Theo Wanne Mantra Alto Sax
This is a gorgeous Theo Wanne Mantra alto saxophone in cognac (dark clear) lacquer finish, serial number 10003. The saxophone was played on for a short time by the previous owner and it was very nicely taken care of in during that time. The body tube, bow, bell and key work are in pristine original condition. There is zero history of repair on this instrument. If you look over the sax very carefully you might find a few hard to see scratches but the physical condition of the body is perfect, as is the original neck. 
The Mantra is a beautiful and ornately designed instrument pretty instrument. It features a ultra fluid key work system with engraving on almost every single key cup as well as engraving up the side of the body tube and the center piece on the bell. The bell flare shows the Theo Wanne signature stamp as well. Other notable features worth pointing out on this instrument is the triple neck strap ring mount, pearl touch front F and the thumb print grove on the octave key touch. The final cherry on top is the unique bell to body brace that also serves as the clothes guard. ( see picture 20 )
This alto came into our shop playing nicely on its factory set-up. All of the original pads and metal resonators are in fantastic condition. Ultimately if you are going to put a lot of play time on this alto it would benefit from a professional set-up in the near future. But because it is playing nicely as it currently sits we are offering it in as is condition to keep the price at a premium.
