Selmer Mark Vi Tenor 1973
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor saxophone from the 1970's in original lacquer finish, serial number 214963. This tenor plays with a rich response while featuring a beautiful blend of complexity and warmth in its sound. The excellent balance across all registers allows for a superb amount of control and flexibility. This tenor can be played with an ultra warm sub tone and can also be pushed hard when desired. The key work feels fluid under the fingers allowing for a very comfortable experience. 
 
As is common with most professional instruments this sax does show history of past use but was well taken care of. The body is in excellent physical condition and does not show any signs of having received solder repair. All of the key guards are in great condition  as well. It has had a small amount of dent work removed around the bow. The bow cap is still in perfect condition and has never been pushed in. This tenor includes the original Mark VI neck. It is not the prettiest at this point but it does not show signs of having ever received serious past repair. All of the key pearls are in very good condition and have not become overly worn down from years of use. 
 
This tenor came in having been re-padded in another shop in the last few years. The leather pads and metal resonators are all still in great shape and have a ton of life in them. In order to ensure the sax goes out playing at the top of its game it is currently awaiting a professional set-up and cleaning in our shop. The set-up will include a complete dissemble and cleaning followed by a thorough regulation and replacement of any needed materials. 
 
If you are looking to get into a great playing VI these later vintage horns can be picked up at much lower prices compared to the early vintage models.
