Selmer Mark VI – Includes Professional Overhaul for SQ
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark Vi alto in original lacquer finish, serial number 132946. The alto shows off a very pretty lacquer finish with the proper dark honey tint. It also shows off very crisp and clear floral engraving around the bell area. All of the original key work, guards and original pearls are with the sax and are in outstanding original condition. There is no history of major past repair on this sax and it has received absolutely no solder repairs. The body tube, bow, bell and bow cap are also all in excellent original condition. This saxophone includes the original neck with matching serial number stamp. The neck is in great shape and was never pulled down. 
This alto looks like it received a decent amount of play time initially but most likely spent most of its life in the case. It came into our shop playing through some leaks on the original set of leather pads. As the pads are very much past their prime this saxophone is currently awaiting a professional overhaul in our shop. The work will include a complete disassemble, cleaning and precise key fitting. It will be set-up with all new Valentino leather pads, brown nylon resonators as well as all new key materials. Once this work is complete the saxophone will once again be in perfect playing condition. 
Before we checked the horn in the shop we were able to get a quick video of Ben playing it in as is condition. It is a smooth player with a brilliant sound and clear projection. This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition with the original Selmer wood hard case.
