” THE KNIGHT “


THE LOVLIEST MARTIN TENOR ALL GOLD BURNISH PORTRAIT SAXOPHONE 1927 
I HAVE EVER SEEN ( YOU HAVE EVER SEEN TOO I BET ).

I USUALLY POLISH MY GOLD ITEMS BUT THIS ONE I LEFT ITS PATINA. THIS IS THE WAY IT CAME TO ME. YOU CAN POLISH IT MORE AND IT WILL SHINE EVEN MORE THAT WOULD BE UP TO YOU. IT IS ALL BURNISHED GOLD !

1 ENGRAVING SPECTACULAR
THE MARTIN SHIELD IS USED IN THE THEME AS THE 
SHIELD FOR A MEDIEVAL KNIGHT WITH HELMET ON AND ARMOR.
HE HAS TWO HATCHET TYPE WEAPONS
AND FEATHERS ( SCARF ) COMING FROM HIS HELMET

2 DOWN BELOW THERE IS A CASTLE PORTRAIT VERY DETAILED WITH MOAT , MOUNTAINS ,
WATER, BIRDS, TREES ETC ( SEE PIC )

3 THE DETAIL ON THE WHOLE ENGRAVING IS SO PERFECT I DO NOT BELIEVE IT WAS ENGRAVED BY A MARTIN ENGRAVER.

I THINK AS COMPANIES LIKE BUESCHER MARTIN ETC HIRED OUT TO ONE OF THE FAMOUS CONN STENBERG BROTHERS TO ENGRAVE SOME OF THEIR DELUXE SAXES. THIS IS THE CASE WITH THIS MARTIN TENOR. FANTASTIC ENGRAVING LINES AND TEXTURES ! STENBERG STYLE

MUST HAVE TOOK MANY TYPES OF DETAILING INSTRUMENTS TO CUT THIS MASTERPIECE !!!!!!!!!!!

4 HAS VERY NEW PADS ( SEE PICS )

5 MY TECH SERVICED IT NOT MUCH NEEDED ADJUST/LEAKS NEEDED NO PADS ETC

6 I PLAY TESTED IT WITH MY BRILHART GREAT NECK NY MPC. BIG SOUND WITH THAT SET UP. THIS IS OLDER DESIGNED KEY WORK SO YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH IT A BIT OF COURSE LIKE ALL VINTAGE HAND MADE SAXES. I FOUND WITH THIS ONE IT IS BEST TO ARCH YOUR FINGERS STRAIGHT DOWN TO GET THE BEST TONE AND FASTEST PLAYING ACTION.

7 THE FINISH IS PRETTY FANTASTIC EXCEPT IN THE TOUCH PLACES SOME WEAR.

8 I DID NOT EVEN POLISH IT ( I FELT THE PATINA WAS LOVELY AS IS OF COURSE YOU CAN POLISH IT IF YOU CHOOSE. )

9 NO DENTS OR BENT KEYS I COULD FIND

10 THERE IS A WELL DONE REPAIR ON THE B GUARD. ( SEE PIC 12 )

11 ALL ROLLERS ROLL

12 NO SMELL ON ORIGINAL CASE OR SAX

13 BODY TO BELL BRACE FINE

14 THIS COULD BE FOR A REAL COLLECTOR OR A PLAYER.
OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO

MESS WITH THE MOUTHPIECE YOU USE AND FIND THE RIGHT REED. I ACTUALLY TRIED THE ORIGINAL MARTIN MOUTHPIECE THAT COMES WITH IT AND DID NOT CARE FOR IT
EVEN WITH A PRETTY HARD REED.
BUT EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT OF COURSE. IT IS THE ORIGINAL MARTIN MOUTH PIECE.

15 BELL BOTTOM AND FIN NO DENTS

16 NECK SAME SERIAL AS SAX AND NO PULL DOWN

17 LOOK AT THE PICS AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT THIS PIECE.

18 ORIGINAL CASE IN ABOUT ” B ” GRADE CONDITION ALL SNAPS AND BUCKLE WORKS.

19 BELL IS LOVELY NO DAMAGE EVER. I FELT DOWN INTO THE BELL NO BUMPS

THIS PIECE BELONGS IN SAXOPHONE.ORG MUSEUM.
THE ENGRAVERS TOOK THE MARTIN SHIELD AND TURNED IT INTO A MEDIEVAL THEME ! COOL

I DESCRIBED

” THE KNIGHT “

TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY
