Great Price on a Beautiful THE MARTIN ALTO

This is a beautiful condition, all original “The Martin Alto” sax, serial number 164136. This alto has greater than 95% original lacquer intact and is stunning to see in person. You don't see them looking this pretty very often!

 

This is a great alto for serious players and collectors alike. It has obviously spent most of its life inside its case. It came to us on old pads and will ultimately need a repad if you are going to do any serious playing on it, but because of this, we are pricing it very low, leaving you plenty of room to get that work done. It needs pads and material, and there are couple very minor repairs that can be done. One foot of the low Eb keyguard has popped off and will need to be resoldered, and there are couple posts that have been subtly pushed in to the body tube. The sax shows no major past damages and needs no significant repairs. The original neck is included. The neck shows the matching serial number, and it has never been pulled down.

 

If you have a preferred tech who can do the repad for you, or if you have an at-home repair bench and know your way around it, this is a fantastic opportunity to pick up a sterling condition Martin alto for a great price. Should be a tremendous player once properly restored, and the work is about as straight forward as it gets. Does ship in a hard case.
