This is a gorgeous 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 was recently fully overhauled in our repair shop, using firm leather pads and brown nylon resonators. The overhaul included a full disassemble and cleaning, with new corks, felts and precise key regulation.

 

The original owner of this saxophone purchased it new from Selmer Paris and had it 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.
