Selmer Mark VII

This is a fantastic player's instrument. Selmer Mark VII alto sax in raw brass, serial number 280950. If you are looking to get into a great playing vintage Selmer with plenty of flexibility and character this Mark VII is absolutely fantastic.


The body of this saxophone is in very good physical condition. At some point the lacquer finish was removed from this sax. It is currently showing a very clean raw brass look. There might have been a few smaller dings removed from the bow area but this sax has never seen any major repair work to the body. The body tube, bow and bow cap all look fantastic. The original neck is also with this sax and is in great shape.


In comparison to the gold lacquer Mark VII's we have had in the shop this one is more open and free blowing. It has super quick response to air flow and showcases a crisp and ultra clear sound. The sonic character is very consistent through out the entire saxophone. It should also be noted this alto has an exceptionally full sounding upper register. This alto is extremely flexible as a player and its balanced sound allows for excellent control. The great playability and versatility of the sax makes ideal for the professional playing in a multitude of musical settings.


We completely overhauled this alto a couple years ago, using premium firm leather pads and original style brown plastic resonators, and was recently adjusted by master tech Jeff Dening. Everything is sealing perfectly and the sax has a nice broken in feel. If you're looking for a Selmer Paris with a cool vintage look and wonderful playability, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal.
