From the Martin Band Instrument Catalogue:
"Here's the saxophone with a tone that carries... cuts through even with the brasses wide open! It's got the new 'sound' that belongs to modern music...a tone with third dimension.This extraordinary tone quality results from Martin's special bore and the uniformly tempered alloy brass that is used throughout the instrument...mouthpipe, body, bow and bell. There are no hard or soft spots, no thick or thin sections to dull tones and make the registers uneven. Scale is uniform from top to bottom in quality, volume and response. For solo or ensemble, Martin is regarded as the nation's outstanding alto saxophone of today."
We couldn't say it any better ourselves. This Martin is an incredible player and has the sound that will make you a cut above the rest. It may even help you sing 76 Trombones better out of the shower.
