A superb and totally original SELMER MARK 6 alto saxophone, made in France in 1965, serial #125,965

Acquired by us earlier this year, together with half a dozen vintage saxes from a collector.
Cigar-Cutter Selmer, a good pre-war Balanced Action Selmer tenor,  two M6 altos and a few other pieces.  All are now in the process of being brought back to life, slowly, a pad at a  time.

*** This M6 was built for the French market and wears 90% French lacquer .  Please number stamped on the neck tenon.  Price includes original cheap French case + a new ProTech.

*** Older  dents to end-bow, now balled and burnished out by our best technician.  clean original instrument.  ALL pads and key-silencer corks replaced by our shop. NOW READY to ship!

This one's clean, does have high F#, no re-solders, no serious dents or damage. Keywork still tight, minimal wear to the original finish, but several lower stack keys, low B & Bb pad-cup show minor toasting to the original lacquer.

Original "Soloist C-star "  Selmer-Paris mouthpiece.

 Use a VanDoren 2 1/3 or 3 on a modern Selmer mouthpiece and you'll be amazed at the bright Mark 6 sound. 

We have no hesitation in recommending it to the most particular musician.

*** Better than a new one?  In OUR opinion, ABSOLUTELY!
