Very Pretty Original Mark VII in Great Shape

This is a beautiful original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VII alto sax, serial number 262889. This is an early, engraved model, with 90-95% original lacquer intact. It is a fine player, and is a great option for the player looking for a vintage Selmer Paris at a lower price.

 

This alto was repadded just a few years ago, and pads are still in excellent shape, fitted with brown plastic resonators. It will go through our shop for an adjustment before shipping, so you can rest easy that it will arrive in perfect playing shape. The lacquer shows minimal lacquer wear, as seen in the photos, and the original neck has never been pulled down or damaged. Even the original hard shell, Selmer Vanguard case is in outstanding shape!

 

This alto plays with a focused, direct sound, with a colorful tone. It offers the perfect balance of ease of response and offers just the right amount of positive resistance to give you something to push against. I see this alto as a great sax for the pro player on a budget, one that needs versatility for styles ranging from classical to jazz to rock.
