deQuelery Custom Series

The premium choice

Material and design

The deQuelery Custom Series saxophones are hand hammered out of high grade brass, red copper, bronze or a combination of these materials. A classic design from the ’50s is applied; the best instruments date back to that era. We added many features and design adaptations to meet modern standards.


The Custom Series are suited for professionals and advanced musicians. You simply allow no compromise when it comes to your instrument. The Custom Series is an excellent choice when you need a quality instrument. On stage, in the studio or anywhere you need the best of breed. Our Custom Series have it all; sound, looks and quality!


The possibilities of the Custom Series are almost endless. Gold and silver lacquer, raw brass, aged brass, satin gold or silver finish, full body engravings or any combination of these between body, guards and/or mechanics. We do most of the processing ourselves. Contact us for all possibilities!
