Sometimes we have to follow up a more well-known, sought-after and revered player. The Selmer Mark VII had big shoes to fill following the discontinuation of the fabled Mark VI. Tragically, the only thing that the Mark VII failed at was not being a Mark VI. Talk about pressure...
This Mark VII is in wonderful physical condition with a lovely honey colored lacquer throughout most of the horn. The ergonomics are ideal for a player with smaller hands or someone who is more inclined to have a tighter space between keys. Mark VII's are fascinatingly flexible horns that can fit in a multitude of playing situations and environments.
Perhaps you like an underdog. Or a horn that didn't receive it's due credit. Maybe you are the type of player who cares most about the sound, feel and flexibility of the horn instead of the serial number. Does that sound like you? If so, isn't it about time to got your next horn?
