Left Hand Keys
Description: C Pitched Soprano
Manufacturer: Selmer
Model: Mark VI
Serial #: 77316
Finish: Silver Plated
Source: yves330 on eBay.com

Note: This horn is only keyed to high D#.

This horn was listed for $40,000 but the auction was ended by the seller because "the item was no longer available."

There was a fair amount of discussion about this online when this sax appeared on eBay, since no one had ever seen a C pitched Mark VI soprano before. Pete Hales did a lot of close comparisons between various Selmer sopranos; sopraninos; as well as a C pitched Modele 22 from Selmer. In the end he came to the conclusion that this Mark VI C soprano most closely resembles of the Mark VI sopranino, not the Mark VI soprano.

For what it's worth, this is what the seller wrote about this instrument:

"DIMENSION 22.5

REGISTER FROM LOW B FLAT TO HIGH D SHARP

WHEN I ACQUIRED THIS HORN IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I SAW A MARK 6 SELMER IN C. I BEGAN TO INQUIRE OF MY CONTACTS AND OTHER COLLECTORS IF THEY HAD EVER SEEN A SIMILAR HORN. NONE HAD EVER SEEN ONE. I CHECKED THE OLD SELMER CATALOGUE IN THE SELMER FACTORY IN PARIS FROM THE FIRST MARK 6 TO THE 100000 SERIAL NUMBER AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE LISTED. CHECK PICTURES. INCLUDED IS THE ORIGINAL MPC AND ORIGINAL CASE. THE INSTRUMENT HAS NEW PADS."
