1971 SELMER Mark VI Alto Saxophone, silver-plated, 195xxx
This Mark VI Alto Saxophone comes across as a lively one. Silver-plated, it also cuts a good figure optically even though the silver is worn from some of the keys, something that, rather than detracting from its countenance, enhances its charm. It doesn’t at all look its more than 50 years-of-age, because the silvering is still largely intact and no major dents or damages are recognizable – it has evidently made it so far without accidents. There are signs of wear here and there, but that only shows that this Mark VI Alto has been played!
When I played it for the first time, I was surprised at how quickly cascades of notes flowed out of it, i.e., its excellent response is both impressive and captivating. After extended playing, I get the feeling that what I’m dealing with here is an expressive instrument urging its way to the forefront, maybe as 1st Alto in the horn section or to the virtuoso soloist spot, standing alone in the limelight, front and center-stage.
Please excuse my preference for silver Saxophones – it’s merely a subjective bias that in no way disparages the quality of other surfaces. This Sax just happens to be a special treasure longing to get into expectant hands.
