Selmer Mark VII Alto
Hello, Mark VII alto saxophone is a very good choice. I also have a Yanagisawa 992 Bronze is great but the Mark VII remained very interesting for the price.

All agree with Maxsax.
It is a very good saxophone arrter must say anything. (Rumors)
This may not be the best that has made Selmer but hey, even when ...
As sax teacher, I could not hurt to try, and there are not really tell the MVII powerful sound, very round. The only BMOL I put my, it is serious. For playing with saxes latest issue, you really struggle and work to tame the bass.
I think it's a perfect sax for jazz combos.
And then, a good saxophonist metamorphosis can a sax.

I bought this saxophone Selmer Mark VII in 1976 (see No.) 2 years ago 850 euros in a magazine sale.
Good external condition (Case Selmer poor condition), has become a setting because it did not drop below the low D (coordination in small cork missing).
I had an alto but decent low-end and robust (Elkhardt super deluxe (!)).
The Mark VII has a very pleasant (rather mild), but a beak adapted can make more incisive. It responds very well now.
For me it's a quality / price ratio very very good (I'll never put in a Euro 3000 Mark VI, high-quality but expensive)
I saw a star to someone who asks for information (sites year / serial no exist ...) and I do not think it's normal, especially for sax is often misjudged.
For my use I would have put 9 / 10, but with the previous comment, to compensate I put 10/10

Hello all,

So I bought my Mk VII of 1977 there is a little over a year.

This is a good sax trs, the famous Selmer quality ... If we must give a p'tit least, that's for the ergonomics, especially in the serious, but hey it's the era, then, working, ergonomics is not a real problem.

I had this one sax APRS Yam Yas 25 is like moving from a Fiat Uno a Bhme ...
I tried a SERIES III, too closed too expensive, but easy in ergonomics.

I find that this sax worth every penny, I pay 1500 euros, I am more than happy! And these are the sax sax with a rating up ...

Finally, if c'tait again I would do 1000 times. With this I saxophonist sax fills.

Good to go, we go to try to catch up a flagrant injustice: the Mark VII is not a damn sax! I would be tempted to plutt dfendre fervently otherwise. I use a tnor Mk VII of 1977 prs for 12 years and can not find him in default rels. It is right across the range of Sb up to serious high-pitched most shameful, it is trs homogne in the mission (may be with a "BMOL" in the register mdium -severe) and, without being a hurricane, can be described as the sound of powerful honntement trs. I tried a few Mk VI which did not arrive the ankle (so to speak) and the MODEL, trsdsavou by many musicians, possde a grain that makes him a prcieux companion for the soloist (in small learning jazz in particular), with a velvety sound trs or, alternatively, incisive trs (Steve Coleman plays a viola MKVII, eg). Probably should look in the chapter-references to the great saxophonists Bop, the origin of the reputable and the MK VI ddain for his next one. This is the bargain of the moment, especially when the alignment score of 2 MODELS: 4000 or more for the MK VI and less than 2000 for the VII: spot the mistake! Whereas especially when the shameful attitude of those who only spculer and never play. But just reward, APRS seeing MK VI climb up the peaks (I believe a 10 500 USD rcemment on Ebay!) Rating appears to be stabilizing while the MK VII takes the bull by the BTE.
A final word about my other bagpipes. A baritone Buffet-Crampon Super Dynaction of 1961, a tame wild animal, but which shows great when done. And then, little pearl rcemment dgote at a friend who was hiding under his bed for 10 years, a Selmer Alto MODEL 26 of 1929! He came back less than 1000, in other words a Misr this beautiful instrument in silver, with a spout Solost of origin (a rve, this bill) ... But I fear too many squatter this forum if I m'tale the quality of this sax. In short, I would simply say it's magic. If you come across one, go for it (especially considering its rating)! N'coutez not gossip dplorent which approximate the accuracy or usability doubtful. No Mark VI, Balanced action or Radio Improved (Reserved for Lotto winners) can not offer such a quality / price ratio. Y will not be for everyone
