    Not 100% sure if this is a Martin, but look at the mouthpiece!

    I played a Committee Tenor classically for years with a Steve Broadus Perfected mpc and received many compliments. Its a great dark sound you can't get out of a Selmer..

    I'm fairly sure it is. Or maybe a Goldbeck.

    Steve Broadus was one of the Martin Committee, so I'm not surprised it worked so well!
