Selmer Paris Mark VI – 1957
This is an original lacquer Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 71815.  It does showcase original lacquer as well as a high F# key from the Selmer Paris factory made in 1957. This saxophone is a powerful player and is in exceptional physical condition. 
 
This alto demonstrates a crisp response to air flow while producing a beautiful brilliant sound. The quality  of the sound is very full across all registers. The key action is smooth and fluid under the fingers allowing for a comfortable experience. This would be an idea alto for players looking for a slightly brighter sound or for anyone who likes to use a ton of air. 
 
The Mark VI show off the proper dark honey tint to its lacquer which is perfectly complemented by the clear engraving on the bell area and bow. This sax shows no history of major past repair and has never received any re-solder repairs. The body tube bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in very nice original condition. All of the original key guards and guard feet are in good shape as well. This saxophone does include the original neck. The neck is in great physical condition and has never been pulled down. 
 
This alto came into our shop playing on an older set up of leather pads and metal  “waffle” resonators. In order to keep the end cost of this installment down we are selling it in as is condition with out doing any work to it in our shop. Saxophone ships out with original Mark VI wood hard case.
