This is a used Martin Committee Tenor Saxophone with engraving, circa 1946. It comes with the original case, neck, original mouthpiece, and Selmer neck strap. The sax itself is a heavy brass construction and has a nice vintage tone.The instrument's keys are all in good working condition, without any sticking or freezing when depressed. It is in original condition, so it shows some signs of use and age in the oxidized areas.
It also has a few scuffs and small dings. Please see the accompanying photos for detail.The serial number is #158366. The case is also original in fair condition with Martin badge. I do not have keys for the case, so it cannot be locked. You can see it has some definite wear and stitching is frayed on the corners and edges. All the latches work fine and keeps the saxophone well-protected.
It appears that the neck cork is a newer replacement. The leather key pads also seem to be replacements. There is some tarnishing and some of the original lacquer is worn away. The neck piece does not seem to have it's own separate engraved serial number, therefore I can not verify that this piece is original to the sax, although it looks as if it could be original, and fits the sax without issue. I have been told that Martin neck pieces have serial numbers engraved in them, and I can not find one engraved anywhere on this neck piece.
