Absolutely gorgeous Martin Committee III “The Martin Alto” sax, serial number 190281. This alto was custom restored in silver plate and is beautiful to see. It needs some attention by a good tech, but with a bit of work this will be both a gorgeous horn to see and a fun sax to play.

 

The previous owner really wanted a horn that stands out, and spared no expense to make this Martin a gem. It has been factory re-silver plated, with no major buffing done during the refinishing process. The original engraving remains crisp and clean. The newer silver plating is just starting to tarnish, but is 100% intact with no finish wear. Also, the sax shows no previous dents or dent repair. There is one resoldered joint, on the lower body post of the low C# rod. I see no other prior repairs. The original neck has never been damaged and shows the matching serial number.

 

Pads are in excellent shape with brown plastic resonators, but the sax is not playing well as it sits. It needs a good tech to go through and iron out some regulation issues. Our shop is backed up for months, so we are selling this one as-is at a greatly reduced price. With a little love, this'll be a top tier Martin alto from the heyday of the company. Ships in a modern soft gig bag, or we can try to source a used hard case if you prefer.
