Original Silver Plate Selmer Mark VI
This is a Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone in original silver, serial #93907. The alto has had an active life of performances and is now ready for a new home. It plays with a tremendous free blowing response and is an extremely colorful instrument. The air intake and ease of play is highly efficient which allows for a flexible playing experience. Projection is fantastic on this alto. 
 
This saxophone was professionally played and maintained by the previous owner. It is in solid playing condition showing some history of repair. It was last re-padded in another shop with leather pads and flat seamless metal resonators. Over the life of this saxophone it has seen some dent work and re-solders. The bow area was worked on in the pat and the bow cap was re-soldered as part of the work. This saxophone includes the original neck. The neck was pulled down in the past but has more recently been brought back up to its true position. A previous repair tech also added a brass patch to cover up a wear spot between the saddle and octave key guide. The pearls on the horn are original showing some typical wear for a horn that has seen a lot of playing in the past. At some point the bisc and B key were filed.
 
While it is not the prettiest saxophone we have in the shop right now it is easily one of the more prominent players. In order to keep the sales price at a premium we are selling this saxophone in as is condition with out doing any work to it.  Please check out the video of Austin playing the alto.
