Mark VI Alto - 1967
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone manufactured in 1967, serial number 150315. The sax is most ideal for a professional saxophonist looking for a great Mark VI at a good price point. This particular sax has been well played over the years and has the look of a very active instrument. 
 
The body of the saxophone is in solid physical condition while it does only show around 5-10% of the original lacquer finish. At this point in the game the majority of the sax is in its natural raw brass. Its American floral engraving is still very crisp and well defined around the bell. The body shows history of a few re-solders to the lower key guard feet as well as some dings around the bottom bow. This alto is currently in line in our shop for a complete mechanical restoration. The work will include a disassemble and cleaning followed by precise regulation and key fitting. Once complete the sax will be fresh and clean with all new Valentino leather pads, brown nylon resonators as well as all new corks and felts. While the sax is apart in the shop we will also put on a brand new set of blue needle springs. 
 
These late 1960's Mark VI altos are considerably more balanced and flexible regarding pitch and sonic character. They are a top choice for the modern pro who needs a horn to function in a multitude of musical settings. While it might not be the prettiest horn in the shop but it is in great physical condition and will soon be ready for a new home. This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition.
