This is one of those diamond in the roughs. This is a late vintage, original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor sax, serial number 230710. This tenor is a fantastic player and is going to be shipping with our full $1000+ overhaul. If anyone ever tells you that only the early Mark VI's are good players, this tenor begs to differ!

 

No words to be minced, the sax isn't the prettiest around, but the lacquer wear is all from honest playing. It is an original lacquer tenor and has never been refinished. Pads are not all that old, but they aren't a great quality pad, so we are going to take it apart and do it up right. We'll replace all pads and material, using original style brown plastic resos, and take out the tiny dings and dimples here and there in the sax. The neck does have a patch on one side, as seen in the photos, and we'll try to clean that up a bit too so that it will hopefully look nicer. This tenor does feature a high F# key, a somewhat rare find on a Mark VI, even one in the later range like this.

 

This Mark VI plays with a powerful voice and a lot of punch. It really rips in the middle and upper registers! I thought it was very versatile, not too dark nor too bright, allowing the player to shape your tone to the style you want to play with the proper mouthpiece/setup. A fantastic “player's horn” for the gigging professional looking for a quality Mark VI at the lower end of the price spectrum.
