The Selmer MKVII came hot on the heels of the classic and revered MKVI in the mid 1970's. The layout is slightly different under the hands and it feels very much like any modern Saxophone today, yet with elements of that vintage Selmer sound.
This particular example is in silver plate which is in good condition throughout. It was produced in 1976 and obviously due to the age there are areas where the plating is slightly worn but overall the aesthetics are good. Like all MKVII's this Tenor has a rich, full and fruity sound. For many years the MKVII lived in the shadow of it's predecessor, the famous MKVI, but since the mid 2000's we've seen a huge renaissance in players wanting the MKVII sound, playability, intonation improvements and reliability.
In summary, this is a good example of these classic models. We think this Sax competes very favourably against any of the new models on the market you could buy at this price point. It has been regularly maintained and benefits from black premium pads which have been installed in its recent servicing. When you consider a new Selmer is the best part of £5,000 and so is a MKVI (minimum), then suddenly these MKVII models scream out as a bit of a bargain.
The Sax comes complete with a Hiscox hard case with shoulder strap, please note: no mouthpiece supplied. Like all our pre-owned Saxophones it has been fully checked, sanitised and set-up in our workshop prior to sale ensuring you can buy in total confidence.
