$399.00 - A rare 1940s, stainless steel mouthpiece with original brass ligature and cap. It blows really easy and can be enjoyed by anyone who doesn't want to blow that much air. Listed at the same price as modern, new ones, this can be your investment toy.
SOLD - Terrific hard rubber material and LARGE CHAMBER makes for a big, vintage sound. I love these on alto and tenor. This one was bought and customized with reface for a bass sax player.
$2,899.00 - A "warhorse" player with battle wounds. The Martin Baritones are loved for tone - words people use to describe: power, depth, core, punch, bite, bark. They have a special tone.
$3,999/3,150.00 - New Arrival - Just in! Golden lacquer finish with silver neck! #470k dates it to about 1971. It is a later serial number, but that only helps save you money in this case. Don't let that scare you away from a baritone that you don't see come for sale often!
$3,499/2,199.00 - New Arrival - Just in! In a quality, original lacquer finish Martin bari with common chair dings and dents to work back out. There is a larger, flat dent on the back tube that we can discuss working on. This is will be a ringer!
SOLD - The Big Bs are famous for a BIG warm sound with rich low notes--resonant low end the fills the room, probably due to some help from the big bell flare. Mid-range gets a little thin but the low notes make up for it. These fit very well in jazz or concert bands. Intonation is pretty good all-round. Upgraded case.
$5,999.00 - For the Gerry Mulligan lovers! ... Ser#271k, Original finish at 90%--color is great! LADY FACE/Naked Lady pentagram engraved on the bell. It needs a rebuild. She arrived with lots of dents and dings. I'll work those out. The neck ring was replaced with a 1940s king zephyr three-ring neckstrap ring (this is actually a good thing for you players). The only other 'bad' worth mentioning, is the Opt F# guard has been lost. I have found a 12M replacement part!! (in bare brass). There are some dents on the back side that I want to improve and the body tube will straighten during the rebuild; I have no worry there. Case: currently has the Conn-wrapped original. Let's talk about upgrading this...$300?
Let's get it rebuilt with a WWS Rebuild ($1200+) and let's talk about the special rebuild details you want on this one. larger brass resos?!? This sax will be a great player with a huge tone!; don't forget the insane market-desire on this model for the Collector in you.
$269.00 - A great large chamber mouthpiece made of hard rubber mouthpiece from the golden era. The original tip was refaced by Bob. Notice the lower walls cutout for comfort - cool! Other notes: There is a "France" marking on the side. And Bob expertly filled in a tooth groove. There is a small nick in the shank but its of no concern since the metal band is a great part of this era - it protects!
Baffle: it is more scooped out (lower) than a Conn Eagle. Very low baffle.
