1935 Martin Handcraft Imperial Alto Saxophone 106xxx low pitch. This is a good old horn made by Martin for a very limited run in the 1930s it is a 1934 or 1935 Martin Handcraft Imperial Alto Saxophone. Martin later used the name on a student model (1970s) but this is the vintage Imperial and not the student model. Overall, the condition of the saxophone is very good.
The body is in very good shape. It has a few minor dings, and several scratches.
The lacquer has some pitting, but mostly present (see pics). This just came out of a clean estate here in the Detroit suburbs, I don't think it has been played in 50, 60 maybe even 70 years. It looks like it was a professional horn player in a Detroit band/orchestra (see the old business card from the previous owner that was in the case)... I do not play the sax and only pick them up when the opportunity presents itself. I know what vintage to look for and this looks like a nice horn.
I did not attempt to clean it. The case is old and in OK shape-- has two handles.... Some leather or faux leather trim, closes tight, locks pop open easily, handles are good a really cool vintage case that looks original to the horn.
