Selmer Mark VI alto sax 89k

Selmer Mark VI

Alto sax 89,2xx

Original lacquer (92%)

American engraving

$ 8,600

 
This 1960 Mark VI alto retains about 92% of its original lacquer. It is in very good mechanical and cosmetic condition with the only evidence of past repairs being a small area of dent work on the left side of the bottom bow, two small dings that were removed from the side of the neck and a resolder of one of the low C keyguard feet. The neck has never had a pulldown and is in perfect, factory round condition. The bottom bow brace as well as the bell flare are both perfect.

The horn has a new pad job (not KB Sax) and is set up with plastic resonators. The action is perfect and the horn is smooth and fast under your fingers. It is a wonderful player with a rich, colorful tone that is slightly on the darker side of neutral. The slightly wider tone feel and freeblowing nature (especially when compared to the later 6-digit altos), combined with a complexity and depth to the sound, makes it a beautiful and expressive player!

Very well kept example of the 80,xxx series Mark VI altos!
