This is a 1974 Selmer Mark VI Alto, a professional Alto that was in production from 1954-1974. Serial number 239xxx. It was my personal instrument for the past 7 years, and it pains me to let it go, but after moving into a different career it does not get played as much as it should and it is time for someone else to enjoy it. This horn has incredible intonation, tone, ergonomics (for a 50 year old horn), and evenness through out its whole range; and its original lacquer is about 90% intact. It has no dings or dents, although the neck shows signs of a repaired pull down from a while ago. Only normal wear in usual contact spots. When I had bought it I had it fully overhauled by Coles Woodwind Shop in Saratoga Springs, and it still had all of its original pads and springs. It comes with a "Gap-cap" which makes it have a snug fit in the case to eliminate risk of damage, the original end cap from when I purchased it, as well as the Protec Propak case pictured, which I used for "doubling" gigs. Local pickup only.
