This is a wonderful silver plated "The Martin" bari sax. The serial number is 204370 which dates to the mid 1950's.
The instrument is is exceptional condition. The original silver plate is nearly 100% intact with very little wear. The physical condition of the sax is impressive. There are no dents or past repairs.
This bari gets an incredible sound. It has a free blowing quality that makes it easy to play and very expressive. However, you can still push it to triple forte without the sax giving out. It would make a great R&B or jazz instrument. Intonation is very solid.
The sax has a completely new professional pad job using Prestini pads with Sterling silver Reso Tech resonators. The sax is set up with a great feel that has medium spring tension.
