Free Blowing Martin Tenor
This is a vintage Martin Committee III “The Martin” tenor saxophone made in Elkart Indiana, serial number 158060. These horns are ideal for any pro player looking for a solid and reliable work horse instrument. This one plays with an impressive full and powerful sound. It can be played with a lot of subdued sensitivity but it is also a horn you can push very hard. Projection on the Martin is fantastic. Its fast free blowing response has a positive spread and plenty of personality. Control and balance are both excellent on this tenor making it a very flexible player. 
 
The Martin features an adjustable right hand thumb rest, beveled tone holes, an outward tightening screw on the neck as well as a matching serial number stamp. This sax was re-lacquered a long time ago. Its current finish is in good shape with a great color and its engraving has a clear and well look as well. The body tube, bell and neck are all in very nice physical condition. There is a history for some light dent work and a small handful of re-soldres on this sax. All of the work was done professionally and the previous owner kept the horn regularly serviced. It is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting adjustment and ships in perfect playing condition. 
 
The previous owner also added a cork palm riser on the D key. This riser gives a nice feel to the palm key cluster so we are planning on leaving it on the horn. But it is no problem to have it removed. Please just let us know. 
 
This is a true player’s horn.  It may not be the prettiest tenor in the shop but it sure can play!  If you are looking for a ton of horn for under $2,000 The Martin is a perfect choice. This sax ships in perfect playing condition with a contoured case.
