73,xxx Mark VI tenor is in excellent condition! It looks like an older
relac with no signs of past major repairs. The right hand thumb rest
area shows eveidence of a minor repair. The neck is in nice shape and
has the matching serial number.
The horn has a new KB Sax overhaul and is set up with period-correct metal
resonators. The keywork is perfectly adjusted and the action is smooth
The sound is everything you would expect from a 1958 vintage Mark VI.
There is a rich and deep, multi-textured quality to it, with an
excellent balance of warmth and brilliance. As is typical for this
serial number range, there is a certain width to the tone-feel, which
makes the lush, lower range easily accessible yet loads of power when
you need to cut above the band.
A super versatile horn and a great example of the early/mid period 5-digit Mark VI tenors!
