About Selmer Mark VI Tenor
When John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, and Stan Getz all claim an instrument, chances are it is better than your average tenor. Calling the Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone one of the greats of the twentieth century is a bit of an understatement considering how many legends play this sax. As one of the first horns of the modern era, this Selmer tenor saxophone features innovations such as a semi-removable bell, which was innovative for its time and made repairs a much easier process. The key work on this sax is one of its most loved features, hitting the nail on the head when it comes to ideal placement. In fact, the vast majority of saxes to follow use this innovative design. Players in search of a tenor with a warmer, darker tone might prefer Mark VI's from earlier production years with five-digit serial numbers, while those who like a bright tone might keep an eye out for later year models.
