  2. Other Woodwind Repair, Maintenance & Modification
    Hello, This is my first post to the sax forum. I'm reaching out to see if someone in this forum can recommend a woodwind technician. I recently sold a Selmer Mark VI to someone in the Miami area. He feels that there is something wrong with the instrument in regard to the action. I need to send...

    Our #203 Enhancers set of Side Key Riser-Extensions for Selmer MK VI soprano saxophones underwent important redesigning to simplify its installation and reduce it to a totally elementary and trouble-free procedure that does not require any technical skills. The new design features all screws...

    When Douglas Pipher told me details about my Selmer Mark 6 tenor from 1957, he wrote this: "Selmer 69747 is a bit unusual. It was originally sold to Jorgensen Dusseldorf. It appears that Jorgensen became the German distributor after World War II. It shipped in June 1957. It was lacquered and...

    Because of health issues (allergy) I'm renewing my search for a gold-plated Mark 6. I LOVE my stripped 1956 Mark 6, but I fear the raw brass does things to my system that I don't like.... What do those gold-plated 6s sound like, and do you know of available instruments? I know that Bob Mintzer...

    Last year my first teacher, the reason I play jazz, the main reason I'm a musician passed away. It was a sad time and when his widow asked me to help find a new owner for his saxophone I gladly obliged. I hit a snag when the Serial number I was given placed in the horn in 1975 - a Mark VII...

    Ebay has in fact become such a large marketplace for vintage instruments. Judging photographs is not always easy, so I would like you Selmer experts to have a look at this one...

    Check out our good friend and P. Mauriat saxophone artist, James Carter, shredding on both a 1957 Selmer Mark VI c-melody saxophone (one of only 5 known to have been made) and a WWII era Selmer Balanced Action c-melody saxophone (one of only 4 known to have been made). James's performance...

    I have had a Navarro Bebop Special 7** for more than three years and love it. Over the last two years, a transitional Otto Link Double Ring 5* (which features a NY '5' on the table and a Florida small font '5*' on the side) has become my main metal piece. I was offered a s/h Navarro BopBoy last...

    I have been offered an original 1956 Selmer 5-digit neck which is great because the neck of my 1956 Paris assembled Mark 6 tenor had had a pull-down long before I bought it eight years ago. The neck offered obviously had a pick-up removed with the hole filled (see pics below). I couldn't resist...

    Hey, I was wondering about how much I could fetch for my 1954 Mark VI I acquired recently. It was a closet queen, I bought it from a guy who bought from a garage sale. Was completely all-original before I got it fixed up. I'm not looking to sell it, but an appraisement would be nice. It has...
  14. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    HI, recently I was lucky enough to find a 1967 Selmer Mark vi alto in mint condition with original Soloist D that has spent most of it's life in it's case in a closet (no really!) in a city called Mildurah in the Australian arid region, so this sax looks amazing. It played straight out of the...
  15. Yamaha
    Hi there, There is a nice high octave characteristic that I see appearing on the Selmer Mk VI players. I have a Yamaha YTS-61 and I'm wondering if changing the neck to a Mk VI neck is worth the money (I think it is about 250 dollars) I.e. achieving majority of the mk VI character through the...
  16. Selmer (Paris)
    I would like to know if there are sure-fired ways of detecting which period of Selmer horns necks can be associated with. I saw this auction in Germany and the guy who offers the neck states it was sold to him as a Mark 6 neck. How can you be sure it really is a Mark 6 neck or a later model...

    SAXOPHONE REVIEW PMXT 101 STRAIGHT (nearly straight!) TENOR By Roger Manins 4.7.2011 OK. So here we have it. A review of the P Mauriat 101. I was very curious (as I am sure a lot of you are) to try this horn, and on my recent trip to Taiwan, it was one of my top priorities. I was not...

    Just been looking at a horn that is similar to a MkVI though some would have you believe otherwise. I thought I'd see if The difference is noticeable so I've recorded them. Thought I'd stick a third one in to the mix so I recorded a quite different horn. Recorded on a Zoom H4. Otto Link...

    I played a Yamaha YTS-475 for a year now. I am in high school, and have been playing for 5 years. I want to know if Selmer is worth my time and money. 1)Is the MK VI really as good as people say? or should I try it before I buy it? 2) Is the MK VII really as BAD as I hear? or can they be good...
