HELP, I Want One!

1963 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax in original lacquer, serial number 111898. This alto shows moderate wear for its age, and is overall in excellent physical condition. It is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete repad, and will ship in perfect adjustment with all new pads and material.


The “front” of this alto looks very nice, as you can see in the photos. There is more lacquer wear on the back side of the instrument, where it may rest against the player during play. Despite the lacquer wear, there absolutely no signs of trauma. In fact, there is just 1 resoldered joint, on the upper post of the low C/Eb key assembly. The horn has been played, but never abused. The neck is original to the horn, with matching serial number. It has much of the original factory paint intact around the “S” of the octave key, and has only been slightly pulled down in the past.


As stated, this alto is getting a fresh repad from our repair shop. It will be fully disassembled and cleaned, and we'll replae all pads, using premium firm leather pads and seamless metal resonators. We'll also replace all key adjustment corks and felts, and optimize spring tensions and key heights throughout. Once complete, this alto will be in perfect playing shape, ready to give its next owner years of enjoyment.
