' Martin Handcraft ' C Melody Sax - 1931
Vintage bronze lacquer, late model circa 1931, s/no 104xxx - literally the last of the C-Melody line, lovely !! I don't have a good enough camera to capture the real dark 'honey bronze' vintage lacquer colour - it's gorgeous.
Modern action, gone are the quirky vintage forked Eb and G# trill keys. High palm keys all sensibly long - no more 'button' palm keys. Add to that the essential auxiliary Front-F mechanism, and you have a C-Melody and this is a delight to play. Intonation is extremely good - a solid powerful horn with well preserved Martin case and accessories. ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR SALE - it's my horn !!
And, to compete in the LOUD modern world...
