Selmer Mk VI Alto

I have decided to sell my Selmer Mk VI Alto.  I've had it from NEW (1974); it has the original lacquer; recently had it fully overhauled (new pads, etc); original case.
Ot's in mint condition but I have not played it for years so selling.
Also selling a new (hardly used) electronic eMute.
Can anyone advise the most appropriate place to sell it, please?  I'm based in the UK.
Many thanks.

    Most of the musical instrument stores sell on the internet and will sell a horn on consignment.

    So decide what you want to get out of it. Realize there is going to be a 10 to 15% consignment feel.

    There are more wonderful saxophones out there than there are players who can afford to buy one. So, if you want to sell it, be willing to make a deal.

    I am sitting on 15 pro level horns now, because nobody can make any money performing on them. Plus, everybody with a financial burden is willing to sell that treasure they thought they would never sell.

    Good Luck.
