Vintage 1954 Selmer Paris Mark VI Alto Saxophone Sax
ADJUSTED & SETUP
Model: Selmer Paris Mark VI Alto saxophone
Serial: 56xxx dates to 1954
Finish: all original finish, nice dark patina, some wear, scratches but overall good shape as you can see.
Pads: all new pads, black leather with metal dome resonators, all sealing 100%, ready to play.
Key work: everything is there, nothing is frozen or stuck. The sax has been fully adjusted and setup, key heights adjusted for maximum venting, key action balanced to a medium tension, lots of fresh corks, felts, etc, ready to play.
Body Condition: no major damage at all, some past repair work seen but overall very clean from any major dings or dents. We did notice one of the very small adjusting screws on the lower stack is missing on the lower stack, this does not affect the playing at all but we wanted to mention it.
Accessories: original case in working condition, original neck with matching serial number in good shape, end plug.
Comments: This is one SWEET sax, it not only looks great but it one of the best sounding altos we have had in the shop.. the sax has amazing tonal balance from the low Bb all the way up, plays effortlessly with a very dark and rich tone, yet still has a sweetness to it. It has been fully adjusted and setup and is playing 100%, many tweaks done to make it really sing. This is a real gem of a sax and is a real player for anyone looking for that ultimate alto sound, this one takes the prize. Thank you for looking.
