Freshly Overhauled in the Saxquest Shop
This is a lovely Selmer Paris Mark VII alto saxophone, serial # 241599. The Mark VII is one of the more recent completed projects by veteran tech George Bunk in the Saxquest shop. George gave this alto a complete professional overhaul. The overhaul included a complete dissemble and cleaning. This was followed by precise key fitting and replacement of all of the pads, corks and felts. It now shows off a fresh set of Valentino pro pads with brown plastic resonators and new premium corks and felts. The alto is now in perfect playing condition. 
 
The silver finish on the alto looks fantastic. Its body is in great physical condition showing a modest amount of cosmetic wear for its vintage. The body tube, bow and bell are all in terrific original condition. Its bow cap and bell flare are both perfect and have never been pushed in or damaged. The alto shows no history of receiving re-solders in the past. Its key pearls are all in outstanding condition and still have a nice crisp feel to them under the fingers. At some point in the past the neck on the alto was switched to a Selmer Super Action 80 style brass neck. The neck is in perfect physical condition. 
 
This alto has ultra smooth response to air flow and features a dark focused sound. The control and clarity of the Mark VII across its entire range is exceptional. With a warm contoured sound and a great feel the Mark VII is a highly versatile saxophone and works great in a multitude of musical situations. If you are looking to get into a vintage Selmer with out spending the big bucks this Mark VII is a great way to go.
