Raw Brass Mark VI Low Bb Bari Sax
This is a tried and true players horn. Vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI low Bb baritone saxophone, serial number 196333. Manufactured in 1972. 
 
The pictures of this instrument do a great job of telling its story. It has seen many years of serious use and has some history of repair as well. The previous owner was an active pro and used this baritone as their main instrument. This saxophone was re-lacquered in the past. At this point there is very little of the current lacquer left on the sax and it is mostly sitting in a raw brass format. The body tube, bow and bow cap are all in good shape as well as the bell. There is some past signs of minor dent work as well as solder repairs to some of the key guards. Some smaller dings still remain at this time. The original neck is with the saxophone. It is in raw brass and is also in good physical condition. 
 
As a player this saxophone is very responsive and free blowing. Its sonic character is rich with warm and robust character. The key work feels very comfortable under the fingers allowing for fluid movement under the fingers. As it sits currently the saxophone is playing quite nicely on older pads with a few leaks and some key clicks. Ultimately due to the age of the majority of the pads this saxophone will need to be overhauled before it will be ready for any extended amount of use. This baritone ships out in as is condition with an SKB hard plastic case. 
 
If you would like to add on a overhaul to this saxophone please make the selection when adding the item to your shopping cart. The overhaul would include a complete disassemble, cleaning, body work and precise key fitting before the final set up. Once complete the sax would be in perfect playing condition with all new premium pro pads, resonators and new key materials. Please be advised the turnaround time for an overhaul at this time is around 10 weeks in out shop.
