105xxx Selmer MK VI, this is a sweet spot vintage of MK VI right after 100k. Most everyone who is experienced agrees that these are especially good; punchy, focused, on the brighter side yet still complex sounding. This is one that I restored years back and put a lot of meticulous care into. It has large domed brass resonators and (gold) painted pads with a really beautiful tight concise feel. In the years since I set this up I feel it has not changed much, still plays like a new horn. I recently received it back on a trade and was happy to get a chance to play it again. I’ve gone through and updated one pad and done a little adjustment.
This horn has that wonderful dark lacquer, some normal blemishes for a played horn but is in very good physical condition. It plays very powerfully with a fundamentally dark core and very cutting edge. It is a very fast and precise horn.
