Welcome to SOTW. Someone left you a nice gift regardless of its monetary value. Don’t be so quick to judge it’s looks. That’s a nice instrument if properly cared for and in tune. Look down to the right where it says go advanced. Click on that. And in the next menu scroll down to where you see manage attachments. Click on that. In the upper right of that menu you will see add. Click on that and select the picture that you want from whatever folder. You can select up to five at a time. They will appear on the bottom left. Click done on the bottom far right. Write at least one word and submit to reply. That’s how you post pictures that we can help you with your questions. There are many variables and pictures help immensely. Along with your general geographical location.Hello to all, I inherited a saxophone and I’d like to know more about it and it’s value. It’s a Selmer alto made in France.Mark VI it’s not in the best... thank you in advance
Probably five digit tenors are more the bomb than altos. This one's been relacquered as well. So might want to temper expectations. Three grand is around the ballpark.It is a very valuable 5 digits Selmer Mark VI and it looks very nice. If it plays well and needs no work it would be worth quite a sum of money.
No, the value will increase by the amount of money spent putting it into playing condition. That could be anywhere from $200 - $800 (more or less) depending on whether or not it needs a full overhaul. That case should be tossed and replaced with a good case that will protect the horn. But you can also leave all that to the buyer if you don't want to hassle it; you'll only recoup the money you spend getting it fixed up, so probably no additional profit there for you, although it may be slightly easier to sell if it's had an overhaul.I’ve taken a few more pictures, so does the value drop if it’s chemically clean and put back into playing condition?
