Selmer Mark VI tenor sax 183xxx

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor sax 183,xxx

Original lacquer (75%)

American engraving

$ 6,200

Here is a nice 1970 Mark VI tenor. It is American assembled and engraved and retains 75% of its original lacquer. It is in excellent mechanical condition and has had a recent overhaul by a very respected West Coast repair person. All key-work is smooth and with no excess play and the pads are in very good shape with many years of normal use in them. The neck, bottom bow and bell flare areas are all in great shape!

It is a nicely resonant horn with a sound that is slightly on the darker side of neutral and a nice "depth" to the tone. These timbral qualities allow you to push hard and shape your phrasing without risking it getting too bright. In some respect these qualities are more reminiscent of the 90,xxx series than the later Mark VIses. A really nice player!
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.
