Sorry to be 13 years or so late on reply - just found the forum.I did some searches, and I didn't come up with a thread like this, so I hope I'm not duplicating. :shock:
OK boys and girls, so it's fess up time. Given all the Mark VI threads around, I thought it would be kind of fun to see how many of the 16,000+ SOTW members actually own one or more of the horns that people either a) love, or b) love to hate
So, to all of you proud (or bashful) Mark VI owners, let's do a head count.
Include the type (SATB or whatever else) and anything else that might be interesting like S/N range, unusual model (eg: varitone, low A alto), etc. etc.
So here goes my list. In total there are 4 in my horn family:
Soprano: 266XXX with a high F# key
Bari: 147XXX low Bb a relaquered horn
I have a French made Selmer Mark VI, serial number 155XXX that I received as a sophomore in high school. I'm 68 now and just began to play again as entertainment due to the Covid. It is original except for a few pads and felt. Lacquer is about 75%, excellent shine, reworked neck due to a bend.
