Regular price $ 6,600

1934 19,xxx Radio Improved tenor saxophone. Selmer made around 2000 Radio Improved saxophones for only two years. You don't see many of these horns for sale because there are just so few out there. In fact, Selmer made around 100 Mark VI's for every Radio Improved saxophone! 

This horn was previously owned by a top DC based pro who can be seen demoing this horn. This was his primary instrument for several years before switching to a slightly more modern setup. 

This sax has been regularly maintained and is in excellent mechanical condition. It was overhauled approximately 8 years ago by Mike Manning in New York City before he relocated to San Francisco. Subsequent adjustment has been handled by Mike Manning and Eric Beach, so there's a mix of pads in the horn, all of which are in good condition. The horn still feels incredibly tight and locked in and is ready to go. Although it's not obvious, there is a very slight pulldown in the neck. The horn played so well as is that the previous owner, after consulting with Mike Manning, decided not to adjust the neck. The lacquer color is correct for this vintage and the engraving is 100% present, but the finish is likely not original. The sax comes in a gently used ProTec case which is a good match for the horn.
