Selmer Mark VI 145k tenor sax

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor Sax # 145,xxx

Original lacquer (70%)

American assembled & engraved

$ 6,650


This 145,xxx Mark VI tenor retains approximately 70% of its original lacquer. The bell flare and bottom bow has never been damaged and there is minimal evidence of a few past dent repairs on the body tube.

The neck retains around 40% of the original lacquer and some of the lacquer loss is under the octave saddle. This makes it hard to be sure if the ever was a pull down repair. At any rate, the neck is in nice and “factory-round” condition.

The horn has fairly new pads with the period correct plastic resonators. We have gone completely through the instruments to ensure it will stay in great playing condition for a long time to come.

A lot of players seek out these 1967 horns for their sound and tone feel. This one is typical of the vintage - It is quite focused and punchy and in the middle of the bright/dark spectrum in terms of the sound color. It is very quick responding and has a narrow and “locked-in” tone feel. Mechanically it is very tight and precise and just flies under your fingers. A great example of classic 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.
