The MK VI series of saxophones are considered to be the best saxophones ever made. They were produced between 1954 – 1974, and through this time the designs and techniques used were developed. However, the earlier models are still considered to be their finest instruments in terms of tone, playability, and design.
This particular saxophone was manufactured in 1958, so it has a 5-digit serial number: 78###. The 5-digit MK VI Selmer Saxophones are some of the most sought-after instruments in the world. They have a lovely “dark” tone when played.
It is in superb condition despite it being from the late 50’s. A fine example of these impressive instruments.
