HELP, I Want One!

Ships w/ Fresh Overhaul

This is a gorgeous original Selmer Mark VI soprano sax dating to 1966, serial number 136387. This horn has greater than 95% original lacquer intact and looks fantastic. It will ship with a fresh pad job from our repair shop, and brings years of joy to its new owner.

 

This sax has been meticulously well cared for over its life. The only previous repair I can find is some very minor work in the bell flare, where one side was previously bent up ever-so-slightly. No other dents or prior repairs anywhere on the horn, including the neck area, and no resolders. A custom front F mechanism has been added to “modernize” the horn a bit, and the key feels very comfortable under your fingers.

 

This sax was last repadded a number of years ago, and the pads are starting to age. To really make it perfect, we're going to perform our full pro overhaul on the sax. We'll replace all pads and material, using premium firm leather pads and original style brown nylon resonators. We'll optimize the action, key heights, and spring tensions throughout, so when you receive it, it will be in absolute perfect playing shape, backed by our full year mechanical warranty.

 

I love these mid-60s vintage Mark VI sopranos, and this one did not disappoint. It plays with a very open feel, and a fast and lively response. It takes your air very efficiently without sacrificing a warm, colorful center. Has plenty of “giddy-up” when you push the horn hard, and projection is great. A really fun playing horn. Ships in a Protec case.
