Selmer MK VII Opinions? (Compared to more modern saxophones)

Hi all, I’m about to bite the bullet on a new tenor sax, and I’ve been able to find Mk VIIs in my budget.
I am shopping used, and for around the same price I’ve found cannonball vintage reborn tenors (I’ve had the
Chance to play them and I really like them)

The only issue is, while I love the sound of mk vi and mk vii tenors, I’ve never been able to play one,
And I don’t believe there are any I can try near me, I’d be buying them online via Reverb.

Opinions? I’ve heard the mk VII is criminally underrated and are often considered by those who own them to be fantastic horns.


P.s. The ergonomics won’t bother me (coming from a 1934 King H.H. white)

I currently have a two Mark VII tenors and I had a VII alto. They are decent horns and will serve you well and they are definitely not everyone's cup of tea. Best advice would be to try and play one to see how you feel.
