(*bias note: I play on an SML alto)

A lovely SML Gold Medal (GM) with the engraving in the bell. Condition is overall good at 80% original lacquer showing mild wear and most on the bell. I see two main bumps/repairs to mention: the neck tenon has been resoldered nicely and the rear bow bottom has a hard dent. These have a softer lacquer and 2-3 key cups show some over heating. Don't forget all the SML features like screw adjustments and "Articulated G# on/off lever" too.

PADS: newer, white roo pads with domed metal resos with rivet.

CASE: Original hard case, tri-pack(clarinet insert no longer present). Zipper in good working order. It reminds me of the other French cases (Buffet, Selmer).

***Bias note: I play on an SML Rev D alto ...... I MIGHT WANT TO STASH THIS ONE FOR MYSELF, but that means that I would have to sell my personal Rev D...
