I was given an Elkhart Alto sax recently. The sax is in need of a couple hundred dollars of repair to make it usable. Question is how can I tell if it will be worth the cost.
The serial number on the back under the thumb hook is 102372 under the serial number is 21A.
Looking on the serial number list, the number implies a horn from the mid 20's. I don't think that is right but what other things can I look at?
