Martin Handcraft Committee II Alto Saxophone
Martin Handcraft Committee II Alto Saxophone. Serial number 142466 dates this saxophone to 1941. Non-original lacquer, but possibly an old factory overhaul. Lacquer finish is around 98%. The keywork is solid nickel. Standing lion engraving. Structurally, this horn is in very good condition. There are no repairs and only very tiny dings...you have to look to find them. The pads are old rivet pads and while the horn is currently playable, the pads are old and should be replaced. Martin case is not as old as the horn...the case is probably 1950s and is in good usable condition. These are really nice playing top quality horns and lots of horn for the money.
