Saxquest Set-Up

This is a quality 1968 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor sax, serial number 155928. This is a one owner horn, which is ready for a new life. It has been well maintained over its life and is a great player for the price.

 

This tenor was relacquered a couple decades ago, and last repadded 3 years ago. The pads, fitted with original style brown plastic resonators, have held up perfectly and have plenty of life left in them. This sax will go through our repair shop for a fresh set up before we ship it out, where we will re-float all existing pads and replace all of the key adjustment corks and felts. The sax has a couple tiny pings in the body (no major dents or previous damage) which we will also remove during our set up. The instrument has its original neck, which had a fairly good pull-down when received it, but this too will be professionally corrected in our repair shop before shipping.

 

Many people hunt through Mark VI's for that one special horn that has “the sound”, and this particular tenor has it going on. Don't let the late 60's serial number fool you, this is a dynamic playing horn. It plays with a lot of power and zest, excellent projection, and fullness from low Bb up into the extended range. Altissimo just pops on it. If you want a solid Mark VI without breaking the bank, don't pass up this one. Ships in a Selmer Vanguard case with leather case cover.
