Fresh Saxquest Regulation

This is a fantastic mid-60's vintage Selmer Mark VI tenor sax, serial number 126263. This tenor is a tremendous player and is perfect for the gigging professional wanting the classic Mark VI sound at a reasonable price. It is a true power horn and comes freshly adjusted.

 

This tenor was relacquered long ago, and shows a fair amount of lacquer wear since then, as seen in the photos. The work was done well, with no major buffing, and the detail in the engraving remains crisp and defined. This tenor was completely adjusted and set up in the Saxquest repair shop about a year ago. Saxquest's Chris Funck did the work, replacing a majority of the pads and regulating the instrument throughout. It feels great, with a smooth, effortless action under your fingers. Key heights and spring tensions have all been optimized. Chris removed a few minor dings in the bottom bow, and the sax shows no dents currently. It does not have its original neck, but does have a neck from the same vintage, with serial number 123505.

 

This is truly an outstanding playing Mark VI. It plays with a warm, but not overly dark tone, and features an explosive amount of power and projection. It takes your air very well and creates a wall of sound with very little effort. An amazing Mark VI that won't break the bank.
