    Martin Comm II Alto Saxophone 142391

    $ 900

    Martin Committee II Alto Saxophone in good condition with original lacquer. These horns play really beautifully, with a rich, warm, centered tone. Most people have never had the pleasure of playing them, as they were only made for a couple of years in the 40’s before Martin was forced to redesign because of patent disputes on the tone holes, I am told. Anyhow, this is a great price for an original lacquer Committee II. The pads are old, so plan on a repad, or at least on replacing several. I could discuss options for having that done pre-sale if you like, but since this is on consignment, I can’t overhaul it in advance.

  • Martin Handcraft Alto Saxophone Original Silver Plate Very Good Condition 75488

  • Martin Handcraft Typewriter Alto Saxophone Original Silver Excellent Condition 98334

    $ 900

    Beautiful original silver Martin Typewriter alto saxophone. Every single key is a has a round pearl button – it’s a wonderful instrument to see! I love how unified it is from a design perspective. The palm keys and pinky table are my favorite. A necessity for any serious saxophone collection. This is also a beautiful player when overhauled, and has a wide, warm, sweet tone that is hard to beat for a 20’s sound. This Typewriter alto is all original – nearly all the original silver plate is present, as is the gold wash. The neck is also in very good condition. If you wanted to overhaul this, it would be bright, gleaming satin silver and look nearly new. Or just keep it and treasure it, or leave it on display as a showpiece. The typewriter was a beneficiary of the 20’s Saxophone Craze – there was such a strong market for saxophones that all kinds of interesting designs blossomed onto the scene. These are rare and hard to find, and this is a great price for one!

  • Martin The Martin Tenor Committee III Original Lacquer Fresh Overhaul!

    $ 3,500

    Photos just updated late June 2020! This beautiful original lacquer The Martin Tenor just got a complete overhaul and restoration! It’s gorgeous, and it feels like a brand new horn under the fingers. The original lacquer is beautiful, and the neck, body tube and bell are in excellent condition. There are no resolders, and aside from a standard bow dent that was removed nicely, there were no past repairs at all! This horn was one owner, and it still had its original pads when I got it. Now, it just got a complete, high-end overhaul, and it is one of those powerful, projecting-but-dark, tenors that I love so much. The Martin Tenor is just such a fantastic tenor. Bold, full-throated, room-filling sound. Excellent build quality and design. Beautiful lacquer and engraving. All American manufacturing – these horns came with a 50 year warranty! Fifty Years!

  • Martin The Martin Tenor Committee III Original Lacquer Old Pads 167261

    $ 1,750

    Great deal on an original lacquer The Martin Tenor Committee III. This horn has older pads, and actually does play on them, but plan on getting it overhauled.

    Previous repairs – the thumb hook is a replacement. The original thumb hook often gets lost on these, because it had an odd design where it only attached by a small post with a leveraged arm coming out that let you torque it easily.
    Besides that, you can see some lines on the back of the bow area where it looks like some small dents were probably removed at some point. Same thing on the bow guard. The two resolders you can probably easily see as they are clearly photographed – lower post of the C/Eb key and the key guard foot right beside that on one side of low Eb. The neck tenon is also resoldered. You have to take it off to do a ’neck fit’ because of the way the neck tightens, so I’m thinking that’s what was done there. The pads are old, but it actually plays on them, so you can easily tell that it is a very strong player. These horns are built like tanks, so this one is in plenty good condition to play its best for many more years to come if you get the pads replaced. Or you could play it for a while on the old pads before doing that.
