Keyed to High F# - Vintage Tone
Pictured above is a vintage Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone in silver plate with a serial number of #69263 dating this one to about 1957. Featured on this alto is a lovely high F# key, making this a perfect middle ground for modern players looking for a vintage tone.
 
Physically, this saxophone is showing a lot of signs of wear, and the materials are in pretty rough shape, so we will include an overhaul with purchase of this alto. We will go through and replace all the pads, resonators, felts, corks and other materials and also address any lost motion or key clicks so that this horn is playing perfectly on its way out to you. The bow has had dent repair on it, but the rest of the horn seems to have avoided any further damages as there are no resolders visible.
 
Sonically this alto plays focused with a punchy sound, the silver seems to bring out the warmer qualities of this horn, giving it a rich harmonic quality in the upper register. This helps with projection and cutting through loud bands.
