Mark VI - Pro Players Special!
This is the perfect alto for the professional looking for a hand down knock out player. These later Mark VI altos tend to be a little brighter and more focused then the earlier vintage altos from the 1950's and early 60's. This one in particular takes in the air super quick and has a crisp and clear response. Sonically the sound of the sax is rich and warmly centered. It can be pushed very hard and played with a bright intensity when desired. This alto is ideal for anyone looking for a versatile jazz instrument or something for use in rock and funk settings. 
While it is not the prettiest horn in the shop its body is in solid physical condition. The lacquer is original and is nicely complemented by the floral engraving around the bell. It does show a typical amount of finish wear for a sax that has seen a lot of performances. There is some history of light dent work on this saxophone, some light dings currently remain. The low C key guard was also previously re-soldered. The sax also includes the original neck. Its neck shows history of some past repair. We will remove the small dings from the neck while it is in our shop.
This saxophone is in currently in line for a professional set-up in our shop. The set-up will include taking out the dings as well as the replacement of necessary pads and materials. Once complete the sax will be in perfect playing condition. If you are looking for a sweet player at a great price you will not want to miss this 1970's vintage Mark VI. This is the perfect alto for anyone who needs a versatile pro horn.
