SOLD - These are one of the best Hard Rubber Mouthpieces ever made. These have a a Nice big sound, medium tone, not too dark, not too bright, Sarge had THREE in his collection for a while-- It's "best of" material! serial number 116,669; WITH ORIGINAL BOX! Bob Carpenter reface 0.102". These have a a Nice big sound, medium tone; not too dark, not too bright. Sarge had THREE in his collection for a while if that tells you anything. It's "best of" material! These often out-play vintage rubber Otto Links but are more affordable. Considering Bob's beautiful reface, the price is going to be 549.00. It will probably sell quickly, as I have seen them sell at ebay for 599.00.

Martin 1963 ‘”Official Music Man Model”‘ Tenor, #218k (Archived)

SOLD - Sometimes I get the sentimental stories to enjoy: previously sold and shipped around the world, this sax was repurchased by WWS (Consider that I should stash this in Chadd's Collection). I'll list it for sale at this time even though my other Martin is also for sale (at the time of this posting).
Serial #218k with Black Roos, HUGE silver Resotech resos! This was one of Sarge's Collection saxes. He first got it in original condition and gave it his favorite rebuild setup. He recorded a few tracks on it. We sold it to Switzerland and I had the opportunity arise to buy it back. I took it! It was loved, and played while away. I feel the need to mention a few dings that just happen. The Eb guard was burnished out by me, as well as a little burnishing on a few ding in the bell and bow. The bow guard (front bottom) took a small hit too. Your eyes don't notice these things as you are certainly more drawn to the engraving that is full and crisp.
CASE: Comes with original, orange Martin case in great shape also.
