218,xxx Selmer Mark VI Tenor Saxophone, Original Lacquer, Just Serviced, Video
218,xxx Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone, unlacquered. I first acquired this saxophone from its original owner in early 2020. It arrived with a full coat of original lacquer. It was sold that year to a local pro who played it regularly for two years. It just came back from the same customer as a trade-in. That customer had the lacquer chemically removed during an overhaul. Knowing this history, I can confidently say it has never been relacquered and the small amount of remaining lacquer is original.
The pads are in new condition from its recent overhaul, affixed with domed metal resonators. My tech just serviced the horn, ensuring that the pads are sealing well. The horn feels alive and responsive, and plays incredibly well. It has a ton of resonance and it can project very well in all registers. The sax comes in a Hiscox case in excellent condition.
