This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor saxophone, serial number 135374. These mid six digit serial number Selmers are prefect if you are looking for a VI with a just a little bit more focus and brilliance in the way they play. This one in has a super quick response to air and is a blast to play. The key action is smooth and ultra fluid under the fingers allowing for an easy playing experience. 
 
The body of the tenor is in very nice condition showing off an original lacquer finish. Its American floral engraving is also super crisp and looks fantastic. The sax has seen some some history of light repair and a few re-solders to some of the lower key guard feet. The work was done very well and is very hard to spot if you are not looking for it. Its body tube, bow and bell are all in great shape. The bow cap is also in excellent condition and was never pushed in. This saxophone does include the original Mark VI neck with matching serial number stamp. The neck is in very good condition. It does look like there was a very small pull down in the past but it was more recently corrected and is now in its true position. The lacquer on the neck was also re-moved by the previous owner. 
 
This tenor was just freshly set-up in the Saxquest shop and is in perfect playing condition. It features a nice set of leather pads and brown plastic resonators. The pads are all in great shape and have plenty of life left in them. Our tech George Bunk did go through the horn and replaced all of the cork and felt materials. It feels great and plays even better. 
 
As a player this Mark VI is a top notch professional instrument. It has a great balance from end to end and an amazing level of projection. In terms of color it is on the brighter side in comparison to other Mark VI's we have had in the shop. Because of the powerful sound and great flexibility of this tenor it can flourish in any musical situation. The brighter color of this saxophone also makes it ideal for anyone who wants a VI for commercial music settings.
