Selmer Paris Mark VI Professional Tenor Saxophone SN M 194259 Original Lacquer.

This vintage Selmer Mark VI has had only two owners, and I kept this horn in its case, in a closet for over 30+ years,and it wasn’t played at all. I have owned it since 1974. The lacquer is original. The serial number is M 194259, so it is listed as being built in 1971.Its pads, finish, engraving, springs, corks, and felts are in excellent condition. It has a few small dents around the top of the bell flare as far as wear goes, but none in the body tube. The original neck fits snugly, and it’s also in excellent shape and the octave keypad and key mechanism work perfectly. The neck cork is new and fresh.

It has pad resonators which give it a wonderful, powerful sound, a beautiful, rich low octave and crisp, clean highs. The intonation is accurate throughout the range of the horn. Its key action is precise and fast which makes it fun to play. The sturdy, slightly worn vintage Gator gig case is included along with a factory tenor mouthpiece. The stand is NOT included.

It has never needed any major repairs, has had a few minor adjustments and is good to go out and play now. I played it about two weeks ago, and it was as clear and beautiful as any tenor could possibly be. In every way, this is a beautiful horn,capable of great sound with the right player. I am not using it because I am older now and play more alto which is lighter for me, so my tenor needs a good home with someone who will play it and enjoy it as I did.
