well cared for original lacquer VI

This is a classic 1970 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax with American style engraving, serial number 176584. This alto has been well cared for in its life and still shows great coverage of its original lacquer. Pads are in great shape, and this alto is ready for the long haul.

 

This alto is coming from a player who treated it well. The sax is in great shape, with typical lacquer wear for its age. There are a couple minor dings in the bottom bow area, which we will remove before shipping, and no signs of any major past repairs, including no resolders, which is extremely rare for a vintage VI. The original neck has never been pulled down or damaged. Pads have been replaced as needed, and all are fairly new with years of life still ahead of them. We will go through the horn before shipping to make sure everything is sealing properly and that all key heights and spring tensions are correct.

 

During play testing, I found this alto to be warmer than I expected. A lot of VI's in this range tend to a bit brighter, and while this horn plays with great projection and can produce plenty of volume, it stays warm and focused. This is a fantastic option for players wanting a quality, original lacquer Mark VI but can't spring for a 60's model. A really nice horn. Ships in its original case.
