HELP, I Want One!

Full Saxquest Overhaul

This is a later vintage, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone, serial number 219470. This tenor has been completely restored in the Saxquest repair shop and plays like a new horn again. You'd be hard pressed to find a Mark VI in perfect playing shape for a lower price!


This tenor shows a fair amount of lacquer wear, as seen in the photos, but it is original lacquer an has never been refinished. It was completely overhauled in our repair shop by George Bunk. George removed any past dings or dimples, and did a couple resolders on some of the lower body keyguards. His work is so good, you probably won't see them unless you know what to look for. Using premium firm leather pads and original style brown plastic resonators, this Mark VI has been restored to factory perfect playing shape. The keywork is smooth and crisp under your fingers, and it truly feels like a new horn again.


Sonically, this Mark VI plays with a tight, focused core sound, slightly warmer overall but not overly dark. Good projection and a nice edge that cuts well. This is a good all-around tenor that can sit in well in any musical situation.
