The rest of the photos were taken this week. Instrument Condition: The overall physical condition of this used instrument is Good. This instrument is good playing condition - G# sticks a little until the horn warms up.
It has roughly 75% of the lacquered finish still in very good condition. Lacquer has turned a beautiful golden honey brown color.Several areas of delamination of the finish in normal wear areas. Normal wear on keys and other areas that are touched the most. Minor lip damage, a normal finish wear. Very clean, no dents, just some finish wear. Pad Condition: Pads are not new, but it doesn't NEED new pads, these pads are obviously from an overhaul not too long ago. If I were going to play it "for a living", I would probably want a complete overhaul eventually, but the horn plays and performs VERY well as is right now, no leaks, great intonation top to bottom.
The Neck: original neck - numbers matching. The Mouthpiece: No Mouthpiece, ligature, or accessories are included.
The Case: Original case in good cosmetic condition. The inside is in nice shape. Re-soldered: none that I can see. Engraving: engraving looks good, not a relaquered horn. As the JK "Best In The World" logo near the serial number.Unusual look with the nickel angel wing keyguard and keys on this honey brown looking lacquer. This has been my daily player horn for the last 2 years. I hate to sell this horn because I always get compliments on the look and the tone of this horn, but I'm getting married later this month and I need to pay for this wedding and I have too many horns in my collection at the moment. I have several other horns I'll be listing this week. The item "Keilwerth ToneKing Martelle Alto Sax Vintage Saxophone German angel wing PLAYER" is in sale since Friday, May 3, 2019.
