  • Selmer Mark VI Alto 1960 94108 Original Lacquer Great Deal!

    $ 6,950

    This is an original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Alto from 1960 that was one owner for almost its entire life until now. It was played by a pro in FL. He had a pickup installed in the neck, which I got removed and replaced with a ‘flush plug’ meaning the brass is smooth and matching inside and out. This sax is in great shape and is ready for its next owner to play it and love it for the next 60 years!

    This is about as close to buying a new Selmer Mark VI low A baritone saxophone as you are likely to find. 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!

  • Selmer Mark VI Baritone Original Lacquer 1962 100463 Recent Overhaul Low Bb Great!

    $ 7,500

    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.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 143865 Exceptional Player Original Lacquer Very Good Condition

    $ 7,850

    This Mark VI tenor from 1967 is a real screamer! It is moderately focused, medium bright in tone, and LOUD. It has effortless response, and the low register pops out easily. It just got a fresh overhaul done and plays great throughout! The pads feel nice and ‘dry’ and snappy under the fingers, and you can put as much air through the horn as you want without it breaking up, or sounding shrill. It’s a fantastic VI if you want one that has some of the warmth and complexity of the earlier VI’s (not as brash and in your face as the later ones), but has tons of power.

    Cosmetically, this horn is in very good condition with minimal past repairs and no dents or dings. It’s original lacquer and looks beautiful. When you see it, you think – ‘Man, that Mark VI looks almost new!’ Looking closer, there are a few signs that it was played and loved over the years: The Bb keyguard popped off at some point and got resoldered (happens a lot on vintage horns), and the neck shows a little lacquer wear on the side from flexing, but is the correct angle now, and was never pulled down in anything like a bad way. It’s about a 2 on a scale of 1-10 — just enough to make the lacquer fracture and fall off over time. The only other thing to note is some minor dings removed from the back of the body that are gone now. Normal stuff for a vintage horn, and nothing bad; nothing needs repaired etc. And you save around $2k versus the price if this horn had no repairs, which is significant savings! Not to mention it’s already overhauled and done very tidily and well.

    If you want a nice, powerful, beautiful Mark VI tenor for quite a bit less than a new Ref 54 that plays better, is built better, and is an exceptionally good player, that’s what this is.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 77158 Original Lacquer Very Good Condition Great Deal! 1958

    $ 11,000

    It would be hard to find a better deal on a Mark VI tenor at the moment. This horn just got tuned up by Aaron Barnard in Cedar Rapids (great repairman), and it plays effortlessly with a big, powerful tone. The tone is medium dark, and focused with lots of power. It brightens up when pushed, but this is the sort of tone that people love in a good 80k Mark VI. It sounds a lot like my 81k. The only reason this isn’t priced about $3k higher is that it had a neck pickup removed, and has had a few minor past repairs. That doesn’t matter when Aaron does the pickup-ectomy, because he puts a ‘flush plug’ in that matches the curve of the brass inside and outside. It’s like the pickup was never there. Besides that, this was a one owner horn, and it was played a lot but well cared for. The only other past repairs I see are a few dings removed from the back of the body tube and bow (bow ones are basically invisible, and the back of the body ones look like a tiny cloudy spot, for example above the serial number). And the bell flare had a crease removed and is in the correct contour now and feels just fine. Neck is in great shape aside from the lacquer loss from when the pickup was installed in the first place. As repairs go, none of these is very serious, and the horn plays just how it should.

    For an original lacquer 1958-59 VI, you’d typically have to pay a lot more than this. I’m pricing this one on the low side for what it is, so that someone can get a relative bargain on it. The market is a bit confusing to folks right now, with people on eBay and some private websites listing horns for 3-5x their actual value. I’m not going to do that. But I’ll tell you this horn would be priced much higher elsewhere, and it is an excellent value if you’re looking for tone, and not cosmetic perfection, but you want a horn in good shape, from a great vintage and serial number, and with original lacquer. That’s what this is. There’s only one available, so get it before it’s gone.
