Excellent Players Horn - Late Vintage Mark VI
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. The Mark VI was freshly overhauled in the Saxquest shop in late 2019 and is in perfect playing condition.
 
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. 
 
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. As it sits currently the horn is in solid condition but it does show a history of past repair body and solder repair. A previous repair tech added a brass patch on one side of the original neck. This saxophone was mechanically overhauled late last year. It shows off a fresh set of Valentino premium leather pads with metal domed resonators. All of the felt and cork work is also brand new. 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 is a very nice responsive player. It keeps a beautifully precise sound while it maintains the smooth free blowing response desired in a good Mark VI. A fantastic “player's horn” for the gigging professional looking for a quality Mark VI at the lower end of the price spectrum. Ships in perfect playing condition with contoured case.
