WHAT THE MARTIN STORY BEST INFO ON WEB SAID ABOUT IT:
>Martin ” The Official Music  Man model ” saxophones Made 1962 – 1964 (Ser# 212999k – 218k) Classification: Professional

This is a limited edition horn named after the movie with the same name  which it was used in.
It is basically a The Martin with a speciall engraving on the ring on the bottom of the bell. Also the keyguard is a bit different.

You might say this is the predecessor of the Magna.

There are people who claim they’re the best honkers with the best intonation.

I have seen examples of a model with BOTH the RMC shield and “The Music Man” engraving. <

 

THIS ONE MAY HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE FIRST MADE. THEY STARTED MAKING THEM AT ACCORDING TO THE MARTIN STORY SERIAL NUMBER 1962 213999
THIS ONE I HAVE IS SERIAL 212899 SO IT IS ACTUALLY A 1961 VERY LATE ! MADE 1100 NUMBERS BEFORE THE ACTUAL 1962 SERIAL START DATE.
DO THE MATH 1962 START DATE ON CHART SERIAL  NUMBER 213999 MINUS MY SERIAL 212899=1100 !!!!!
MARTIN WITHIN THOSE 1100 SERIAL NUMBERS WHERE MAKING OTHER INSTRUMENTS.
SO HOW MANY OFFICIAL MUSIC MAN MODELS WERE ACTUALLY PRODUCED WITH IN 1100 NUMBERS PROCEEDING THE ACTUAL START DATE OF 1962 ?? NOT MANY I ASSUME. THIS ONE COULD HAVE BEEN IN THE MOVIE WHO KNOWS FOR SURE BUT SOMETHING TO PONDER.

1 ORIGINAL LAC ( SOME WEAR ON BACK MOSTLY SEE PIC 12 )
2 ENGRAVING SWEET
3 HAS THE RMC SHIELD TOO
4 MY TECH SERVICED THE SAX. HE THINKS THE PADS WERE REPLACED AT ONE TIME. BUT HE RE-SEATED PADS , REPLACED 3 PADS, CHECKED FOR LEAKS AND ADJUSTED , NEW NECK CORK , ETC. I CAN SEND A PIC OF WORK SLIP IF YOU REQUEST IT. HE FIXED BENT KEYS AND REPLACED THE NECK TIGHTENING SCREW
BECAUSE IT WAS MISSING.
5 I PLAY TESTED IT FIRST WITH MY BRIHART TONALIN 2 1/2 RICO ROYAL REED PLAYED VERY WELL…BUT THEN  I TRIED THE ORIGINAL MARTIN MOUTHPIECE AND IT PLAYED EVEN BETTER.
THAT COMES WITH THE SAX IN FINE SHAPE SEE PICS
6 I DID NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL CASE BUT PICKED OUT A VERY NICE DELUXE CONN CASE THAT IS GREEN INSIDE THAT AT ONE TIME HOUSED A GOLD PLATED CONN SAX.
7 ACTION FELT GREAT AND TIGHT
8 SPECIAL LOW KEY GUARD ONLY MADE ON THESE ON THESE ( SEE PIC )
9 ALL ROLLERS ROLL
