Selmer Mark VI Alto Sax 1960 5 digit Original lacquer & pads. No known blemishes or work done. I recently played this one at a event just to test it out prior to this sale and it handled and plays very beautifully. This horn will not disappoint the best of saxophone players. It sounds exactly like the epitome of what saxophone should.
In other words, It has the sound that everyone looks for in a Selmer Paris Mark VI. Smooth, clean, pure, well centered, Selmer Sound on the upper and lower registers.The metal tone boosters gives it a nice edge but doesn't take away from it's core. It's not over bright and there is no hollowness in the sound.
This perticular Mark VI sounds like what made Selmer Paris what it is today. I didn't want to say absolute Mint because there is just a bit of worn off lacquer on the Eb, C, and the palm keys where the players fingers touched. Just enough to let you know that it has been played at some point over the past 60 years but I would still say that it's museum quality and very low miles. You can play it like it is or you may wish to have it worked over by your best technician. I really bdon't deem it necessary at this point as it plays well as it is.It belonged to a Bagpipe Player from Scotland and has been stored away safely for many years and even here, in a temputure controlled environment. 97% original lacquer and only a bit of wear on the thumb rest and some of the key touches. Imperial European Engravings are as sharp as they come. This is a first run horn not a second. No known dents, scratches, pits, or anything else that would degrade or lower it's collector's value. The case is just as beautiful as the horn and comes with a denim case cover for it's protection. Think of this one as a players horn , collector's horn , and or a future investment. Please check the pictures and ask plenty of questions. I own a small collection of mint condition Selmer Paris Saxophones and a few others but this is one of my most valuable pieces. I just didn't want anyone to think of this as any other Mark VI because it's not. Thank you for looking Kind Regards Rodchester.
