Armstrong 3000 Alto Sax
- Year: 1980s?
- Make: Armstrong
- Model: 3000
- Status: SOLD
- Finish: Original
- Serial Number: #7,2xx
Another starter sax with decent ergos, good metal, and a lineage of Keilwerth parts. This sax looks like the old Couf parts (my 1970s pro sax.) Gold lacquer, nickel keys. I expect it to have a great sound that would rival and new sax due to the Keilwerth link (and my bias towards that sound).
It doesn't have the high F# key, but that's not needed to start. I repurchased this sax from a previous client (note that it worth re-owning). They did play it and lost a few pearls and screws and we will get those all repaired.
CASE: - Yes. Nice original hard case. I am treating the case from some storage odor from not being used for a few years, and I expect it to clean up.
Cosmetic Rating: 6.0 -- complete but with wear and tear marks.
***PC Work (playing condition) pending - misc screws and pad adjustments.
