    Selmer Mark VI Alto Original Lacquer 1954 One Owner Fresh Overhaul

    $ 9,250

    On Trial June 2021

    First year Mark VI that came in with original pads! I got it overhauled, cleaned up, and ready for its next 67 years of playing time. This was a one owner horn, owned by a good player in NYC who played it seriously for several years in the 50’s and studied with Joe Allard, before putting it in the closet for the next 55 years until now. We gave it the full treatment, and it’s really beautiful, with a focused, lyrical, medium dark, powerful tone. This is a rare chance to get a first year VI with original lacquer that is just great.

    Beautiful original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Tenor saxophone from 1968. It is in very good condition with no dents or dings. The neck is in great shape, as is the bell flare and bow. The only repair I see is a nearly invisble one to the octave lever arm at the top of the body tube. (Got a bit damaged from the way it lays in the case, but the fix is superb.) It’s uncommon to find such a beautiful example of a Selmer Mark VI tenor, and this one also comes with the rare high F# key option also included. This Mark VI is priced on the low side for quick sale. It still plays surprisingly well on the mostly original factory pads! If you’re going to play it a lot, you should plan on getting it repadded before too long, though I have known folks to stretch the original pad life a surprisingly long way!

    The tone is medium between bright and dark. Not too dark, not too bright. It has a focused, lyrical core and is nice and free blowing. The later VI’s like in the 200k serial range tend to be more bright and bold playing, where the 150-160k’s are more balanced and ‘just right’ tonally. If you’re looking for a gorgeous Mark VI that sounds great, looks great, and has all the bells and whistles, and that has no hidden problems or concerns, this would be a prime example to consider. For what you get, it’s priced quite low in comparison to other similar horns that I see around. And these are only going up in value.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1963 Worn Original Lacquer

    $ 6,500

    Low price for this worn original lacquer 1963 Mark VI Tenor. This horn is on consignment for a great local player who played it constantly for the past 35+ years. It was his main horn all that time, and hence, has been played a ton. It’s still sealing on the older pads, and it plays great, but it’s not freshly overhauled and does not have tight, new feeling keywork by any means. The neck is also not original, and lacks the matching serial number though it is a Mark VI neck, and it plays great with the horn. This sax will be a dependably great player if you get it overhauled and play it for the next 35 years. It has a medium dark, focused, moderately powerful tone, and nice free blowing feel. It’s rare to find an original early 60’s VI that plays great for this sort of price. If you don’t mind the older pads and the neck, then you’re in business. I like the look of it. It’s well used, because it’s fun to play.
