    Mark VI Tenor 116xxx unlacquered
    Theo Wanne Gaia 7*

    Was playing a 1946 The Martin prior to owning this, it had a great sound as Martin's do but the Mark VI is just something else. The Martin is not a bad back up horn though

    Mark VI Tenor 122K, great great horn! I was lucky enough to inherit it from my grandfather, and its the best horn I have ever played. I keep trying to find a suitable backup for the gigs where you don't want to take a mark VI too, but non stack up acceptably in my opinion! And as much as I love my horn, I love the overhaul I got done on it by far the best money I have ever spent It plays like a dream from altissimo to subtone Bb. I just picked up a Mark VII tenor that I have to sell for monetary reasons and it comes close but not quite my horn I would admit however with a good overhaul the 7 would be a contender!

    Joined the club yesterday. Immediately disassembled it and soaked it to clean some of the crust off, hoping to lose some of the gross lacquer as well. LOL Small amounts of lacquer flaked off but it's still pretty crusty. All back together and playing brilliantly again!

    I am now back to the VI owners' club with a near-mint 1968, American-engraved Mark VI alto. She needs a repad to play with her full potential, but as of now, she does sing decently with her original pads.

    New member. 1968 Silver tenor with gold wash bell. Silver plate is 100%, has been sitting in the case for 30 years. It has a mic pickup in the neck unfortunately. It was badly tarnished and wouldn't play anything in the lower stack. Disassembled, cleaned, adjusted some pads and it's playing perfect other than low b and c. Has a couple minor leaks that I'm confident will resolve that issue.
