This is a sweet vintage Martin curved soprano saxophone in silver plate, serial number 21771. This soprano is in near mint condition and is a lot of fun to play!
The sax is as close to perfect as they come. The original silver plating is 99% intact with no wear of note. There are no dents or dings, no past damages or repairs, and no resoldered joints. There isn't even any wear on the touch points.
This horn has been fully re-padded in 2004, with flat metal resonators by Duncan Bamsey of Saxquest.
Vintage Martin sopranos are known for their warmth and character of sound. This one indeed plays with a warm rich sound. It is very responsive and plays with an open feel.
