elkhart sax

I have an alto sax. On the bell it says, made in elkhart, in. It has "Rocket" engraved on it. The serial # is 23518. Does anyone know anything about it. It needs some new pads and springs. I want to know if it is worth the money. Any help anyone could provide, is greatfully appreciated.

    Hi N Lady, Send me some pics and I'll be happy to take a look. i've never heard of a Rocket before, and my guess is that it could be made by Martin. Most likely it's a Conn, Buescher or Martin stencil, and I am less familiar with Martin. I'd like to see it. Thanks, Jim
