From the Selmer Mark VI catalogue:
"You'll almost feel you are playing a tenor, so light and comfortable is the action of the Selmer Baritone. And with good reason - keys are actually closed together, and Selmer Balanced Action gives an easy touch that enables you a play tricky passages with amazing facility. It's easy blowing too, speaking with a full, powerful tone, and with an edge that cuts right through the brasses. Superior design makes the Selmer free from many of the mechanical defects that plague baritones: key mechanisms are away from the body to avoid jamming in clothes; rod and key arms are extra stout to minimize regulation problems."
With all that being said, the Mark VI has become one of the most sought after and storied saxophones in the history of the instrument. This Bari is in particularly nice shape, having most of it's original lacquer and was played by a single owner. It's rare to find a single owner instrument let alone one in this condition. This is the horn of many Bari player's dreams.
