No signs of any significant damage or repairs. Valves are in good condition with little wear.Compression is not like a brand-new Strad, but the slides still pull out with a pop, and the horn plays very well. All tuning slides are free, as are the bottom caps. Serial number 2052XX makes it 1958, right in the heyday of Committees and Imperials and the other great horns Martin was producing after the war, and before RMC took over.
These very rarely come up for sale: only three that I can find at the moment, and two of those are later, and none are silver! A sought-after horn in unusually good condition, so dont dawdle! Ashantee Music is a family-owned business serving musicians of all levels for almost twenty years.
