Closet-King Selmer Paris 1973 MARK VI Alto Sax-American assembly American Engraving Medium Bow Mint Condition. This saxophone is not yet broken in.You will have to search the earth for another one as good condition as this one. This could be an opportunity for you. You may think of it as an investment or if you keep it clean, a playing instrument as well. The engravings are very special on this one as they are deep as well as sharp and the honey gold lacquer is original and is 100% intact.
This is a first class saxophone and is as close to new as you will find for the year 1973. The sound is extremely rich and clear, especially in the altissimo range and the action is like that of a new horn. Highly sought after medium bow with great intonation. This horn has the sound that the whole world seek after and many manufacturers have been striving to equal or excell and that without success. We call it "The Selmer Sound".The Mark VI has held it's own and will continue to do so through the years. This Alto is the epitome of what a saxophone should look like, sound like, and play, and that is without exaggeration. Full bodided flexible, sweet, warm, clean, loud and clear all the way up to the altissimo range and smooth down to the bottom, and if you sub, fuzzy or smokey. It's the early 70s which in my opinion was just when they brought everything down to a science and they produced some of their finest horns. (In other words, they had reached a peak for the Mark VI and they themselves have been hard pressed to outdo their own projects). These horns are the top of the line for the whole world. I really want this one to go to someone who really appreciate what we have here. I really don't want to see it go but circumstances have forced me to make changes in my later years so please take advantage of this situation. Deluca music has made all of the necessary adjustments to this horn so this one is ready to play.
You may wish to look up Deluca Music as it is Hatboro's premier music store here in Pennsylvania. I have simply kept this horn in the a climate controled environment throughout the time that it has been in my possession and has finally decided to part with it along with a few others. I have never played this horn anywhere outside of my home or family members homes.
This one is priced to sell according to it's condition. I do really think that you will have to search the world over to find another 1973 as nice as this.
