1927 Martin Handcraft Alto sax
Beautiful old Low pitch Martin Alto. This alto was made in 1926/1927. It was overhauled in 1963, stripping the silver plate, lacquering the body. And nickel plating the keys. This was a very common conversion in the 50's and 60's. This horn needs a complete repad, but would be well worth doing as these Martins are consistently. The body is structurally in good shape with no dents, straight body, etc.
Missing the low Eb roller and the lyre holder has been knocked off. Both are minor items to repair. The item "1927 Martin Handcraft Alto sax" is in sale since Saturday, March 30, 2019.
