1969 SELMER Mark VI Tenor Saxophone with engraving, high F#, 170xxx
1969, an incredible year in Jazz! Miles Davis debuts his first Fusion album “In A Silent Way” and John McLaughlin appears on the scene with his “Extrapolation” disc. Jazz-Rock is picking up speed. And exactly the same can be said about this Horn!
A wonderfully balanced Instrument from top to bottom and equipped with high F#. No discrepancies in volume from one tone to another are discernable. Do I hear a Classical musician knocking at the door? Its harmonious intonation is immediately noticed and drives ratings swiftly upwards. The timbre, too, is impressively consistent throughout every register. No tonal discoloration is found, like a painting done with one brush.
The overtone structure helps the tonal tapestry into a bright, open sound which is additionally clad in a pleasant volume, unassertive, not in need of restraint – the golden mean, as it were. Its smooth mechanics are just one more reason to move it up to the first row.
Finally, its outward appearance is more than attractive – it was newly lacquered in the past. So, for anyone who values not only a good-sounding and even-tempered Mark VI Tenor Saxophone, but also a respectable outer appearance, this Horn is as good as gold, in the true sense of the word.
