One of my long-time customers came to me with this tenor. He had spent a fair amount of time in the 90’s recording with Randy Brecker. During that period, he got to know his brother, saxophone great, Michael Brecker. After some discussion, they came to an agreement, and he walked away with one of Michael’s horns.
The horn is a Selmer Mark VI Tenor. It is a true player’s horn. Lacquer wear, a couple of insignificant solder joints re-soldered, and a couple of minor dings here and there. That being said, this tenor stands with the best of them. It still has the pads, resonators, and most of the same keys corks as when Michael played it himself. The setup was left as is, and just played. It is still in great playing condition.
"Normal" Brecker era 80xxx tenors typically sell for $10,000-$15,000. Because of the history and documentation of this particular instrument, its value is significantly greater.
We will be accepting offers on this fabulous horn until 12:00 pm CST on April 30th. A minimum reserve is set. To make an offer, please email email@example.com. The highest offer made by the deadline that exceeds the reserve will have the privilege of owning this Brecker tenor.
Feel free to contact us with serious questions and offers only. You are also welcome to come check it out in person.
