The Martin Alto Sax
This is a vintage “The Martin” Committee III alto saxophone in original lacquer, serial #169123. The original lacquer finish is in great condition showing typical play wear. These altos are great free blowing players and are an excellent choice for anyone looking for a serious player under $2,000. This one in particular has a ultra quick response and plays on the brighter side of the color spectrum. It packs quite the punch as well. The projection on this alto is fantastic. 
The body tube, bow, bow cap, neck and bell are all in nice physical condition. All of the posts, rails and guards are in good shape and do not show any history of re-solders. There is some wear around the bell flare but nothing serious. The bow cap is in perfect condition and has never been dented or pushed in. Its original neck with matching serial number is with the sax and is in great shape. This alto is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. We are going to set it up on its current set of leather pads and brown plastic resonators. All of the necessary materials will be replaced and the key work will will be precisely regulated. This sax ships out in perfect playing condition. 
The Martin is a powerful player and is a versatile choice for the working saxophonist.
