I'm not very familiar with Martin saxophones. I would like to know a bit about the Martin Indiana model. I've heard that it's an intermediate-ish horn and the key work is compareable to the Martin Committee but has a thinner tone that the professional line Martins.
With all of the previously stated considered in mind, I'm looking for a horn to take with me on a road trip in the summer. I think it'll be too risky to take my Mark VII with me, as I'm afraid something will happen to it. I want to take some kind of horn with me on vacation because I'm anticipating on making a spot for the State Jazz competition and I don't want to be left without a horn for more than a day. (I'll be spending about 2 weeks out of state) Would the Martin Indiana be a good road trip horn? I've found one on eBay for a cheap price and it's in great condition.
