This is a late model “RMC” Martin alto sax, serial number 218753. Dating to the mid 1960s, this horn is similar in look and construction to a Martin Committee III (“The Martin Alto” series). Available for a low price, this is a solid budget horn for lovers of vintage American saxes.

 

This alto was relacquered awhile back, but done well. As you can see in the photos, the original engraving is still clear and defined. The body and neck of the sax are straight, and it doesn't appear to have ever seen any major damage or repair. The “newer” lacquer is just about flawless with no real wear to speak of. The original neck does show the matching serial number, and has Martin's unique octave key design and neck tightening screw.

 

This sax was repadded a few years ago, with pads matched to brown plastic resonators. Pads are in excellent shape, but there are some leaks, especially at low C and below. The sax will need an adjustment/minor regulation to get in proper playing condition. Pads are good, so with some tweaks, it'll be a solid horn for a long time to come. We are selling it as-is. Ships in a hard case.
