Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1968 Brass Gold Lacquered Saxophone****SOLD****

Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1968 Brass Gold Lacquered Saxophone

Selling on behalf of the Estate of the late great jazz player and teacher, George Galway R.I.P., who carefully selected this instrument for his personal collection many years ago. 

Here is a great opportunity to take ownership of this really nice example of the Mark VI tenor.

The sax was built in 1968 and has gold lacquered body and keys.

All original, the lacquer is in all round excellent condition.
There is some general wear in the lacquer on the left hand side of the body and near neckstrap ring (See Images), but this does not detract from the absolute beauty of this sax.

No dents or dings and the engraving crisp and clear.

It has been fully re-padded with quality Steve Crow ‘Marked’ pads which are all in perfect condition.

Viewing recommended but please arrange in advance as this instrument is stored off-site.

Includes: Sax, neck, original case in superb condition – no mouthpiece.

Collection from Shop only unless alternative arrangements made in advance.

 

Description

This instrument is part of the Estate of George Galway who passed away aged 79 in October 2020.

He began playing the saxophone professionally while still in his teens, as part of many dance showbands in late-1950s Belfast. 

He moved to Manchester in the 1970s and began a successful career as a music teacher, but still gigged constantly all around the country. 

George didn’t slow down in any way until about 2015, and having lived the world of jazz for nearly seven decades, he had built up an immense repertoire and wealth of knowledge about the saxophone instrument, with its many brands, series, metals, construction and playing techniques, mouthpieces and so on.
He carefully acquired a number of them over the years – both for their monetary investment value, as well as the personal joy he got from playing them. 

Each one is a beautiful example, and you can guarantee that any sax coming from George’s collection will work well for you and appreciate in value.
