Martin has a long history of making incredibly flexible, powerful and beautiful instruments that will let you morph your sound to any musical situation. Boasting a beautiful dark honey patina on the neck, body, bow and bell accentuated by silver key work, not only is the sound robust, but the aesthetics of this saxophone will stand out in any section. Traditionally featuring a slightly larger bore than French style saxophones, there is more real estate within the sound to shape, shift, flex and contort the sound. Martin was always ahead of the game with ergonomics allowing for a more “modern” feeling instrument so let that video of Giant Steps at 400bpm fly! This is the sleeper horn you never knew you needed and will not be able to put down.
