This is a sweet item. Vintage Selmer Paris original lacquer Mark VI sopranino saxophone keyed to high F#, serial number 285927. It is always nice to find a sorpanino but even more so when it is a beautiful Mark VI keyed to high F#. The body of the sax is in fantastic original condition with 98% original lacquer showing.  All of the original key pearls on the sax are also in pristine condition and still have a crisp feel to them. It has been some time since this saxophone has been serviced. As it is sitting on its original pads we decided to put it in line in our shop to received the Saxquest overhaul. It will soon feature all new premium leather pads, resonators, corks, felts and a precise key regulation. Once complete it will be in perfect playing condition. 
 
The body of the sorpanino is in excellent condition. It shows a little bit of cosmetic wear around the under side of the bell flare from previous placement on a peg stand, and from a past lip flare bend on one side. The lyre mount on the side of the body tube was very slightly pushed in at some point in the past. We will adjust this back to its proper position once during the overhaul in our shop. 
 
We have had a number of Mark VI sorpanino's in the shop over the years and it is very rare to find one with the high F#. The sopranino as an instrument in general has a pretty brilliant sonic character. This one does feature a beautiful centered quality to the way it plays. As expected from a Selmer the key work is also nice and smooth under the fingers. 
 
Do not miss out on this super special item. This sopranino ships out in perfect playing condition with a fresh overhaul from our shop. Includes original Selmer carrying case.
