HELP, I Want One!

Ships w/ Fresh Overhaul

This is a 1976 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI soprano sax, serial number 259768. This soprano has been around the block, but still has plenty to offer its new owner. Currently in our repair shop in line for a complete restoration, it will ship in perfect adjustment and ready to go for the long haul.

 

The sax does appear to be in original lacquer, though as seen in the photos, there isn't much original lacquer left. Most of the sax is in bare brass. Despite the cosmetic wear, the sax is surprisingly free of past damage. There's a couple tiny shallow dings, but no previous trauma and no resoldered joints. Currently playing on old pads, this sax will get a complete overhaul from our shop before shipping. We'll take it apart, clean it inside and out, and replace all pads and material, using Valentino Pro leather pads and original style brown plastic resonators. Finally, we'll adjust spring tensions and key heights for optimal play.

 

These later vintage Mark VI sopranos play with a very even sound and are comfortable in all registers. This particular example takes your air very well and response is quick and lively. It plays on the brighter side, with great projection and an edge that cuts. If you want a “player's” Mark VI on a budget, this soprano won't disappoint.
