HELP, I Want One!

Overhauled & Ready to Ship!

This is a freshly restored, original finish Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax, serial number 199344. This alto is in great shape and has just from from the Saxquest repair shop, freshly overhauled and ready to go!

 

This Mark VI has just been restored in our shop by Chris Funck. It has all new pads, fitted with original style brown plastic resonators, with new corks and felts throughout. The keywork has been precisely regulated and it feels like a new horn! The action is tight and crisp, while remaining fluid.

 

Physically, the horn shows minor past dent work in the bottom bow area, which has been done extremely well. The original silver plating is solid and in the 90-95% range. This does feature original European style engraving on the bell, and has its original neck.

 

I find this alto to be a very expressive instrument, with a tight tonal core and overall fairly free blowing characteristics. The silver seems to warm up its sound, without dampening down any of the openness and natural aggressiveness of this alto. It projects great and plays with a strong voice.
