500sl Tenor – High F#, Straight Tone Holes
This is a super sweet playing TM Custom tenor saxophone made by Tenor Madness, serial number 00994. We just got this tenor in our shop and have very much been enjoying having it around. This saxophone was owned and played on as a second instrument for 2 years by a pro player on the east coast. The body is physically in perfect original condition with no history of repair. It does have some modest cosmetic play wear to the finish. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell, bell flare and original neck are all in pristine original condition. This tenor was made with straight tone holes and is keyed to high F#. 
 
The TM Custom is a tremendously versatile and free blowing modern saxophone. This one in particular has a rich sonic character on the darker side of the color spectrum. It is exceptionally responsive to air flow and showcases an amazing amount of balance across its entire range. The low end is full and robust while the extreme upper register remains full and is never thin. Its modern key ergonomics allows for a smooth and fluid play from top to bottom. This instrument is ideal for the professional tenor player looking for a rich sonic palette for use in jazz and contemporary music. 
 
All of the TM Custom saxophones are hand assembled at Tenor Madness in Waterloo Iowa. This particular tenor is still playing nicely on the original set-up. All of the leather pads and seamless metal resonators are in very good condition. This saxophone is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a cleaning and small tune up. Ships out in perfect playing condition with the TM contoured case.
