I'm waiting to get Martin "New Era" stencil tenor from Ebay. It will need to be padded and looked over. I've tried a couple to Martins and I was real impressed with sound and key layout (ergonomics). I currently have Selmer Mark VI, Conn student with rolled tones holes, Conn 10M (1936 vintage awaiting finish of overhaul) and Keilworth stencil all tenors.
Any info on the Martin New Era? What can I expect for sound and fingering for this stencil horn (1940)? Is it worth doing more than just a repad?
Thanks for your help.
