HELP, I Want One!

Pristine Collector's Quality Tenor & a Great Player Too!!

This is the real deal. This is a pristine condition, original lacquer 1961 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor sax, serial number 92055. This horn looks incredible with 99% original lacquer intact. It looks like it stepped out of time from 55 years ago.

 

You'd be hard pressed to find a pretty Mark VI of this vintage. The lacquer shows only light wear here and there. There are some scratches on the bottom bow and some light lacquer loss on the body tube over from the neck strap ring, as seen in the photos. There is one tiny ping in the bell which we will try to carefully remove during our overhaul. There was previously a similar ping in the neck which was all ready taken out. The neck is original to the horn, with matching serial number, and it has never been pulled down. It still shows all of the factory paint around the “S” of the octave key!

 

Unsurprisingly, this tenor came to us in all original, factory pads. As such, we are going to completely overhaul the horn, using all new premium firm leather pads and material. Originally having brown plastic resonators, we will probably use metals going forward, unless the buyer chooses otherwise. We'll set the sax up perfectly and have it ready for the next owner.

 

In addition to its great looks, this tenor is a tremendous player. Warm and colorful, free and responsive, with a lot of punch, this tenor can do it all. It can play big and powerful or soft and sultry equally well. This can be a power horn or a ballad horn, really whatever you need it to do. This is a fantastic Mark VI for players or collectors alike. Even the original case is in amazing shape!
