For sale is an absolutely stunning collectors grade Selmer Mark VI 86xxx Soprano sax in remarkable original lacquer!


Wow!  This saxophone is beyond words and is truly an unbelievable pristine example of Selmer Mark VI soprano of the famed “Kenny G” vintage. 


There are extremely few 5 digit Selmer Mark VIs in the world.  Collectors covet this exact serial number range of 86xxx.  Said range is the most desirable serial number in all of the lands.  Such saxophone celebrity super stars as Michael Brecker & Kenny G have famously played these serial numbers which has helped to create extreme hype and desirability in these horns.


Generally speaking there are very very few soprano Mark VI 5 digits in existence.  While still extremely rare it may be more ‘common place’ to find a 5 digit Mark VI alto or tenor however its very very rare to find any kind of 5 digit soprano.


At this point in Selmer and saxophone history there wasn’t a huge demand for soprano sax as other horns so there just weren’t being that many produced.  As the sound of the times changed soprano began to become much more popular again and there was a resurgence among saxophonist wanting to buy sopranos and as we came into the 1960s to the 1970s and 80s soprano sax production was beefed up.


All of that being said, there are very few 5 digit soprano Mark VIs in this world at all…


There are only 1000 saxophones in the 86,000 Selmer serial range.


Out of those 1000 saxophones combined were altos, tenors, baritones, maybe a few other odds and ends sopraninos, bass’s etc.


Out of that 1000 combined horns, how many of those really coulda been soprano?


Out of those sopranos how many of those were the desirable American engraved and lacquered horns, with NO F# key?


Out of those remaining saxophones how many of them were destroyed, lost in the times to floods/fires etc, relacquerd, trashed?


What were left with is a very very very small number.  There aren’t many 5 digit Mark VI sopranos floating around and the chance of finding one in this exact condition is virtually impossible.


This horn for sale is 100% undeniably amazing original lacquer.  The saxophone features gorgeous highly elaborate floral engraving!  


This saxophone is currently sitting with all of its original Selmer factory pads and resonators.  When these saxophone left the factory they were overhauled with new pads, clamped shut, and then sprayed with there factory lacquer.   This order of events left a circular ring around the outside of the pads in a different tint than the pads.  This is a complete indicator of factory pads.  Since all of the pads and resonators are factory original this horn could have never been relaqcuered.   


This horn has just the right original lacquer look.  The color is that perfect lush dark golden honey with amazing engraving that wraps around the bell!  Everything on this horn looks ohhhh so right and its a perfect collectors grade example of Selmer Mark VI 5 digit.


This horn has had virtually no play time on it.  This horn was completely untouched when the tech received it and was in virtually fully playing condition.  The tech gave the horn a full leak job and did what he could do to aid in the setup.


This horn has no clicks, clanks, metal noises.  This horn is fully operational playing top to bottom.  All of the key action is opening and closing just as should be and it feels lovely.  All of this said THESE PADS ARE VERY OLD!  


This saxophone is only ever going to be able to play so good on these OLD pads..  While the horn is playable to really make this piece function at a top tier level you will have to have a full overhaul and pad job on this horn.


I have choose to left this saxophone original.  I understand many collectors will choose not to touch this horn, so its being sold as is condition with its original pads yet setup condition.  I would love to play this horn fully overhauled and hear it at its peak!


Although this is an unbelivable collectors grade instrument this horn is being sold as USED and is extremely vintage.  This horn is very vintage with some 60+ years age and is not expected to be any kind of new condition instrument.  This horn has patina that can be picked out in various places through out the entire horn with surface smudges, flea bites, Knicks, small lacquer wear, metal wear, and other anomalies associated with a used instrument of this nature.  Directly above the main Selmer logo is a small smudge of lacquer wear.  This is the worst spot on the entire instrument.  On the back tube directly under where it says “Mark VI” you will see a finger print smudge in the lacquer.  All other wear are just general tiny surface scratches or other extremely small patina associated with such a vintage old instrument!


Its really not everyday a saxophone like this comes to the market.  I love these 5 digit sopranos and think they are unbelievable horns.  I specifically seek these out and am truly wowed by this horn.  I think this is one of the most amazing horns ive had the pleasure of getting my hands on and am cherishing every moment of it.


If there are any questions im happy to do my best to go over any of it.  I recommend buying a plane ticket and picking this saxophone up locally in Los Angeles CA for free without paying for any shipping!


Please buy and PayPal confidently!
