Gold Plated Mark VI Tenor
This is a pretty Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor saxophone from 1956 in gold plating, serial number 63661.
 

This saxophone takes the air in super quick and plays with an exceptionally colorful response. Projection and clarity of the tenor is incredible. The key work is smooth and fluid under the fingers allowing for easy handling. The tenor came into our shop playing on some and older overhaul with Noyek style metal resonators. It is currently awaiting a professional overhaul in the Saxquest shop. The overhaul will include a disassemble and cleaning. All new Valentino premium pro pads, metal resonators, new corks, felts and precise key regulation. After the work is complete it will be in perfect playing condition. Once the work is complete on the sax we will post a new video and a new set of photos.

The original owner of this saxophone purchased it new from Selmer Paris and had sent to the factory in Elkart to have it gold plated shortly after receiving. It shows no history of any major repair on the current finish. The body tube, bow, bell and bell cap are all in great shape. The original Mark VI neck is also in excellent condition and does not show any sign of past repair. The only real point of wear is around the neck strap ring where a little bit of the silver finish from under the gold is showing. All of the key guards and guard feet are in great shape as well.
