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

$ 7,350

Freshly overhauled with domed nylon resonators (much like what would have been originally installed on this instrument at the factory) this Mark VI tenor is in good condition and plays very well, with a full voice and very even up and down the scale.  The spring tension are currently set moderately heavy, and although this instrument is over 50 years old the overhaul combined with the spring tensions make it feel and look almost like a new instrument. The spring tensions can be adjusted before shipping if you have a different preference, but the lacquer is still going to look nearly new!

The original lacquer is in exceptionally good condition, and this horn might be what others would describe as “mint condition” due to the lacquer, but there are a few past repairs to mention that bring it out of that rarified atmosphere and bring the price down without affecting the tone.  These repairs were very well done, and each has been addressed with care and competence: a resoldered low Bb key guard foot, a few repaired dents on the body, and a past neck pulldown that has been repaired (and the neck refit). All in all, a nice Mark VI that has a very tidy overhaul on it, ready to play and needs nothing.
