Martin Magna Alto Original Lacquer Excellent Condition 206422

$ 2,650

Beautiful original lacquer Martin Magna Committee III Alto Saxophone. It has no dents or dings and is in absolutely gorgeous condition. The Magna is the most desirable Martin saxophone, because of the rarity and some cosmetic and mechanical features that set it above the rest. These include the fancy engraving, and nickel keys and cross accents on neck and bell, and keyguards. This Martin Magna Alto has original pads, so it hasn’t been messed with, just lightly played. It’s ready for new pads and its next 60 years of playing. Maybe you can be a part of that! These altos have such a beautiful tone (think Art Pepper), which is warm, dry, full, and powerful. Medium between bright and dark, with plenty of what Martin called ‘carrying power’ and we call ‘projection’ to spare, no matter how much you want to push it. These sound better with really bright mouthpieces than almost any other saxophone, if that’s your thing. But they sound great with something like an MC Gregory Model A like Pepper used. This is as nice an example of a Magna as you are likely to find! I’m getting the thumb hook screw sorted out by the way. Only one available!
