Mark VII Alto – Floral Engraving
This is a very nice Selmer Paris Mark VII alto saxophone in original gold lacquer, serial number 349415. The Mark VII is a great choice for anyone looking to get into a pro Selmer at a lower price point. This one is a great looking horn and is an even better player. 
 
The body of the sax is very clean showing some normal cosmetic character. Its original lacquer finish has a warm honey tint to it which is complemented by the American floral engraving. The key work feels smooth and fluid under the fingers with all the original key pearls. All of the pearls are in great shape and are not overly worn down from past play. This saxophone does include a high F# key. 
 
The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in outstanding original condition. Looking over the saxophone very carefully it has a re-solder repair to the bottom foot of the low C key guard and a very small dimple size ding on the bow near the low Eb key guard. This saxophone includes the original Selmer Mark VII neck in good condition. It has never been pulled down. 
 
This particular Mark VII plays with a fairly deep and dark sonic quality. It is much more open at its core then many of the modern Selmers being made today. The sax was just freshly re-padded in another pro shop and is a superb player. Its pro set-up features a new set of premium leather pads, brown nylon resonators and all new corks and felts. Ships out in perfect playing condition in an older protec box case.
