Mark VI Tenor – Ships With Saxquest Overhaul
This is vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 124776. If you are looking for a knock out player and do not mind some pre-existing cosmetic character this tenor is going to be very appealing. It takes the air in ultra fast while featuring a robust free blowing sound. This horn is very flexible and can be played with a considerable amount of power when desired. Projection and sonic clarity on this tenor is exceptional! 
 
If saxophones could talk I am sure this instrument would have plenty of great stories as it has seen its fair share of performances and general use. The saxophone has been re-lacquered at some point and has had history of body and solder repair. Its current finish shows a  dark color and crisp American floral engraving around the bell area. The Selmer Paris bell stamp is very well defined and clear. The sax has a small handful of re-solders to some of the lower key guards. It also looks like the neck socket receiver at the top of the body tube was also repaired in the past. The sax is with all of the original key work and key guards. Its key pearl touches do have an aged look and feel to them having seen years of use. This saxophone includes the original neck with matching serial number stamp. The neck shows some history of having some dings removed and a past pull down corrected. It also shows a brass patch from where an electronic pick up was previously on the neck. 
 
This sax came into our shop on a set of pads well past their prime. As such the tenor is currently in line for a fresh restoration. The Saxquest professional overhaul will include a dissemble, cleaning and precise regulation and key fitting of all the key work. Once complete the Mark VI will be sporting a brand new set of premium pro Valentino pads, metal domed resonators and all new cork and felt materials. While the saxophone in the shop we will also make sure the neck is in perfect working order and replace the old brass patch with a flush plug. 
 
The Mark VI's from the mid 1960's are extremely versatile players and are ideal for the professional who needs a horn they can use in a variety of musical settings. This particular horn has warm color with a clear and powerful voice. Ships out in perfect playing condition with a professional overhaul by the Saxquest shop.
