Re: Frank Holton L.P. Tenor
I have a Holton L.P soprano circa 1911. These were made by Frank Holton as the bell says. He was made most famous with his brass instruments of the time although he did make every band instrument of the time. Some people belive the Holton sax is shotty and of low caliber because Holton did not specialize in the sax. I have found however, that the key work is phenominal, tone melow and soft, and price to be low. Not many Holtons exist as Holton was baught by Leblanc which carried the Holton brand sax into the 70's i believe. I have never seen a Holton tenor, but would be very interested in finding one for myself.
