Martin Indiana Alto
This is a vintage Martin Indiana alto saxophone in gold lacquer serial number 37781. The Martin Indiana is an absolute classic and is perfect for anyone looking for nice vintage player on a budget. The body of the alto is in great shape for its vintage showing off its dark original lacquer finish and crisp engraving around the bell. There is some history of past repair and solder work to some of the lower key guard feet. The bell, bow and bow cap are all in nice shape. The original neck shows similar cosmetic character to the body of the saxophone but has never been pulled down. Like other classic Martin saxophones this alto does feature beveled tone holes, front F and an adjusting right hand thumb rest. 
 
This Martin came into our shop playing nicely on a slightly older student level pad job from another shop. The pads are all in good shape and do not look like they have seen very much past play time. In order to keep the price at a premium we are selling it in as is condition with out doing any work to it in our shop. It plays with a punchy free blowing response and is a super fun instrument to play. This would be an excellent choice for a fist American vintage saxophone or a back up horn. The powerful sound and sturdy build of the Martin alto also makes it a great choice for marching and pep band. 
 
This saxophone ships out playing in as is condition with a vintage Martin wood hard case.
