Mark VI Alto – Original Lacquer 1957
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone in original lacquer finish, serial number 69062. It was just freshly overhauled in our shop and is now ready for a new home. The alto shows off a crisp original lacquer finish with all of the original key work and original neck. This sax has the properly honey tinted air bake lacquer and American engraved floral pattern around the bell. 
While it is not quite in mint condition the body of the sax is in great shape and looks fantastic. It does show some normal play wear but does not have any signs of receiving major repair in the past. The main point of note is the bottom guard foot on the low C key guard was re-soldered in the past. This work was done professionally and looks quite nice. The body tube, bow and bow cap are all in great physical condition. The bow cap has never been pushed in. This saxophone comes with the original neck with matching serial number. Aside from some cosmetic wear to the finish the neck is in great shape. Most importantly it was never pulled down in the past. 
The Mark VI's from this period have a lush and ultra full sonic character. They take the air in easy and give the feel of a thick wall of sound as they respond. Projection is fantastic as well. This particular alto showcases a balanced response from top to bottom and never becomes thin. The key work on the horn feels smooth and ultra fluid under the fingers allowing for a postie playing experience. 
This Mark VI was just freshly overhauled in the Saxquest shop and is now in perfect playing condition. The alto is now playing up a storm on a new set of Premium Pro Pads by Valentino, metal domed resonators and all new corks and felt work. This is a seriously smooth playing VI alto. Ships with original Selmer case with working latches and a nice interior.
