Mark VI Alto – Vintage 1957
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 69098. With a lush dark sonic palate and quick response this alto is a blast to play. It is not the prettiest horn in our shop right now but it has it where it counts. If you are looking to get into a Mark VI for a low price this 1957 vintage is going to be hard to pass up. 
 
The body of the alto is in solid physical condition from top to bottom. It was re-finished a long time ago with the correct air bake lacquer. The engraving has a clean and crisp look to it across the bell area. The body tube, bow and bell are all in great shape. There is a little bit of wear on the bow cap but the bow itself has never been seriously dented or damaged. The alto has a small number of re-solders on some of the lower bell key guard feet. This sax does include the original neck in nice condition. The neck has never been pulled down and has a matching serial number stamp. 
 
This saxophone is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a set-up on its current set of pads. It came into our shop playing on an older set of pads and brown plastic resonators. In order to keep the final cost of the horn down we are going to set the horn up on the older pads. Our tech will replace a small number of the oldest pads and all of the key felts and corks. The horn will soon be sealing up and playing great. Ultimately the horn will need additional attention down the road if you are planning on doing a lot of serious playing on it. 
 
If you are looking to get into a nice dark playing Mark VI do not miss out on this 69 thousand alto.
