1975 Selmer Paris Mark VII. Tenor saxophone (serial number 244XXX) with the high F# key, beautiful early Mark VI style engraving, and 98% of the original lacquer.This horn has sat in the case since the early 1980's so I'm sure it will need an adjustment and/or some pads. The Spring Semester is a great time to upgrade your talented daughter/son's instrument to a PROFESSIONAL model! When the Mark VII's came out, the true Selmer critics downplayed it because of the enlarged low C and Bb keys... Fast forward 37 years and the Mark VII's are being recognized as being very EXCELLENT instruments.
In fact, some think they get a very similar sound to the legendary Mark VI instruments - at a fraction of the price. This early tenor is a 1 OWNER instrument (adult). This professional tenor is in SUPERB used condition, and is a BLAST to play!
It plays with a wonderful tone, has very good intonation, has an even scale, and is very versatile between concert and jazz music. Here are the purely cosmetic things that I would want to know about if I were purchasing this saxophone: Neck has ZERO pull down and has been stored in a neck pouch all its life, and the body of the instrument shows WAY LESS THAN NORMAL wear and tear (please look at my pics)... NONE of these cosmetic things affect the wonderful tone of this saxophone at all.Pads appear to have been changed as needed. This tenor has sat in the case since the early 1980's, so I'm sure it will need a good adjustment and a few pads.
