SML [Gold Medal] Alto Sax. Model: Gold Medal I, Pichard. #19k would put it at 1965-6 by SML charts, Finish: gorgeous original lacquer body & nickel plated keys, with elements of the Gold Medal design in engraving and key guards, and rolled tone holes that date this horn to that lineage.
This sax will prove to be one that perks my interest in research and tone. I already had respectable players in the shop verify that this sax is a "good one" with excellent ring to the tone.
It has all the SML traits you love: rolled tone holes, adjustment screws, optional G# articulator.. Hard case, Leblanc, from France.With nickel end cap and clarinet shelf (on a hinge). Bias note: I play on an SML Rev D alto. We have an AUDIO FILE of this actual sax online! But I can't upload that to this listing. Item #:WWS7.0E8.35.10121.6-C0.
