Monster Free Blowing Tenor – No High F# Key
This is a fanatic player! TM Custom 500SL tenor saxophone in raw brass with rolled tone holes, serial number 00517.  If you are looking for the sound and free blowing response of a great 10M on a modern instrument the TM Custom is definitely the way to go. This one has an ultra smooth response to air flow and is a blast to play. It showcases an ultra rich sonic color and is an extremely versatile player. When you need volume, you can push this tenor hard without it giving out on you, and you are only limited by the amount of air you can move through the horn. Excellent projection and carrying ability. This saxophone also does not have a high F# key. 
 
The body of the sax is in excellent physical condition. It has been actively played on in the last few years but has never seen any serious repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in perfect original condition. Because it is an unlacquered instrument it does show the some cosmetic play wear across the raw brass body. 
 
The natural patina gives this saxophone is own unique look. 
This sax features the premium set of TM Custom metal resonators. The tenor came into our shop playing up a storm but still had its original factory set-up. As such, we did a complete fresh adjustment on this horn, replacing most of the material and regulating all stacks and springs. It is now in perfect adjustment and backed by our full year mechanical warranty.
 
This saxophone ships out with case and in perfect playing condition. It also includes  the original neck in raw brass and an extra raw copper neck. The copper neck plays with a slightly more open warmth compared to the standard neck.
