Mark VI Alto – High F#
This is a near mint condition 1966 vintage Selmer Paris Mark alto sax in original lacquer, serial number 138321. The striking condition of this saxophone makes it highly desirable for the collector and player alike. It spent most of its life in the case and has not seen a lot of play time in its life. Saxquest professionally overhauled the horn in 2020. It is in perfect playing condition with a brand new set Pisoni Pro pads and TM Custom metal resonators.
 
The original finish on the alto is 99% intact. If you look closely on the horn you can see a bit of light surface scratching from past play time but nothing too serious. The body is in amazing original condition with no signs of past dent or solder repair. All of the original key work and key guards are in great shape. The original neck is also in great shape and has never been pulled down. 
 
This saxophone is a tremendous player. It is very close to the fabled “Sanborn” vintage. This saxophone does feature the preferred medium bow length as well as a factory high F# key. The response on this saxophone is very immediate with a precise direct sonic character. An alto like this is very ideal for the pro player looking for functionality in any genre. 
 
The Mark VI was overhauled in our last year and is still playing great. We will also take a look at it in our shop once more to ensure it is in perfect playing condition. Ships with a nice non original carrying case.
