Selmer Mark VI tenor sax 119xxx original lacquer

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor Sax # 119,xxx

Original lacquer (85%)

American assembled & engraved

$ 9,700

We are selling this Mark VI tenor on behalf of the great jazz player Ben Wendel. He enjoyed the horn for a number of years but has now decided to let it go.

It retains approximately 85% of its original lacquer. It has a fairly recent overhaul by The Horn Connection in LA and is setup with red colored pads and the period correct plastic resonators. We have gone through the horn to ensure perfect playing condition.

The side Bb and C key arms have been professionally modified to imitate the earlier Mark VI style mechanism. Neck, bell flare and bottom bow are all in great shape. The only slight evidence of past repair is a little lacquer loss around the low Bb keyguard feet - possibly due to a resolder.

The horn is a terrific player! There is a beautiful balance in sound between highs, mids and lows, and a kind of shimmering elasticity to the tone. You can play it warm and round or with a sizzle on the brighter side of neutral yet still with a complex and shapeable sound that most players will connect with.

Top notch Mark VI!

If you have any questions about this horn, please feel free to give us a call at 212-683-2985 or email us at info@kbsax.com.
