condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: martin tenor saxophone
model name / number: committee 3

This sax is from 1971 the last year Martin made the committee 3. Included is a working pickup. It is the norm rather than the exception when these are overhauled to run 1100 dollars. I sold my shop and no longer had a lathe to make bushings so the high f key is from another Martin. I am letting you know this so when you think you can beat this price on ebay and repad it yourself or have your guy do it, it just ain't so. These have a huge sound and the soldered toneholes allow the chimneys to be higher and therefore the posts to stick further out of the horn. They get banged around and then the pivot screws start wearing away the keys and posts are easily knocked off. Fortunately this has no post resolders but it took extensive swedging and aligning and fitting of pivot points in addittion to padding and regulation. I am even including the working factory option pickup that works with the sax. The work is fresh and is as good as anything out of vintage shops like USA horn where this would be a 3000-3100 dollar horn. Thanks for looking PS if you can't afford this I have an overhauled relaq for 1400 which also plays great. I've included a few pics of me in The Air Force Band and as a civilian musician. I owned a shop in town but had to retire due to disability more than a decade ago. This is freshly overhauled but had been part of my inventory as I used to deal in vintage winds as well.
