HELP, I Want One!

This is a freshly overhauled, original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax in American style engraving, serial number 147623. A true '67 vintage Mark VI, this alto is right in the most desirable of vintages for an alto. It was just restored in our shop, and is ready to go.

 

The original lacquer on this alto shows mild wear from normal use, but the horn has obviously never been abused. There are no dents or dings, and amazingly, no resoldered joints. The bell flare is perfect and the original neck has never been pulled down. A couple tiny pings in the bottom bow and the sax is dent free now. This alto was just repadded in our shop by George Bunk, using premium firm leather pads and TM Custom oversized flat brass screwback resonators. All material is new, and the sax has been precisely adjusted for comfort, response, and intonation.

 

Five seconds with this horn will convince you as to why this serial number range has been so popular. This alto can do it all. Big, dynamic sound with lots of punch and presence, while retaining a fat warm core that doesn't thin out even at full volume in the palm keys. At the same time, you can dial it back and play ballads with a sweet, sultry sound that oozes warmth and color. Ships in its original case as pictured.
