Here's a great Committee III Alto with some older, used pads that will be good for a while. It looks like 1990s age with plastic resos. There are some small dings and pings that I can work with and the bell lip edge is the worst of the damage to mention. Matching Serial # on the neck.
These have a nice core tone with some meat - American Jazz, and Art Pepper tone. They are great with many mouthpieces and have rather nice intonation and ergos under your fingers.
FINISH: relacquer - possibly a factory relacquering because it is has a nice coloration. It is good enough to trick many people.
CASE: Original Martin wood case.
REBUILD: optional at a discount - but we'd have to discuss some price increase.
