This week, Sandro and Tom show off a vintage Selmer Mark VII Alto Saxophone. Serial number 227xxx.

The lacquer is mint because nobody has every wanted it. Mark VIIs have horrible ergonomics. I don’t know what Selmer was thinking. Any Yamaha 62 beats a Mark VII any day of the week. They are cheaper too (believe it or not lol).
tom looks drunk as hell
Thanks for the vid! I’m curious, would it be possible to find out what mouthpiece Tom is using? I’ve seen similar ones like it that seem to sound similar but I’ve never been able to track down it’s name.
They are great horns!
i have a mark vii alto and i have to say i love the tone of it. i would not have anything else (except maybe a mark vi)
love your videos. miss you guys!
That sounds great! I have a 1979 Mark vii tenor I bought in 1982, and the only thing I disliked about it was operating the low keys with my little girly hands.
call this a review ? click bait
