    Default Plays pretty well for having been in the closet for decades...

    My Dad bought his SML alto (serial number 8713) in New York in the early 1950s, and played it until he gave it to me when I was about 10. I played it through college and a little beyond before my life took a different creative direction. Since then, the horn has sat in my closet in Los Angeles. Now, my own son is interested in learning to play, so I pulled out the horn and it isn't bad. Yeah, for sure it needs work, and that's my question: where should I take it to be evaluated and spruced up in Los Angeles?

    Here are some pictures, and thanks.

    I missed this post earlier, but I would take the horn to Ross at Baxter Northup music. He has worked on my SML alto (similar to yours) and did a great job. He's only there on Mondays so call before you go in.
