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.

The BetterSax Alto Saxophone
Over the hype of a Mark VI? Then look no further! We are now happy to also recommend the BetterSax Alto Saxophone. It is designed by me, Jay Metcalf, in partnership with Conn Selmer. At only $649, you really can’t get a better instrument at this price point.
My vision for this saxophone is to change the way we think of an entry level instrument. I want people to be able to buy this horn and not have to think they are going to need a step up instrument a few years later. If your budget is around $650 this can be your one and only main instrument no matter what level player you are. This truly is a fantastic horn and I’m excited to finally get it into your hands!
