Selmer Alto 139xxx Original US Engraved Apex MK VI

This is truly top tier alto that I received in trade. At serial # 139xxx this is exactly the most desired model period for many alto players and the “Sanborn model” with the medium bow, excellent intonation as well as a very impressive powerful and loud response.  This particular alto has a kind of dark core with a very loud bark and projection with a bright edge.

The pads are very recent, owner informed me the overhaul was done by tenormadness and it feels extremely tight and easy to move around.  Everything seals well with a rather hard pad response and the appropriate Selmer plastic resos. There is nothing that needs fixing on this horn it is gig-ready and super smooth and reliable.

The lacquer is original and the engraving and finish were done in the USA in 1966.  There is no damage or repair that I have seen, besides perhaps a tiny ding here or there, nor any resolders that I could identify.  It has its original case with a non-functional zipper.

This is both a collectors piece and a fierce and excellent playing MK VI alto of certainly the most desired model made.  Grab it!
