I have a 1932 MARTIN HANDCRAFT TROUBADOUR LOW PITCH TENOR SAXOPHONE.
i have several martins tenor,and alto from 1945-1960ish....
hopefully get a baritone soon...
I have a THE MARTIN COMMITTEE III from 1963 and I play it with a Theo Wanne Brahma 7* Resin-MPC. It sounds great !!!
It was love at the first sight and this setup fits perfectly to me.
Cheers from Berlin, Germany
My Martins :-
Soprano - 1926 Handcraft
Alto -1937 Com (Searchlight engraving).
Tenor - 1926 Handcraft
Baritone - 1933 Handcraft
I have a 1926 Martin Handcraft Original alto, a 1950s Martin Indiana alto, and my main axe, a 1956 The Martin Alto in pristine condition. I sold a Conn 26M and retired my beloved Mark VI when my The Martin arrived, neither could touch the depth and complexity of the "Martin" sound. I'm saving my pennies until I can get her Tenor counterpart.
Matched pair of 1937 Martin Committee 1 alto/tenor. Dark, wonderful horns with the best low register ever, especially the smoothness of the alto down low.
As I have said elsewhere, purr like a kitten or wail like a banshee...
1933 HC Imperial Alto
1962 Martin Magna Low A Baritone
Both are fantastic players !!!
I have a 1927 Gold Plate Martin Handcraft III, it is in mint condition, had it completely overhauled with Roo Pads, work perfected by Star Music Sax Tech there, Augie In Myrtle Beach, SC. ( I may have his name wrong, but he is terrific) I finally got the right Combo, A Selmer Soloist & New Rico 2S reeds. Wow, best horn ever, beats my Selmer Super Balance & many others. Bruce Brennan
Sorry, forgot to mention it is an ALTO.. Bruce Brennan
