Mark VI Alto 98902 – Fresh Overhaul from Saxquest Shop
This is a very sweet original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 98902. The alto has a great look to it featuring a dark honey tint to the original lacquer. Its engraving pattern is also exceptionally crisp across the bell region. This saxophone has clearly seen plenty of play time in the past but was looked after carefully over the years. It has some honest play wear to the lacquer. The body tube, bow and bow cap are all in great original condition with no history of major repair. Its bow cap has never been pushed in. There is one solder repair on the bottom foot of the low C key guard. The original neck to the Mark VI is intact with matching serial number stamp. It has never been pulled down or repaired. The bell flare of this saxophone does have two cosmetic wear areas from as past repair but is currently in solid condition.
This alto in particular has a powerful response and a rather robust character. It is very fast in response to air flow and is one of the more open “free blowing” Mark VI's we have had in the shop in some time. If you are looking for the kind of VI you can put a ton of air into this one is going to be very appealing. 
The alto was just freshly overhauled in the Saxquest shop and is now in perfect playing condition. Saxquests professional overhaul included a disassemble, precise fitting and set up of all the key work and materials. It is now sporting a brand new set of Valentino leather pads, metal domed resonators as well as new corks and felts. This alto has a great look to it and is now playing even better. Ships in perfect playing condition with original Selmer hard case with functional zipper.
