Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1956 Relacquer Great Deal Incl Overhaul! 65412

$ 8,500

If you want a 5-digit VI tenor that plays great and is overhauled to the top level, this is it. This is a great deal for this 5 digit Mark VI tenor from 1956. It’s American-engraved with original neck with matching serial number. There are no dents or dings, and the older pads were still sealing when I got it, but it was going to be time to overhaul it soon, so it just got a full mechanical overhaul with all new everything (leaving the lacquer of course) and with slightly domed reusable metal resonators like Selmer used back in the day.

Condition wise, it’s worth mentioning that it was definitely buffed when it was relacquered – the bell engraving is still visible for sure, but it was originally very deeply cut at this serial range, and the palm key tone holes are shorter than they were originally because of buffing. It still tunes fine up top, since we can easily set the key heights on the palm keys individually, but it’s worth mentioning.

With the overhaul, this an an absolutely effortless player, with a dark, powerful, focused, projecting tone that is loud and fat sounding. These 60k VI’s are always really popular with people who have played a lot of Selmer tenors, because they really have a special, dark, powerful tone that is what made the Mark VI so popular in the 50’s.

If you’re looking for a VI tenor from basically the best serial range, with a great tone, great ergonomics, good intonation, and that costs a lot less than most VI’s, and is mechanically top shape, then that’s what this is.
