This is a beautiful 1956 Mark VI tenor! It is very unusual that we see
a 5 digit as well kept as this one! It retains close to all of its
original lacquer with just a little wear on the palm key touch points,
behind the neck cork and on the thumb hook. There is a dime sized spot
below the thumb hook where a small dent was removed. Besides that,
there is no evidence of any repairs - bell flare, bottom bow, body tube
and neck are all in good condition.
The horn is newly repadded and features all new Pisoni Pro pads with
the original resonators. The setup is perfect and when playing this
horn, you immediately understand why these vintages of Mark VI horns
are so highly sought after! It is resonant, super quick responding with
a beautiful mix of sizzle and colorful depth of tone. Effortless range
and a wonderful precise mechanical feel that at the same time feels
light under your fingers. Truly a world class player in great condition!
