This is a very nice looking, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto sax, serial number 177361. This alto features the more desirable American style engraving, and has obviously been well cared for over its entire life. It has new pads and is ready for a new owner to enjoy it for the next haul.

 

The original lacquer stands at a solid 90-95% intact, with only light wear from normal play. Pads look pretty new, fitted with brown plastic resonators, and the horn hasn't seen much play time since the last repad. This sax will get a fresh cleaning and pro set up from our repair shop before shipping, where we'll check all the pad seats and seals, and replace any material not up to our standards. There's a couple minor dings and dimples in the bottom bow which we will also remove during our adjustment, but the horn has seen no serious past repair or trauma. The neck is original, and it too has 2 minor dings which we'll take out.

 

This sax plays with a clearly, easy response, slightly darker on the sound spectrum. It takes your air well in all registers. I found its versatility to be very good, and you can get its tone to go quite a bit brighter or darker with the right mouthpieces. Really opens up a lot of options for the player, for the variety of settings you might find yourself in. Ships in a good Selmer hardshell Flight case.
