Selmer Mark VI tenor sax 79,xxx

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor Sax # 79,xxx

Original lacquer (85%)

Paris assembled & engraved

$ 11,000

This beautiful 1959 Mark VI tenor retains approximately 85% of its original lacquer. There is no evidence anywhere of any past major repairs. The bell flare shows a small crease in the lacquer as a result of a small repair. The neck has a small amount of lacquer loss on each side, which could also indicate a past pulldown repair. The neck itself is in 'factory-perfect' round condition. The bottom bow is in perfect shape with no signs of repairs and the only solder repair is found on the top keyguard foot on the bell (for low Bb).

It has a very recent overhaul (by Shelly Tanabe) and is in perfect mechanical condition. It is setup with Pisoni Pro pads and seamless metal resonators.

The horn plays with a strong projecting sound. There is a comfortable, slender focus that makes it feel very easy to articulate fast lines and move effortlessly through registers. The sound is in the middle of the dark/bright spectrum with the classic Mark VI "buzz" always present. A beautiful example of a highly sought after 1959 vintage!

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.
