Selmer Paris - Mark VI Alto
This is a nice original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 133535. The saxophone has the look of a well seasoned real life pro horn. Its body is in solid condition showing the original lacquer with a healthy amount of play wear. This is an especially responsive free blowing VI. It takes the air in quick and easy while displaying an impressive robust sonic character. If you are looking for a free blowing VI alto with a fat core sound this alto is an ideal choice. 
 
The body of the alto is in great physical condition from top to bottom showing a few minor repairs. Its original lacquer shows the proper dark honey tint which is further complemented by the American floral engraving. Its body tube, bow and bell are all in good condition along with the key pearls. There was some repair near the bow in the past. A few of the guard feet along the low C key guard have been re-soldered. This saxophone includes the original Mark VI neck with matching serial number stamp. The neck has never been pulled down. 
 
This alto was very actively used for a number of years by the previous owner. It was well cared for but it has been time since it has seen any service attention at a repair bench. As such it is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a mechanical overhaul. The Saxquest professional overhaul will include a dissemble, cleaning, precise key fitting and a set-up with all new premium leather pads, metal dome resonators and key materials. 
 
This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition with the original zipper Selmer case. It also includes an original Selmer long shank C* mouthpiece.
