Very Sweet! Original Lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI Bari Sax Low Bb, Serial #142286
Overhauled and Ready to Play
This is an awesome Vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI Low Bb baritone sax in original lacquer, serial number 142286. The bari was just overhauled in the Saxquest shop by Derick Trammel and George Bunk. It is now playing like a total dream. Regarding sound color it is a little bit of a brighter player. It takes the air in quick and has a highly precise balance from top to bottom. The palm keys have an exceptionally full sound and really sing out. The outstanding response and control on this bari make it an absolute blast to play.
The bari has a nice shine to it and the original finish is perfectly complemented by its crisp engraving. Its bell flare is in perfect condition and has never been pulled down. The bow is also in fantastic original condition along with the bow cap. There is some history of repair to the upper J/U tube area. The work was done professionally in the Saxquest and is hard to spot if you do not know what to look for.
The Saxquest professional overhaul put the bari in perfect playing condition. It shows off a brand new set of Valentino pads, brown plastic resonators, new corks, felts and a precise key regulation. You are going to be hard pressed to find a better playing Mark VI bari.
