This is an absolutely premium Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone with nearly all of its original lacquer intact. It even has original pads from the factory from 1962. You’d be hard-pressed to find a cleaner, more beautiful Mark VI. This has a 5-digit serial, and it is in the serial range that is my favorite for tone. These late 5-digit altos have a dark, powerful, tenor-like tone that is bigger and more complex than a typical VI. They’re among the best altos you’ll find! The ‘long bow’ tuning on this one is totally fine, with no problem on low B etc. using a Meyer.
