Here's a good 1970 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax, serial number 173958. This alto was just overhauled in the last couple years and will get a fresh pro set up from the Saxquest repair shop before shipping. This is a great option for the pro player looking for a solid, great playing VI at a lower price than what many of these are selling for these days.


This alto has been well maintained over its life. There are a couple minor dings in the bottom bow area which we will remove during our work on the sax, but no serious past damage or repair, and that includes no resolders. The sax was relacquered long ago, as seen in the photos. The neck is original to the horn and it too shows no past damages. This alto was repadded fairly recently, using premium firm leather pads and original style brown plastic resonators. We'll do a fresh adjustment on the sax before we ship it out, including full disassembly and cleaning, reseating of all pads and replacement of adjustment corks and felts. All keywork and springs will be adjusted.


This alto plays with a vibrant, slightly brighter tone. It takes your air well and responds lightning fast with a quick and lively sound. Projection is great, it really punches well to the back of the room. A great lead alto for jazz or rock, this is a dynamic and versatile instrument for today's busy musician.
