Fantastic 5 Digit Selmer Mark VI in Beautiful Shape

This is a gorgeous, original condition Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax in American style engraving, serial number 76768. This alto is about as clean as they come. It was recently freshly repadded and ships in perfect playing shape; a fantastic horn for players and collectors alike.

 

Take a look at the photos and feel free to drool. This horn looks incredible, with excellent coverage of its original lacquer. There's mild lacquer from normal use, mostly on the back side of the tube and bell, where it may rest against the player during play, but that's it. Amazingly, there are no previous repairs to this alto, and that includes no resolders. This is extremely rare for a Mark VI, especially one from such an early vintage. The neck has also never been pulled down, and it shows the matching serial number stamped in it.

 

This alto was repadded at the end of 2020 by another shop, and the work is top notch. It has a new set of kangaroo leather pads with metal Selmer S80 style domed resonators. The action is crisp and tight under your fingers, it honestly feels like a new horn. Our shop has checked it over and given the seal of approval, it really is ready to go for its next owner's enjoyment.

 

This Mark VI plays with a sweet, darker tone, with a cool easy blowing nature. It takes your air effortlessly and responds quickly to even the most subtle streams of air. It's a sweet player for jazz and ballads, but you'll have no problem when you need to get loud either. Ships complete with original wood end plug and in original case.
