FOR SALE: Martin Master "Typewriter" Gold Lacquer Alto Saxophone- Made in 1929, it has been a favorite of jazzers for years.  Right a way, you will notice that this alto is heavier than most, which is typical of Martin horns.  The heavier brass gives this alto the characteristic sensual sound and projection that all Martins have. Originally called "The Master" it earned the name "Typewriter" because every key terminates in a round pearl instead of the elongated keys that you find on the side and palm keys of others. This horn was obviously cherished.  The gold lacquer finish is at 95+%.  This is the easiest blowing alto I have ever played handling the low Bb to the high F with minimum air.  The altissimo register speaks equally as well.  This horn comes with a nice, soft, gig  bag and a Couf mouthpiece. Serial Number-96655. $1200.00
