Selmer Mark VI alto sax, 106xxx. Buy it as-is or have it completely overhauled to peak playing condition. Great player, trademark Selmer alto sound.
A well loved sax with a long history of being played in dance bands all across Australia. One owner from new, manufactured in 1963 and original case (purchased in England). This alto has very little lacquer left and would be a good candidate for refinishing unlacquered or silver plating. This sax was repadded in the 90's and not played much since, however, it is time for a repad and mechanical overhaul to keep playing for another 50 years. If you are looking for the classic Selmer sound - look no further.
