1956 Tenor Saxophone SELMER Mark VI, US-Version, without lacquer, 67xxx
A “cool player’s horn” which has surely seen a good many places is a good characterization of this Mark VI Tenor Saxophone. Built in 1956 by SELMER in France, it was exported in individual parts to Elkhart, Indiana, USA where it was then lacquered, engraved and assembled at SELMER USA.
It is evident that this Sax has seen quite a lot in the course of its 66 years of existence, because clear traces of use on the body, bow and bell testify to this. The floral hand engraving is still visible, but quite worn down. Under the edge of the bell there is still a little lacquer recognizable, which was most likely reapplied many years back.
Apart from the clear signs of use, however, this Horn plays fantastically. The low range has a beautiful fullness and the Sax radiates from bottom to top with typical Mark VI homogeneity around a beautiful centered core.
We look forward to seeing you (please make an appointment) to compare it with many other SELMER Saxophones from our Legendary Saxophones Collection.
