    Re: selmer usa tenor

    I did try the Series III neck on my 164 but I also found that it didn't do anything special (the "resonance" wasn't there) when I played with it. The Mk VI neck, on the other hand, caused the sax to...

    Re: selmer usa tenor

    Yeah, it's definitely a keeper! The Uberhaul cleaned up the instrument (playability-wise) and the Mk VI neck really opened the bottom up! Unfortunately, whoever had the sax before me either really...

    Re: Closest thing to a MkVI tenor

    Just to go off on a tangent, I have played the Selmer USA's Model 164 tenor which reminds me a lot of the Mk VI. I have had it Uberhauled and have added a Mk VI neck. It's not as quick responding as...

    Re: selmer usa tenor

    The earliest ones were hand crafted while the TS 100's, while virtually identical, began to be more and more mechanically assembled. It was more cost effective but also led to sporadic quality...

    Re: Mark VI replacement neck

    I have a Model 164 which is the earlier pro version of the horn (only cosmetic differences between it and the TS-100.) I, also wanted a more freely blowing open sound and believed that a MkVI neck...

    Re: Uberhaul, Anyone?

    I'm going to weigh in one last time on this subject if I may. When I first started looking for a horn restoration I was expecting the horn to be stripped, the corroded spots polished up and the horn...

    Re: Restoring an old C Mel.

    Tarn-X likes to advertise that you just have to "...give it a dip and it looks like new!" which isn't quite true... I had my Holton dipped to get the crud out of the interior and then the tech let...
  9. Re: Looking to put a new neck on a Selmer 164: Suggestions?

    I did the unthinkable I hacked a centimeter off the tip of my MkVI neck! (Oh, the horrors...) :yikes!:
    Funny thing though... it helped the intonation out! (I guess I got lucky!) Did it affect...

    Re: Uberhaul, Anyone?

    Umm.....guys? I think you're laboring under a misconception. The Model 164 was Selmer USA's one and only foray into the professional level saxophone! It has been (erroneously referred to as an...

    You know you're a C-Melody player when you bring both your C and your Bb tenors to rehearsal and decide to play the C just because it's more fun! :cool:

    Re: Uberhaul, Anyone?

    I just had an Uberhaul done on my tenor. My case might be a little bit different because my sax is a Selmer USA Model 164. Matt Hess, my contact at MusicMedic said the guys in the shop were quite...

  14. Re: Looking to put a new neck on a Selmer 164: Suggestions?

    I talked to the tech at SaxProShop who did the Uberhaul on my 164 and he said that the original neck made the sax play better in tune than the MkVI neck (small wonder.) The MkVI neck opened it up but...

    Re: C Melody or not ?

    Again, if it's the beefier, more "tenor-like" sound you're after, you will want to go with a Martin or a King (and use a tenor mouthpiece.) I love my King and try to play it as much as possible.I...

    Re: Optional tenor neck for the Mark VII.

    I have a III neck that I purchased to use on my Selmer USA model 164 tenor. It didn't give me a better, richer or more focused sound than the original neck so I picked up a MkVI neck and voila! more...

  20. Re: Why is your first your first? and is it still 'the one' you play?

    I started on a Holton alto, changed to bari in 8th grade and stayed with that through college. I have since acquired Selmer alto, tenor and bari saxes and currently play the tenor as my primary...
