Recently bought a rather old Revere tenor (ser# 5809)- does anyone know the history of this company? Seems to be nicely built. Can't play it yet because the pads are gone or fossilized. Also - I'm wondering about the neck. It seems to be "wrinkled" or "hammered" all over. Is this from a major repair job, or could this possibly be the way it was made? Tough to imagine it was that badly damaged - the rest of the sax was obviously taken care of nicely. Another interesting thing is the microtuner nut for accurately pushing out the mouthpiece. How common was that? Thanks for any enlightenment!
