HELP, I Want One!

This is a wonderful condition, all original Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax, serial number 208809. This alto shows original lacquer better than 95% intact, and remarkably has no history of dent repair. It is in fantastic shape, available “as is” at a low price, or with the option to have us properly restore it.

 

As you can see in the photos, this Mark VI sports original American style engraving. There is lacquer wear on the usual touch points and some minor cosmetic wear from normal use, but absolutely no dents or previous dent repair, and that includes no resolders. The bottom bow, bell flare, and bell-to-body brace are all perfect, and the original neck has never been pulled down. You don't see them in this nice of physical condition very often anymore!

 

This alto came to us on mostly old pads, and it is well overdue for a fresh overhaul. In its current state, it is not playing very well, and definitely needs a repad. If you already have a preferred tech to do the work for you, we are offering it “as is” at a reduced price, but if you'd like us to restore it, we'll do the full job at the greatly reduced price of $750. This would include full disassembly and cleaning, all new pads and original style brown nylon resonators (or switch to metals if you prefer, no extra cost), new key adjustment corks and felts, and pro regulation. We'd get the sax back in factory new playing condition. Please expect a 6-8 week wait for the work to be completed.

 

This alto ships in its original hard shell Selmer case. The case is in near mint condition, and has a good leather case cover protecting it as well.
