Mark VI Tenor Early 1970's Vintage
This is a sweet playing Mark VI tenor in original lacquer, serial number 185613. A tenor like this one is perfect for the pro who is looking for a killer player and is not bothered by some existing cosmetic character. This saxophone came into our shop on its original set of pads. As the pads are quite old and are past their prime it is currently in line for a professional overhaul in our shop. The overhaul will include a disassemble, cleaning, precise key fitting and thorough set-up. Once it is complete it will be in perfect playing condition with all new materials as well as a new set of Valentino premium pro pads with metal domed resonators. 
 
Physically this sax is pretty straight forward and shows off the original lacquer finish with crisp American floral engraving. The bell, body tube, bow and bow cap are all in nice original condition. Its bell flare is also in great shape. This sax does include the original Mark VI neck. The neck shows similar cosmetic condition as the body but has never been seriously repaired or pulled down in the past. There is a few smaller dings located along the body of the sax at this time. These will be corrected while the saxophone is apart in our shop. We will also put a replacement guard on the alternate F# key. Aside from the key guard this saxophone does not have history of major past solder repair. 
 
If you are a pro player looking for a sweet playing Mark VI this is one which can be had at a great price. Before we put it in line in the shop we were able to get a quick video of Austin playing it on the old pads. It was leaking pretty bad but thanks to the Cebulske effect we got a good video and are extremely excited to play the horn again once the work is complete. This sax ships out in perfect playing condition with the original Mark VI wood hard case with functional zipper.  As a bonus, the sax also includes the original Selmer owners card!
