Everyone talks about that "thing" a good Mark VI has that Selmer has been unable to capture since they stopped making them.
A few questions:
1. Why did they stop making them? What did Selmer think people would gain from the Mark VII that they didn't get with the VI?
2. Now that these horns are so revered, sought after, etc, why hasn't Selmer brought them back? I understand the Ref 54 is supposed to fill that void, but most opinions I read on it aren't nearly as glowing as they are for a real Mark VI. Is it wrong to assume that they would still have the tooling or casts (whatever) and whatever specs necessary to make them again? If so, why wouldn't they?
