Holton - Wiedoeft
This is a very pretty vintage Holton Rudy Wiedoeft alto saxophone, serial number 33480. The Construction of the Wiedoeft features a high trill Eb key and a trill G# key. It also has an extra resonance key on the bow as well as a back door Eb key on the back of the body tube. 
 
This alto was at some point re-finished. The job was done very well and  was done a very long time ago. The body is in very nice physical condition. Its original engraving also looks especially crisp and well defined across the bell area. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in terrific condition and show no history of major repair. This saxophone also includes the original neck in nice condition. The neck was very slightly pulled down in the past. It does have the original adjusting cork socket. 
 
This alto came into our shop with some very old seamless leather pads and would need to be overhauled before it would be in playing condition. Because this is a rare and unique collectors item we are selling it in as is condition to keep the price at a premium. 
 
The alto does include original accessories and the original wood hard case.
