Some horns get a lot of love. Years of people fawning over them, angling to have the "it" horn on the moment. Then there are other horns. Horns that carved out the history of music, sliver by sliver. The horns that defined a generation, crafted by hand, and rich with character, subtly and distinction. This Martin 'The Martin', is like excellent wine. Aged to perfection and ready to be enjoyed.
This is truly a closet queen of a horn. The engraving is incredibly fine and the lacquer looks as if it has spent less time in the sun than the moon. Featuring a fresh overhaul, this Alto plays like butter; seamlessly transitioning between registers. As an older horn, it is rich in character, no matter the volume, musical setting or set up. If you want a horn that needs love, and all horns do, then you shouldn't miss out on this horn. No, really. Don't miss this horn.
