    Hi,

    Selling my MKVI tenor. Overhauled one year ago and just serviced (Pascal Verequin). Nothing to do...just play.

    No resolder, neck never pull down. Mechanism fast and smooth.
    Serial 62xxx
    Picture tell the rest of history.

    No trades.
    Asking $8900usd shipping include to CONUS and Canada. Ship from Montreal.

    Thanks

    Ok now open to trades...if you have a beautiful later Mark VI send me a PM

    Horn is leak free so, I offer a refund to $150, in case the horn need an adjustment after shipping. But not if you want to do your own setup...

    So let me know!
    Have a good day.

    curios - for relaqs- they run around 7 or 8 in 5 digit land...or so right? but an original with no laq will go for 2 or 3 more. How can people tell if a horn was relaqued and then stripped?

    Not making any coment on your horn sir. it only made me wonder.

    Dry:
    Usually with a re-lac the engraving shows some fuzzy definition. Most repaimen like to buff the metal down to bare so they can get a nice smooth lac job. A lot of purists claim that the buffing process heats the metal in places and thus causes uneven annealment. They also claim it hurts the tone, deadens the sound, and effects the overtones of the bell. People have been arguing for years over this very topic. I know a trumpet bell will ring if you flick your finger nail on the edge. It if has been bent up it won't ring. So, there will never be an agreement on the subject!

    That is a new twist to me, and I thought that I had heard them all. This materials scientist would challenge those "purists" for data, and compare the alleged temperatures observed with the fractional melting point at which sufficient diffusion occurs to provide local annealing.

    Another gedanken: What happens if you anneal metal that was already annealed? I posit that a short time at a similar temperature would not have sufficient thermodynamic driving force to cause any perceptible change.

    Some trades request, just clarified that I open to partial trades only, but I prefer to sell so, shot me your offer.

    People, I agree with you. But, I said purists. There must be a reason for a re-lacquered MK VI to sell for sometimes half the price of an original lacquer horn.

    Let ignorance prevail in its own territory. The OP has stated that this is an original lacquer horn, so your dispute and misinformation is not appropriate here.

    This is the best 5-digit deal I've seen in a while. SOTW sometimes does not do justice to sales like this. I'm convinced you could sell this horn for more then $10k right away should you find the right audience for it.

    My own 63k looks very similar to yours. It's an awesome playing tenor. I wouldn't sell mine for any money.

    Good luck with your sale!
