Selmer Mark VI tenor sax 94xxx original lacquer

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor sax 94,xxx

Original lacquer (70%)

American assembled & engraved


$ 12,200

 
This original lacquered 5-digit Mark VI tenor falls within a highly desirable serial number range. The 80k-90k range typically has a very attractive blend of tightly focused punch yet the depth of tonal color and complexity that the earlier 5-digits are known for. This particular 94,xxx fully lives up to its pedigree.

The horn still has approximately 70% of its original lacquer. The neck is in excellent condition and looks like it was never pulled down - the lacquer is intact in the area under the octave key saddle where a pulldown normally creases and damages the lacquer. It has had a bell flare repair on the lower side, some light and well done dent work on the lower body tube next to the serial number and up next to the side Bb key. The bottom bow brace also has a slight indentation - please make sure to see all pictures.

The horn has had a very recent top-notch overhaul. It is set up with top qualtiy pads (looks like Pisoni Pro) and solid brass resonators. All keywork is tight and has a wonderful smooth and fluid feel under your fingers.

As mentioned above, the sound is all you could wish for in a horn of this vintage. Very quick responding, centered yet with a nice depth and complexity as well.

It's just a really fun player that's hard to put down.
