        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. 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 a relacquered Mark VI alto SN114xxx (matching neck) that has just had a fresh overhaul by Steve Collins of Collins Hornworks. Steve’s work is very good, especially on an alto like this, so even a super-picky player will be happy with the way that this horn feels under the fingers. You’re not going to find a better playing VI alto for this kind of money.

            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.

                      Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 151xxx High F# Outstanding Player

                      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.

                        Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 160941 Beautiful Original Lacquer Matt Stohrer Overhaul!

                        Just overhauled by Matt Stohrer, this is one exceptionally fine Selmer Mark VI alto. It feels better than new, and it plays so effortlessly, with a warm, complex, medium bright tone that is rich and singing. If you’ve been looking for one alto that does everything well, this is it. It gets my highly-coveted ‘exceptionally fine player’ designation. That means is the best of its kind that you can get in a saxophone in my opinion.

                        The 160k range is excellent for the VI altos specifically, because you get a rich tone and well balanced intonation. If you want one of those life-long, world-class VI altos that also has the world’s best overhaul (that I have seen at least), then get this one. Matt’s work on a VI looks like it came fresh from the factory, and feels like a million bucks. Effortless to play, and dependable to maintain. It has all the little touches that take a horn from good to great.

                            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.

                            This 5-digit Selmer Mark VI Alto from 1955 just got a complete overhaul! It’s an excellent player, and it represents a very good value in an alto. For way less than a Reference 54, you can get an actual ’55 Selmer Mark VI with a complete restoration just finished. These first year Mark VI altos play dark, with a lot of focus and warmth, and they are punchy when pushed. They project well with a higher baffle mouthpiece. Effortless response in the low register. They’re just fantastic, and they are better built than most modern altos including modern Selmer. Plus this comes with a better pad job than any new horn you can currently buy, and it will stay in adjustment well for many years with only the most routine of maintenance. You save thousands of dollars because this horn got a new coat of ‘paint’ at some point along the way. That makes a lot of sense to me. It comes in a nice BAM contoured alto case that is similar to the Selmer Flight Cases that come with the Ref 54. Fits the horn hand in glove.

                            Nice original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto from 1956. I love the lacquer color and the engraving style from this vintage. The tone is focused and loud. The pads are older on this Mark VI, so plan on an overhaul. The neck is not original. It’s a Mark VI neck, but it has no serial number. It sounds good on the horn and tunes well, and has been with the horn for decades. But the price is way lower than it would be otherwise, so it’s your chance to get a good deal on an original lacquer VI alto from one of the best years.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1960 88979 Original Lacquer

                            Here’s a beautiful original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Alto saxophone from 1960, with 5-digit serial 88979. This Mark VI is from one of the most desirable serial ranges of all for a Selmer. The original lacquer is mostly present, and is a dark nitrocellulose, which you mainly see on the 5 digit serial VI’s. It has some wear from use, as you’d expect on a VI that plays great and that got played a moderate amount. The neck has the matching serial number to the body and is in great shape. There are no resolders at all. This horn was well cared for! The bell flare, bell, bow, and neck show no signs of dent work or past repairs. The body tube had at least one very minor dent removed where one of the post feet of the octave key was slightly pushed in. It’s fixed beautifully leaving very little trace. The pads on this alto are old, obviously. Many are probably the original factory pads. So plan on an overhaul soon, if you want to get the full experience. It ‘makes saxophone noises’ now, and it’s clear enough that this has the dark, focused, powerful, tenor-like voice of a typical late 85k-95k serial VI alto. These are great players and deserve to be well cared for!

                            If you’re looking for a stand out VI alto to get overhauled and then play like crazy, then you might want to grab this one while you can. Nice 5-digits are getting hard to find, and this one is definitely going to be a superb player when it’s repadded.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1961 5-digit Serial 96xxx Fresh Overhaul! Relacquer

                            This very clean refinished Selmer Mark VI 5-digit serial number alto saxophone is just received a high-end, full mechanical overhaul, and turned out to be an amazing player! It already played well on the old pads, with a dark, powerful, projecting, focused tone that feels almost like a tenor saxophone. Now, it’s one of those horns you just don’t want to put down. Medium dark, free blowing, effortless low register, as softly as you want to play, easy altissimo. The key feel is nice and snappy, and feels like a brand new horn. This horn had never been damaged at all, and is super clean, apart from the new coat of paint it got at some point. You can read around on here to see what a big job a full overhaul is on a vintage horn. The short of it is, this horn is totally restored. The clock is turned back to new mechanically, and it will need only routine checkups to play its best for many years to come.

                            I keep meeting so many good players who, it turns out, have never played a sax that was actually right all the way through. This one will is. It’s a joy to play!

                            The resonators are the expensive TM Custom ones, that are slightly domed brass reusable resonators like the 50’s Selmers originally came with before they went to plastic. They look good and work just right on these horns.

                            Only one available! Whoever grabs this is going to be in a really good place alto wise! If you want to get it with a new BAM case, I’ll sell you one at a great discount as a package deal.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1967 Sanborn Serial Original Lacquer Fresh Overhaul! 143714

                            JUST FINISHED with the overhaul October 2021. New photos coming soon. This thing is a screamer!
                            This is a 143k Selmer Mark VI alto from 1967. It is American-engraved, with worn original lacquer. In the 139-144k serial range, you get a kind of sweet spot for Mark VI alto tone. These are probably the loudest, most crisp and projecting VI altos, but they still have the warmth and complexity that I love in the earlier VI altos. If you want a dark VI, this is not it. But it doesn’t at all have to peel paint or be played with a high baffle piece. Use a Meyer, and you’ll sound wonderful. It’s a natural lead alto instrument – projects over a band while staying rich and pleasant tonally. Besides the ‘Sanborn serial’ price bump, which IMO used to be more of a thing than it currently is, it’s easy to understand why these became some of the most desirable altos of any kind ever made.
                            This particular example has been played a lot! The finish wear reminds me of Kenny Garrett’s alto, which looks similar (just happened to notice that), and is a sign of a horn that has been played and loved. It’s original lacquer, quite worn, and it has had a few of the typical past repairs also – slight bow dent removed, low Eb keyguard resoldered on one side, and slight push in removed from the lower C/Eb post. Bell flare crease removed, and a small dent removed from the upper body tube. All done well, so it looks good enough that you might not notice those things if I didn’t point them out. Original neck is in great shape, not pulled down or damaged. The pads are old, so plan on a thorough overhaul, and this alto will definitely not disappoint. If you’re looking for something mint, look elsewhere! I have a mint/near mint 76k, 127k, 172k and some others at the moment. But this is also a fraction of the cost of what it would be if it were mint also, so there’s that. It’s not that common to find this exact version of VI alto that is the most desirable, that is also not priced a lot higher.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1968 158302 Original Lacquer Gorgeous!

                            On hold 5/4/20 for possible buyer. One of the finest Mark VI altos I have had in the shop, ever. It’s warmer than the 140xxx VI’s, but has the same balanced, all-around beauty and most of the projection. This alto still has its original factory pads and plays plenty well enough to know that it is a fantastic saxophone. This is one of those horns that you just keep and never sell, and whoever gets it is going to be one happy person! With an overhaul down the roadm it will easily play as well as my personal VI alto, which is saying a lot. The 150k VI altos are great because they are less expensive than the 140k’s but they play just as well, with the early 150k being virtually indistinguishable from a good 140k, and the later 15x range being a bit warmer and more balanced, and less crisp and bright. This horn response really well, tunes great, and takes air well. It feels like a new horn under the fingers, which is not surprising given the top notch original factory setup it still has. It had a super tiny, 2mm ding removed under one post foot at some point, and that’s literally the only evidence of any repair that I can find, besides the new neck cork and octave key pads. It’s incredibly clean and original.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1969 176329 Original Lacquer Original Pads Excellent Condition

                            Beautiful example of an original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Alto saxophone. This instrument had only one owner, who took great care of it. It still has almost all of its original pads, and it has never been repaired. There are no dents, no dings, and no resolders. The neck is in excellent condition and has not been pulled down. A few small dings were removed when I got it – one on the bell, and a couple on the back of the bow area. They are quite hard to see now.

                            The Mark VI altos made in the late 60’s are probably the best overall buy among pro altos today for people who want the Selmer style keywork. It wasn’t till the mid 60’s that Selmer finally figured everything out on its Mark VI alto. The early VI’s are good too and have a darker, more compact tone, but by the mid 60’s you get a real sweet spot of one alto with the following features: excellent intonation, including low register and including with a classical or concert setup; even scale; a warm, medium bright tone that is neither brash, nor shrill, nor stuffy; great response and projection. Take all that, and add the basic Mark VI ‘French’ lyrical core tone, and the comfortable Selmer keywork, and unbeatable build quality, and you have a really superb alto saxophone.

                            It’s a good buy for all of the above reasons, and because it will definitely continue to go up in value over time. Higher-end Taiwanese horns are now selling for $4500+ new, when you can get a beautiful, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI for not much more. It’s kind of wild. And it’s a good time to buy a vintage Selmer for that reason, among many others. Nothing is more all-around satisfying to play and own, and nothing has stood the test of time better than the Mark VI.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1969 Original Overhauled Excellent! 165069

                            This is one of those altos you don’t want to put down. It’s just gotten a complete overhaul / mechanical restoration, which means that it feels and plays like new or even a bit better. I wanted to get this horn overhauled, because I had a really good feeling about how it played even on the original pads that it had when it got here. If you want a VI that will be problem-free for many many years, and plays better than any modern horn on the market, (and will go up in value) this is what you want!

                            This was a one-owner horn that was well cared-for for decades before now, and now it is getting a good start on a new life with a top shelf overhaul. This thing has a beautiful voice. Medium between bright and dark, rich, and resonant. The late 60’s Mark VI’s are my favorites for all-around Selmer altos, because they do basically everything well. Intonation is good, scale is even, low notes are saturated even at pianissimo, upper register screams. This has the ‘medium bow’ if you’re wondering about such things, which means the low register tunes the best of the Mark VI’s. You can’t beat a Mark VI alto like this for build quality and all-around satisfying playing experience. You get the beautiful, unbeatable tone of a Mark VI, the comfortable key work, the excellent intonation, and the feel of a new horn under your fingers, and all for less than a (let’s be honest) comparatively poorly made new Selmer alto. Plus this holds its value and appreciates, while your new horn is going to be worth approximately half the new price in about one second after you unbox it (gasp).

                            Comes with the original case, and you can add a great BAM case for a big discount if you contact me.

                            Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone 1970 184973 Original Lacquer American Engraved Fresh Overhaul!

                            This is a sweet deal on a freshly-overhauled original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone from 1970 serial 184973. This was a one-owner alto before I got it, and the guy was a pro player in the NYC/NJ area. He took great care of it, and now that it’s freshly overhauled, it is all ready for its second life. If you read around on here, you’ll see that I really love the Mark VI altos from the late 60’s and early 70’s like this. They finally got everything right on the Mark VI alto at this serial, after making incremental changes to the bore, bow length, and neck from 1957-1967 or so. By ’67 the alto hits its stride, and the 1970 is basically the same horn. Because the market is not fully rational, you can get some of the best Selmer Mark VI altos for this sort of price, even with a full overhaul, where some of the earlier serial ones will cost much more. That makes this one a great deal.

                            If you have the cash, I think you might as well buy the nicest alto you can, and enjoy playing it. Pro altos are easier to play than student and intermediate ones, and the Mark VI is among the easiest vintage saxophones to play and to own. It’s easy to get worked on, well-built, and stays in adjustment well over time. The keywork design set the standard for all modern saxophones and feels great under the fingers. The tone is gorgeous, and the intonation is good. It’s the one horn that does everything the best on average, which is why it is so popular.

                            This particular alto has a tone that is medium between bright and dark, and is a nice, balaced player. Not brash and bold like a 220k VI, and not dark and laser-focused like a 60k VI. It’s flexible, dynamic, and easy to take where you want it to go tonally with the right setup. The intonation is good, and the pads feel nice and snappy under the fingers, as they should on a good overhaul. The neck is in good condition and the neck ‘fit’ is all perfectly sealing in the tenon, which is one of those small but important things to have done on a vintage horn to take it from good to great. Cosmetically, you can see this horn has been played, and has some honest wear throughout. After all, it was lovingly pro-owned for many years, but aside from that, it’s very nice. The only past repairs are a resoldered foot of the low C guard that popped loose as it does on so many VI’s, and a few small dents removed from the back of the bow, which is now dent-free. Neck is beautiful, bell flare is in great shape. Tone holes are all great of course.

                            It’s a very good deal on a solid Selmer Mark VI alto. This would be, to me, much preferable to spending $6700 on a new Reference 54 alto, which, unfortunately, will probably need an overhaul on top of the purcahse price in order to play its best. This will go up in value, hold up better to prolonged use, and get you your money back should you ever want to sell it. It comes in the new BAM case in the photos.

                            Price reduced June 2020! Extremely good price for an original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto. This horn has older pads, so plan on getting it overhauled. But it won’t be a complex overhaul – just the regular, and Selmer Mark VI’s are easy and fun to restore at your local saxophone expert’s place. The later VI altos have a beautiful, balanced tone. Medium bright, punchy, and projecting, with a jazz mouthpiece. But still easy to rein in and play beautifully with a classical setup.  Selmer finally got the alto really nicely in tune by the end. It plays with an even scale and feels great with a lyrical French Selmer core and plenty of warmth and complexity to the tone. It’s medium between bright and dark, possibly medium bright when pushed, but it will really do most anything you want it to, depending on your choice of mouthpiece. So for less(!) than the price of a new Yamaha, you can get the storied Mark VI and own and enjoy it while it goes up in value. What’s not to like about that?

                              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.

                                      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.

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.

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!

Super projection, crisp but still warm tone, even scale with fuller palm keys than usual. GREAT, world-class alto saxophone. It’s worn original lacquer, and I like the strap hook mod to make the horn balance slightly better. If you want one of the better playing altos in the world, get this. It’s priced very low for what you get.

                                                              As close to new as you are likely to find a Selmer Mark VI alto. This has the medium bow, and a beautiful, warm tone that is medium between bright and dark. Tunes great, works with most any mouthpiece, feels great under the fingers, and will go up in value while you own it. If your goal is to get a Mark VI that looks new, this would be hard to beat. The orig owner was a pro tenor player, and he took the best care of this VI alto that you can possibly imagine. And the price is less than what you’d pay for a new modern Selmer with inferior build quality, inferior factory setup, and vastly inferior resale value. Now that Selmer is owned by a hedge fund, it’s nearly impossible that quality will ever again reach the level of the Mark VI, whatever their marketing may say.

My favorite VI altos have all been in the early medium bow range like this. Plus it’s an original Japanese market horn, which is rarely seen. One of a kind.

                                                              SOLD This is a beautiful, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto from 1958, which is a great year for VI altos. It has the desirable ‘early medium bow’ which is also what I play. This is the only vintage of 5-digit alto that has the best bow length for tuning the low register. Not that that’s super essential in a VI alto – the ones immediately after this (long bow) also are great altos, and the earlier ones (short bow) are also fine. It only becomes an issue if you are playing classical sax, small tip opening, or exposed ensemble playing with a lot of low B and C etc. In those cases, this sax stands out as having better intonation, combined with the medium dark, focused, complex woody tone of the ’58-59 vintage of VI altos. My personal 84xxx plays just like this 71xxx. This horn has the high F# which is a nice plus for most alto players. It just got a thorough playing condition job done by Matt Stohrer, and it plays well on the current mix of pads. The tone is just beautiful, and response is nice too. It’s priced very well, compared to most other nice-looking, original lacquer VI altos from this vintage. If you want to own the best, this is it!

                                                              This is an exceptionally clean and beautiful, American-assembled low A Selmer Mark VI baritone from one of the best years that still sports its original pads! I have not owned a cleaner or more pristine example of a Mark VI baritone.

                                                              This is the nicest condition low Bb Selmer Mark VI baritone I have EVER seen. It’s shockingly clean, and even nicer in person than in the photos. Sadly, the neck was lost by the original owner. No luck looking for it, and we looked high and low. For future reference, if you’re going to store a horn untouched for decades, be sure to put the original neck with the horn. Oh well. On the Mark VI baritone, the neck is absurdly simple, with no octave key, and barely any taper. It’s just a bent tube. It’s the easiest Selmer neck to replace with a better one, by far. I have an original Mark VI 81xxx baritone neck here in my necks drawer that we could discuss pairing with this horn. Or you could just get a new Series III baritone neck, which is the same as a VI neck and pops right on there. Or get Gloger to make you a custom one. His custom 12M Conn necks play better than Conn’s necks. Ok that’s a lot of discussion of the neck.

                                                              This horn is just a gorgeous player. It still has the original factory pads, and they have barely been used, so it actually still plays well on the original factory setup. The keys feel nice and snappy and everything is mechanically clean and tight like it should be. It’s warm and lush sounding, almost like a tenor, and it also feels like a tenor on your neck, compared to the much heavier low A version.  If you want a time capsule Selmer Mark VI baritone saxophone, which is something you almost NEVER see, well, you should grab this one for sure. There’s only one available to one lucky owner.

It’s the nicest one I’ve ever seen! All original. No dents or dings or resolders. I had a small dent removed from the back of the neck that is now completely smooth and almost looks perfect again. It’s astounding how amazingly nice this horn is. It’s all original pads, one owner, completely babied its entire life. It tunes well, and it has a beautiful, rich tone. I’m tempted to just keep this and play it! What a saxophone!

                                                              This is a chance to get an original lacquer Selmer Mark VI low A baritone saxophone from 1967/8 with older pads for a bargain price. This is a lot less than a new Yamaha, for a Mark VI!  This Mark VI low A baritone has a lot of projection and power, and very good intonation. The tone is medium between bright and dark –  not super dark, not super bright and thin. Depending on mouthpiece, you can take it in lots of directions. This was owned by the same player for the past several decades. He played it a lot because it plays well. It’s time for a fresh overhaul on it, in my opinion, so if you like the worn look on a Selmer, and you want it original lacquer, and you want to be able to afford to overhaul it your way, but not be into it for too much money, then that’s what this is. It’s hard to find any low A Mark VI for this price, let alone a 140k and original lacquer. It was well cared-for, and is a Euro assembled VI that has no engraving from the factory. Original Selmer case as well.

                                                              Original lacquer Low Bb Selmer Mark VI baritone saxophone with a fresh overhaul done last year, and lightly played since. This is a desirable serial 100463 dating to 1962, and it’s the exact same horn as a late 5-digit serial Mark VI baritone in every way. The tone is medium dark, and powerful, with a good amount of focus. Response is easy. This horn is free blowing and just easy to play. The low Bb means that it’s lighter and feels almost like a tenor to hold. You can see a bit of dent work done on the back of the bottom bow, and some lacquer loss from removing the bow to do the dent work. Besides that, it’s in quite good shape. The bell flare, body tube, and upper bow are all undamaged! That’s remarkable! The original neck with matching serial is also in excellent, undamaged condition. If you want a beautiful early Selmer Mark VI bari that is in great shape, plays well, and is recently overhauled, you’d have a hard time doing better than this one for the price.

This is an original lacquer, American-engraved Mark VI that was also re-engraved (over the original engraving) because a previous owner thought it should look sharper. It’s a great deal on a VI low A baritone that also plays very well on a recent overhaul.

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.

It has had some dents removed from the body tube and bow, but they are nearly invisible, and it is completely straight and in excellent condition now. I’ll add new photos once it has the overhaul done and the pads in. The neck is from a different VI bari, but the VI bari neck was always the same, and all the necks are basically interchangeable, so it will play its very best when it’s all overhauled with all new everything and totally ready to go. You can’t beat the overhaul this horn comes with, and it’s already included in the price. If you want a VI bari that plays effortlessly throughout the whole range, with a low Bb that pops right out and great even feel, really nice, dry, snappy pad work that will last a long time, and basically everything just as it should be, then you should reserve this one! The overhaul will be done soon. It’s priced like a used Yamaha, and it’s an original VI from 1964. What’s not to love?

It’s gorgeous original lacquer, and it even still has its original factory pads! That’s insane. Plus it has the rare and desirable low A key that makes it an all-purpose modern instrument. If you want this horn plus a top shelf overhaul, send me a message. I’d love to get this overhauled for someone, but it’s also hard to find one with original pads from 1956, so I haven’t wanted to do it till I see if someone would rather have an untouched one. You can play it on the orig pads, and it plays beautifully with a rich, medium dark tone, kind of ‘woody’ with a nice focused core. But it’s leaky, and really needs an overhaul to play its best! Do that, and you will have a world class bari with the best looking lacquer of any Selmer in my opinion. I’m a sucker for that dark nitrocellulose lacquer look.

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.

This beauty has almost all of its original lacquer still remaining, as well as its original pads. Nobody has messed with this horn. It is still factory clean repair wise, with the nice, snappy factory setup still intact. If you’re going to be playing this seriously, you will want to get the pads replaced soon I would think. They are currently sealing surprisingly well, for it being 50 years old, and you can play it plenty well enough to tell that it has a rich, centered tone, medium between bright and dark, with a good amount of projection. With the right mouthpiece, the Mark VI is the ultimate smooth jazz soprano a la Kenny G. Kenny G gets both love and hate from the saxophone world, but there’s no question people far beyond the saxophone community love his sound, and he plays a Mark VI soprano just like this. There are no dents or dings, and there are no past repairs on this saxophone. It’s an amazing example, and well worth the price. The hard case is in good condition. Not original, and more protective than the original anyhow. You can upgrade to a BAM Signature (best modern soprano case) for not much extra. No mouthpiece comes with it, but we can discuss mouthpiece options if you don’t already have one that you love.

There were very few sopranos made that year, and this one would have to be one of the best examples in the world. It plays well on existing pads. There was a small dent removed on the back of the body where you see lacquer missing, and the bell flare has a very bit of lacquer wear from the horn bumping the edge of the case, or possibly from a mic. 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 hard to beat. It ships in the original case in good condition.

It has spent its life in the case so far, and it still has original pads intact. The lacquer is mottled in places from sitting against the inside of the case, but besides that the horn is mint/near mint. This is a European VI soprano with real silver plated keys, and it looks beautiful. The later VI sopranos tend to have the best tone and intonation of the run, and this horn is no exception.

The pads are a mix of older and newer, mostly older. But it plays nicely on them with a warm, resonant tone. This is a great VI soprano and sounds rich, and also tunes quite well.

It’s hard to beat this horn for Mark VI soprano tone. I really like how this horn sounds, with a warm, rich tone. The engraving is beautiful as well, with a flower featured on the bell below the serial stamp, surrounded by some sweeping leafy patterns. This is one of only a small number of early VI-era sopranos sold in the London area, and it plays and feels like an American-market VI for whatever reason. This horn is original lacquer, and it has a cool look to it from the way the lacquer has aged a dark almost greenish gold color.

                                                                                  This is a rare, American-engraved Selmer Mark VI Soprano saxophone SN# 84xxx. It was a one-owner horn, and it was never relacquered, but the original lacquer was stripped, and the horn was gold-plated in the 1970’s and then played very little after that. I was thinking of keeping this horn for my collection, but after going around and around about it, at the end of the day I find myself playing modern sopranos. It’s in good playing condition, and it comes with the original case as well. There are not many of these super-desirable 5-digit, American-engraved sopranos out there, and they are very collectible and also have a uniquely dark, complex tone that is like no other.
