Vintage Original Lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI Alto Sax High F#, Serial #170550
Mark Vi Alto - High F#
This is a vintage original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax, serial number 170550. If you are looking for a real player and don't mind a little bit of scruff this Mark VI is perfect. It does show some history of some past repair. A few smaller re-solders on lower key guard feet but nothing to major. The previous owner of the sax also installed a electronic pick up on it at some point. We are currently in the process of removing pick-up the right way and with a flush plug and silver solder.
The Mark VI is currently in the Saxquest shop being cleaned up and re-padded. It will soon be in perfect playing condition with a new set of premium leather pads, brown plastic resonators, new corks, felts and a precise regulation.
This particular Mark VI is in a great serial number range if you are looking for something with a slightly more centered sound. The pitch balance on this vintage is also excellent. It also features a high F# key which was a special order only item at the time this saxophone was made.
Please stay tuned for more information and pictures of this horn once we complete the overhaul and neck repair.
