This is a listing for a very nice Vintage 1970's CORTON FOREIGN Tenor Saxophone with carrying case and extras. These Corton saxophones were made in Czechoslovakia by a company named Amati from what I have read.
This great saxophone comes to you in used very good and clean overall condition. Body of the sax is still nice and bright. Body shows only some small finger print smudges, light scratches and some small / light spots of corrosion in spots.There are no dents or bends that I have noticed. All of the keys and valves seem to be smooth and in good working order. Some of the keys are however missing the key finger inlays. The valve pads all look to be in overall good condition, but we have not tested them for function. Bell of the saxophone is in very nice shape with no dings, dents or bending. The words "Corton Foreign" with some designs is etched into the front of the bell and the number 157148 above IL in a circle, are etched on the back of the instrument. The Bow at the bottom is in very nice shape with no dings or dents. The neck of the sax is in as good of shape as the rest of the instrument. It is marked "Super" on the Octave Key - The neck shows no dings, dents or bending, just some minor smudges and scratches. The cork where the mouthpiece attaches is also in very nice condition. The Mouthpiece is in very good shape, with a reed installed. Piece has no breaks or cracks, just shows some minor corrosion on the metal clamp holding the reed in place. Mouthpiece cover is also included, showing some minor spots or corrosion. In addition to this great instrument you will also get a Corton carrying case and a number of extra parts. 22 - Valve Pads of various sizes. All look to be in very good physical condition. 1 - Small white box, containing small parts.
1 - 2 inch wide Leather and material strap. Still in very nice condition, but shows some surface rust on the buckle. 1 - ½ inch wide nylon strap.
Also in very good condition and marked "Amati" on the metal piece. 1 - Sheet music Holder. 1 - Cleaning chamois - has line attached to pull through the instrument. All of this comes to you in a CORTON gray leather carry case.
Case is still in very good overall condition, both inside and out. Inside of case is clean, showing some small signs of age and use wear. This is the same for the outside. All three metal latches still work, showing only some slight signs of surface wear.
We DO NOT have the key to these latches. Carry handle is still intact, but it is wrapped in surgical tape. Outside of case shows some minor signs of dirt / age wear and has had a round sticker that was stuck to the front. This great instrument and all its extras would make a fantastic addition to any musicians collection.
