I have a MVI and a MVII that have been sitting for about 20 years and need an overhaul. I can only afford to have one done. The VI had been overhauled before it was bought in 1972 and was handled pretty rough through 1978. The VII was a college horn and spent lots of time in many honky tonks and has the battle wounds that go with that. As far as playing, the VI was much easier to play altissimo, the VII had a great classical sound. Which one would get the vote of my fellow sax friends? I live in NW Louisiana and don't really know of a repair guy around here, who would be best to ship it to for around a 1500.00 overhaul.
