Selmer Mark VII tenor saxophone #296XXX

Looking for a vintage Selmer Paris horn, but don’t quite have the cash for a Mark VI? The Mark VII is a very, very nice horn, that is a power house for blues and rock. Selmer snobs turn their nose up them because of the spatula keys, so these horns are seriously under-rated.

To find out more about the Mark VII, you can read an original brochure here, on our Education Rep’s saxophone gallery.

  • Made by Selmer Paris circa 1979
  • Original lacquer
  • Will be adjusted, and any pads replaced as necessary.
  • Comes in original Vanguard case in very good condition
  • Price: $3750 
  • Email David to set up a play test of this very nice tenor.

Don’t get all caught up in the hunt for the perfect Mark VI with a 5-digit serial number. Some of the best Mark VIs were made near the end of the production cycle when Selmer started ramping up production of its Mark VIIs. No, this is not sales hype. People who have played a lot of Mark VIs, and who own them, will often tell you the same thing. The thing is, you have to try saxophones for yourself to see what’s right for you. 

Case in point, our Education Rep, Helen Kahlke, is a not only a sax player, but also a vintage sax specialist. She took one of the two Mark VIs we have—yes, in its current, un-overhauled state—to rehearsal in a big band she plays in. All the players who tried it (who combined have well over 100 years of playing experience), thought the horn was amazing. None of them had ever played a Mark VI that was as free-blowing as this one was. It plays and sounds exactly like a Mark VI should: simply sublime.

  • Solid student model Yamaha alto saxophone made in Japan.
