***One of THE BEST 6M's I have ever played.*** Tone: Dark, booming, resonant...
Don't let the tarnish fool you. This sax is in excellent condition and is from the era that demands great respect, and the boost in value with the silver finish. This is one of the earliest 6Ms (early 1930s!) with the #262k dating it to 1934. This was before the "stamp VIII" models so you'll see the older "Chu" neck tuner, and the swivel thumb hook. There is not much to report; the sax is complete in the quality that you can inspect. The only negative is the neck tenon screw was replaced, and the tarnish.
PADS: older, used 1/2 way. They will last a while with regular tuneups. Plastic resonators.
CASE: used protec wrap case in "ok-good" condition.
If you'd like to discuss a "anti-tarnish polishing service" option, let me know.
1) a cleaning to the external areas ($50)
2) a full disassembly, oil & clean all rods, and polish the body and keys (~$260 TBD)
