Selmer Paris Mark VI Alto
This is a lovely vintage Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 173313. This particular Mark VI has been well cared for throughout its long life and remains in great physical shape. It is currently in line for a professional overhaul and will be in perfect playing condition when finished. 
 
This is a true player's horn with a colorful voice that edges on the brighter side for a Mark VI. It has a focused core sound that is uniform throughout the entire range of the instrument. It takes the air in quick and efficient and responds with a tightly balanced scale across the entire range of the instrument. 
 
The body of the saxophone is in nice physical condition. Its body tube, bow and bell are all in great shape. This sax also includes the original Mark VI neck. The neck has never been pulled down. The alto was re-lacquered in the past and its current finish shows typical cosmetic character for its vintage. This saxophone has also had some repair done to the bow area in the past and has had the bow cap re-soldered. We will also remove the remaining small dings around the bow as part of the Saxquest overhaul. 
 
Once overhauled this will be a fantastic player. The Saxquest professional overhaul features all new Valentino pads with brown plastic resonators, key regulation and all new corks and felts. It comes with its original Selmer case which is in great condition. While not the prettiest Mark VI, this is a true player's horn with a beautiful sound and it can now be had at a great price.
