What’s the best saxophone in the world? In this video I try out a bunch of Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophones in Copenhagen, Denmark where I used to live and work repairing horns.
Maybe it’s the pink lacquered Selmer Mark VI that used to be Dexter Gordon’s back in 1969? It only spent 1 hour in the shop before it was sold…
I sat down and talked with my good friend and legendary saxophonist, Bob Rockwell, about our favorite topic – saxophones at our favorite saxophone shop IK Gottfried in Copenhagen Denmark. He’s had a lot of experience with Selmer Mark VI saxophones and shares his thoughts in the video.
