Selmer Mark6 tenor sax 65xxx

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor Sax # 65,xxx (with a 75,xxx neck)

Original lacquer (85%)

American assembled & engraved

$ 11,500


This early 5-digit Mark VI tenor is in excellent shape! It has around 85% of the original lacquer remaining and a new complete overhaul by the great repairman Jim Germann has put it in perfect playing shape! Everything is tight, the action precisely dialed in and it is mechanically in tip top shape.

Besides a past bell flare repair, the body is in excellent condition with no other signs of past repairs. The bottom bow brace is in perfect shape and has never been pushed in.

The neck was at some point swapped out for a serial numbered 75,xxx neck. It was most likely a choice done by a player preferring the sound of that neck over the original and it is indeed a perfect match with the horn.

The horn came to us with a patch on the side of the neck. We decided to redo the patch with a plug that is flush on both inside and outside of the neck tube.

It plays with a super resonant and lively sound. There is a wonderful “zippy” feeling - brought on by the smooth mechanics coupled with a vibrant tone feel. It has a good amount of the classic Mark VI buzz that is balanced nicely with a wide and colorful tonal spectrum.

The different serial number on the neck puts this horn in a lower price bracket. However, from a playing standpoint there is absolutely nothing missing!

Classic, early 5-digit Mark VI in top notch playing condition!
