    There are not too many original lacquer Selmer Balanced Action’s out there anymore. Here is a structurally clean, original lacquer alto SN# 26xxx, which is the best serial range for a Balanced Action, in my experience. It has American engraving, with a beautiful cabin scene engraved on the bell. The BA tenors have gone up a lot in price in recent years, and the altos are almost sure to follow. This is what Paul Desmond played on the classic “Take Five” with an MC Gregory mouthpiece (BA + MC Gregory @small tip opening + stiff reed + lots of practice + play softly = Desmond sound!) I love the warm, sweet tone that these altos have. I play a very similar 26xxx myself, and recommend this one highly. This horn was overhaule by Matt Stohrer, and was his personal alto for a while before I snagged it from him.

    This is one of the most beautiful vintage saxophones on the site right now. It is a Selmer Balanced Action alto SN# 23xxx, which is early in the (short) Balanced Action run. The Balanced Action was a leap forward in saxophone design and is really the first saxophone with what would come to be modern keywork. These horns are becoming more and more popular as people discover a tone that you cannot get anywhere else combined with this kind of keywork.

    This is a beautiful Selmer Balanced Action tenor saxophone that was relacquered by Selmer in the 1950’s. It had Selmer pads and a few remaining Tone-x resonators on it when I got it (which means definitely factory relac), as well as the dark nitrocellulose lacquer that Selmer used on the later SBA tenors. Plus, the engraving is totally sharp and the whole thing is beautiful. Aaron Barnard just overhauled this horn with TenorMadness domed brass resos and Pisoni pads, and it is now ready to go and is a VERY good playing BA tenor.

    If you are looking for a creme de la creme vintage Selmer tenor, this is it. The BA tenors between roughly 27k-30k serial are my favorite sounding vintage tenors. I play a 29k BA tenor myself, and I don’t think there is really any other saxophone vintage or modern that gives you such a uniquely beautiful, full, lush, velvety, delicately centered tone. The list of prominent players who played a BA tenor is a virtual who’s who of 40’s jazz, and with good reason. This is a rare, turn-key purchase for a world-class vintage Selmer tenor that will make even the most jaded gear heads get excited. Grab it now before it’s gone.

This horn has a fresh overhaul by Matt Stohrer, using oversized domed metal resonators. If you are trying to figure out what resos match a BA like this, the answer is domed metal.

    This is a very nice, clean relacquered Balanced Action in the best serial range for these tenors 29xxx. It is a clean relacquer because there was not much buffing done, and the engraving is still very much like it was originally. The keywork is in good condition, and this horn plays very well with almost all new pads. It has a bigger sound than a VI, and it’s also darker and more smoky than a VI. I play a 29xxx myself, and this horn plays a lot like mine, which is saying a lot.

    Here is a nice, clean, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone in my favorite serial range for *tone*. The VI altos around 95xxx-119xxx seem to have an extra resonant, powerful, dark, focused core that makes them a lot of fun to play. The intonation is good, and there are no problems there to mention, save low B and Bb being a bit flat, but only if you are using a small tip opening, classical style mouthpiece. This horn has a mix of old and new pads, and it plays great on them. You could get away with playing it like this for quite some time before getting it repadded again. There just is no other saxophone that does it all as well as a vintage VI like this, and this is a good, original example of one.

    This is an interesting horn because, besides the fact that it is in like new condition, it is also one of the very first medium bow altos made. It is a 136k serial, which is as early as you see the true medium bow (which has the best intonation for low register, especially with a classical setup). There were actually long bow horns made after this batch, believe it or not. In any case, it’s a huge playing horn as well – rich, medium between bright and dark and just surprisingly lots of fun. It was so pristine that the neck cork had not even been compressed. Basically it was never played – and it turned out to be an excellent player.

For those of you that need a high F# for classical repertoire, or just for convenience, this is one of the best deals on a VI you will find. It comes from my favorite serial range for the VI alto, when it had the best combination of tone and intonation etc.

    This is a very good lead alto Mark VI in that sweet spot around 140-150k serial when the altos tend to be very dependably good. It has a BIG voice and instant response. Easy altissimo, excellent intonation, including bell keys, and that medium bright, complex, sweet vintage Selmer thing going for it. Part of what makes this horn stand out is the quality of the overhaul. Steve Collins of Collins Hornworks overhauled this with nice, firm MusicMedic precision pads and the correct domed plastic resos, and it just feels great. I am *extremely* picky about this kind of thing, so that you get a quality of setup and playing condition that makes horns like this stand apart from the rest of the options out there.

    This is a very nice American-assembled and engraved Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone. It has original lacquer, and it has good pads and plays very well. Some small dents were removed from the bow and body, and the low C and B key guard feet have been resoldered – just small stuff from being used, and all very minor. The neck is original and has not been pulled down or repaired. All in all, it’s a beautiful, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI in a great serial range for altos, with good pads for a very reasonable price.

    Selmer Mark VI Alto 168xxx

    This is a gorgeous American-assembled and engraved Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone. It has nearly all of its original lacquer, and it has good pads and plays very well. It has no resolders and no past damage to the neck, bell, or body tube. The neck is original, beautiful and has not been pulled down or repaired. The American-assembled VI altos in the 160k range are very good players. I know several top professional players who prefer altos in just this range. The tone is sweet, medium between bright and dark, flexible, and complex just like people want from a good Mark VI. The intonation is very good – better than most Mark VI altos, both in the palm keys and in the bell keys. If you have been looking for a realy good VI alto for a while, look no further.

    This is a beautiful relacquered Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone with rose gold colored lacquer and a recent repad. It plays well with a medium-bright tone and a nice even scale cross the range. This horn has good intonation across the range as well, unlike some earlier VI altos with a different bow design. You will not lose money if you ever want to re-sell a horn like this. Modern Selmers have gotten so expensive relative to vintage ones that you can now buy a great VI like this for quite a bit less than a new “Reference 54,” only your Ref54 goes down in value and your VI goes up, and the VI is (in my opinion) still a superior instrument in terms of tone and build quality.

This alto came to me in nearly new condition with original pads intact.

It turned out really great, and is tons of fun to play.

    Selmer Mark VI Alto 82xxx from 1959 Near Mint Silver

    Behold: the mythical 80k alto in nearly new condition. [hushed silence] This original silver plate Mark VI alto SN#82xxx is about as close to buying a new Mark VI in 1959 as you are likely to find. This horn was assembled in France, and has not been played much since it was new. There are no dents or dings, no past repairs, except for one key guard foot on low Bb. The (doubtless original) neck, body tube, bow and bell all look great. The small amount of tarnish in the silver will of course wipe off easily. The pads look good, though it has not just been freshly overhauled. It’s on consignment, and it looks like the owner got it repadded and didn’t play it much. It still plays quite well, with a medium dark, focused, punchy tone. It has the medium bow length for better bell key intonation.

    If you’ve been looking for a beautiful, collectible, and great playing premium vintage alto, this would be hard to beat.

    I think that the VI altos between 136500-149xxx are probably the creme de la creme of Mark VI altos, all things considered. 136500 is when the “long bow” ended and the “medium bow” length began for Selmer. Basically, they finally got the bell key intonation to work well at this point. This is one of the nicest altos in this “sweet spot” that I have seen. It’s original lacquer, in very good condition, with no resolders, no dents or dings, original case, original neck is in great shape and not pulled down or dented. Basically, it’s about as close as you can get to going back to 1967 and buying a really nice new Mark VI.

    Selmer Mark VI Alto Low A / High F# 141xxx

    This is one of the coolest Mark VI altos that I have ever seen. It is an early “Sanborn serial,” original lacquer, American-engraved SN#141xxx, with vertical Mark VI stamp by the D palm key, AND it has low A, AND it has high F# (which I have rarely seen on VI altos of this vintage), AND it is in excellent physical condition. The tone is focused, medium bright, and rich, much like a 5-digit or early 6-digit alto, actually. The bell key tone is great as well. Low A speaks very easily and sounds great. I have been holding onto this for a while, and this is definitely a horn I will be keeping if it doesn’t sell. Besides being a top level collectible, it is also really fun to play.

    Really clean Mark VI altos near 140xxx tend to be the most desirable VI altos, and this is a beautiful example of one. People love these horns because they have a gorgeous tone that is complex and projects really well. This horn has almost all of its original lacquer intact, with just moderate play wear.

    These horns tune really well, so they are ideal VI’s for players who want to play both jazz and classical repertoire. The tone is gorgeous on either one. The pads on this horn are very old – some may be original from 1967, so plan on getting this overhauled by the tech of your choice, or let me know and I can get it done really well for you as a second option.

    Selmer Mark VI Alto Original Lacquer from 1967 Beautiful!

    This is a beautiful, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto from 1967. It’s a 149xxx serial, which is just about the best range for a Mark VI alto in my opinion. The best VI alto version, all things considered, is between 136500-155000 or so. These horns have the total package: better intonation than many earlier VI altos, a big, free-blowing, resonant tone that is medium bright and still has the complexity and warmth of 5-digit altos. These also have the warm, honey colored lacquer of earlier VI altos. This is an American-engraved and assembled 140k alto with only a little bit of wear from use and one foot of the low Eb key guard has been reattached where it popped off. There’s a little ding in the inside of the bell about the side of a pencil eraser, or smaller. That’s about it condition wise. I don’t think this horn has been played very much since it was new. It has mostly original pads still! (Plan on a repad soon.) It comes in the original case too, and the original neck also looks great and has not been damaged. If you need an original 1960’s Selmer Soloist mouthpiece to complete the set, let me know. I always have some of those around, and I’ll give you a good deal on one to complete the set.

    Only one available, and priced to sell!

The VI altos around 95xxx-119xxx seem to have an extra resonant, powerful, dark, focused core that makes them a lot of fun to play. With a Meyer or similar mouthpiece, you get that classic lead alto tone that makes these horns perennial favorites among all levels of players. The price is also very attractive, not least because you will not lose money if you ever want to re-sell a horn like this. Modern Selmers have gotten so expensive relative to vintage ones that you can now buy a great VI like this for the same price as a new “Reference 54,” only your 54 goes down in value and your VI goes up, and the VI is (in my opinion) still a superior instrument in terms of tone and build quality.

    This is one of those rare horns that you see once or twice a year (usually on this site!)– a mint condition Mark VI alto saxophone. If you could turn back the clock and buy a new VI alto in 1964, this is what you would get. There are no dents or dings, and there is almost no lacquer wear at all. This horn has its original pads and it still plays very well on them. It has a big, medium-dark, tone. This alto is in my favorite serial range for tone quality – the altos between 100-119xxx seem to have a consistent power and a tenor-like quality to the sound that makes for really excellent playing.

    It is hard to say how many low A Mark VI saxophones Selmer actually made. There is a longstanding rumor that the number was only 200. I see a few come up for sale each year, so I suspect the number to be more like 1000, but who knows? There were three Conn-O-Saxes for sale at the same time on eBay at one point in 2010, and hardly anything is as rare as one of those. This horn is in extremely clean condition with only a bit of lacquer wear on the octave key/low A key and on the thumb hook. The back of the body tube is beautiful. Pearls are all sharp. It has all original pads as well. The serial number is 134xxx and it has a medium bright tone with a singing quality to it. It plays great on the original pads and needs nothing. The tone is lyrical, medium bright, and the bell key tone is great as well.

    Here is a chance to get a really world-class Mark VI alto with a fresh overhaul by Matt Stohrer. This horn is also beautiful, and in the prime, Sanborn alto serial range. It has the vertical Mark VI stamp below the D palm key that you only find on the early 14x,xxx Selmers, and that make the horn more collectible. Originally unengraved, I had it American engraved with the correct pattern for the period to add beauty to the horn.

    This is a 95%+ original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone, SN#145xxx. These are pretty much the holy grail of alto saxophones, from the most desirable serial range and in excellent condition. This is also a phenomenal player that comes here on trade from a serious player and saxophone collector. It has no dents, no resolders, no past repairs. Some light lacquer wear on the body, and more on the neck. It’s just the sort of alto that everybody wants- it plays great, and it is super-collectible as well.

    Here is an outstanding player of a Mark VI alto that has just gotten a fresh overhaul done by Steve Collins of Collins Hornworks. Steve does really high-quality pad and overhaul work, especially on modern altos like this. This horn has the correct brown Selmer style resonators on the new pads, and it plays GREAT. I was really having trouble putting this horn down when I was play testing it, so much so that I got behind on some other things. There are some saxophones that do that to you – you just want to keep playing it, because you feel like there is no barrier between the world and the sound that you can hear in your head.

    Don’t miss this one! (And take note that I don’t say that about every saxophone!) This is one of the best playing Mark VI altos that I have played. It came on trade from one of the foremost players and collectors in the USA today, and it was his main alto for over a decade, chosen out literally scores of the best VI altos around.

    This is a beautiful example of a primo Mark VI alto SN# 151xxx with high F#. It is uncommon to see a high F# on a VI alto in this range, but many modern players cannot function without one, so that makes these horns very desirable. The VI altos that have the best all around intonation are those after around 1375xx, when Selmer changed its bow design and improved bell key intonation. There is little to no difference between the 140xxx altos championed by Dave Sanborn, and an early 15x,xxx like this. As far as I can tell, they are identical, except that my favorite players have been in the 148-152k range, thus far. It’s a great do-it-all alto for anybody.

    This is a very nice original lacquer Mark VI alto with about 98% of the original lacquer intact and with the rare High F# key. The VI altos in this range are typically very strong players with the best intonation of any of the Mark VI run. The sound is medium bright and rich with lots of character and flexibility. This sax has a fresh overhaul done by Matt Stohrer, who is one of the best saxophone specialists in the business. It also received American engraving by Sherry Huntley, a former master engraver for Selmer. It ships in the original case as well.

    The later serial Mark VI altos deserve to have as good a reputation as the 5-digit altos have. That is somewhat controversial, but it is also pretty obvious to anyone who has played as many different VI altos as I have. All the serious sellers will say the same. This horn is SN 201xxx and it plays great. It has older pads that are still sealing well, so you can get a good idea for the tone. It has been well cared-for and has had only one dent removed, on the back of the body tube.

    This is a gorgeous, American-assembled, original lacquer Mark VI alto saxophone. It has one keycage leg resoldered (with minimal lacquer loss) and one small dent removed from the back of the bow. Other than that, it looks like a brand new horn, with super clean honey gold lacquer and American engraving. It comes with the black treypak case in great shape as well.

    Here’s a beautiful and great-playing later VI alto. It has one ding on the back of the bow that has been removed since I took these pictures, and just a tiny bit of lacquer wear here and there (see pictures below), and that’s it. The neck is perfect, the bell is perfect, the body tube and keywork are perfect. It has the original pads, and they are sealing very well and in good shape.

    Here is a chance to get an original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto for the price of a Yamaha! The only thing wrong with this horn is that it has lacquer wear and looks kind of worn, especially on the bell. This wear is purely superficial, though. The horn is actually in very clean mechanical condition: there are no dents, no dings, no past repairs, the neck is perfect, bell, body and bow all look great. The keywork is tight, and I think it still has the original pads intact (so it needs new pads). So if you don’t care that the lacquer is worn, you’ll be getting a very good VI alto to get repadded.

    Here is a beautiful example of a Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone. Because it is a later serial number, the market price is actually lower than a Mark-VI-inspired Selmer “Reference 54,” even though this is the original Selmer Mark VI. The Reference horns are nice, but they go down in value significantly over time while this Mark VI will continue to go up, making it a much better investment.

    This is a clean, relacquered Mark VI alto saxophone with a fresh overhaul that plays very well. When you are looking at relacquered horns, you have to look for evidence of over buffing, or mechanical flaws that were dealt with when the horn was relacquered. This horn has none of that stuff, and is just a nice 5-digit alto with a fresh coat of lacquer put on at some point. There is no evidence of past dent work, and the body tube is clean and straight. The bell has not been dented, and the neck is perfect and has not been pulled down. The neck has the matching serial number as well. Engraving still looks good, and the lacquer looks beautiful as well and is almost all intact.

    In 1956, a young man walked into Lyon and Healy music store in downtown Chicago and bought a brand new Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone. He took it home and noticed that the intonation was not quite right, so he immediately drove down to Elkhart, IN and went to the Selmer factory, where they let him try out all their Mark VI necks that they had at the time. He picked the best neck that they had at that time (in 1956!) that made this horn play the best that it could. This means, incidentally, that the neck doesn’t have a serial number. He then played it lovingly for the next 54 years. I bought the horn from him, and it came in unbelievably good condition.

    Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone Original Lacquer SN# 63xxx This is a one-owner Mark VI alto that has original lacquer and is in excellent condition. There are no dents or past repairs on the horn. There is a line on the bell lip where the cracked lacquer shows a past repair of a dent on the bell lip. That’s about it. Besides that, there is only very minor lacquer wear anywhere on the horn. This sax has a fresh overhaul done by Matt Stohrer, who is one of the best saxophone techs in the business. I would put his work up against anyone– he repadded my personal soprano, alto and tenor, if that tells you anything.

    It is highly uncommon that a Mark VI alto this nice comes up for sale. Maybe we’ve been paying too much to snag them, but here is another one. It is in near mint condition with no noticeable lacquer wear and no past repairs except for a resoldered low Eb keycage leg that is almost invisible. I didn’t even see it until about the 5th time I looked at the horn, because the lacquer isn’t burned and it’s done so well. This horn has it all: American engraving, original pads, no no dents, virtually all of the lacquer intact, original case, the works. Check out the pictures for the specifics. This horn has a big, medium-dark sound. These altos between around 69xxx-85xxx show a lot of variety, since Selmer was experimenting with different bow lengths during this time. This horn has a standard “short” bow that you typically think of in an earlier 5-digit alto.

    Selmer Mark 6 Alto Saxophone Serial Number 77xxx Original Lacquer Mint Condition This is one of those rare horns that come up about once a year. It is a virtually mint condition Mark VI alto SN 77xxx. The only flaws are a tiny ding inside the bell and a tiny bit of lacquer wear on the thumb rests. There aren’t even any scratches in the lacquer on this horn. It looks like NEW. It has the original neck with matching serial number and the original Chesterfield case. It still has all the original domed metal resonators on the pads as well, and it plays great on the old pads with a rich complex core and a great singing tone.

    This is a nice, clean American-engraved/assembled Selmer Mark VI alto in the highly-coveted 88xxx serial range. This horn is a very very very well done Selmer factory relacquer. It looks original, because there is NO buffing at all, and the lacquer is the right kind to be 50’s-early 60’s Selmer, and even the pads were right. This is one of the top 3 cleanest relacquers that I have seen, and it has none of the potential problems that relacquered Selmers sometimes have. The keywork is tight, there is no past dent work of any kind. It’s just like an original lacquer Selmer. The other thing worth mentioning is that the 50’s Selmer neck on this horn is also not original. From the design, it’s from the right era, and it plays like an 80k VI neck should, with a dark, punchy, powerful tone that is tenor-like, but it has no serial number. This horn is a really excellent player.

    This is a beautiful and very clean Selmer Mark VI Alto SN#92xxx. It is in excellent condition with only minor lacquer wear on some of the touch points. It has a great tone with a rich core and that special edge that the 80-90k horns are known for. It’s a sax that can do it all. It would be great for a wide range of playing situations. It gives you that unique tonal pallet that makes so many pro players keep coming back to these horns after all these years.

    It’s only about once or twice a year that a Mark VI alto this nice comes along. This one is everything you’d want in one of those: American engraving, original pads, no resolders, virtually all of the lacquer intact, original case, the works. Check out the pictures for the specifics of how close to mint it is. The only past repair is that the lower thumb hook was slightly pushed in and has been pushed back out again. This is very minor. This horn has a big, dark, powerful sound. These altos between around 90xxx-119xxx are my favorite for TONE – with more power and a more tenor-like feel and sound than perhaps any other alto. Whoever gets this horn is going to be a lucky owner of a superb alto!

    This horn is in good mechanical condition and has original lacquer. It is a low Bb bari that makes it lighter and more free blowing (less stuffy) that the Low A VI baris are. The 108xxx serial is in the very best range for the VI horns as far as build quality and tone goes (My favorites for tone have been 70k-110k so far). I am listing it as-is for the present. But if you want to buy it now and get it for less money and do some or all of this work elsewhere, I am open to offers. This is a great price for this horn.

    This is a remarkably clean example of an early Selmer Mark VI soprano. Early VI sopranos are quite hard to find, and this one is in superb condition. It has almost all new pads and plays great. There is no past damage, no dents, no dings and no past repairs. The tone is classic VI soprano – a reedy, delicate French core tone that is medium between bright and dark and that can go in all sorts of directions depending on mouthpiece. If you have been looking for a great VI soprano for a while, this would be a good option.
