    $ 5,650
  • Martin The Martin Tenor Saxophone Original Lacquer Excellent Overhaul Candidate 163812

    $ 1,400

    Here’s a nice, clean, early “The Martin” tenor in original lacquer without any major past repairs, one standard overhaul away from being a blow-the-doors-down dark & woody-sounding vintage tenor, built about as good as anybody ever made a sax, with a unique tone and styling.  It does not currently play and is missing some pads, but the pads that are in there are all original. It looks like it has never been taken apart since the day it was built, and it cries out to play again. All it needs is an owner and a conscientious repairer and it will faithfully serve for years to come.  

    These are not often found in such clean shape, and this one is described accurately and priced to sell with no surprises or unhappy discoveries upon receipt, and the equivalent horn you’d see for sale on that nefarious online auction site is likely to be a can o’ worms, a hornet’s nest, and a sack of marmots all at once.  Or shortcut all that mess, buy this one, and get started on making it your own.
