanks to you all. I appreciate it.
