Questions and Answers

Vintage Martin Saxophone Info?
I have an old Martin Saxophone. Near the bell the saxophone says "The Martin Elkhart, Ind" The serial number says 20247. According to this http://www.saxquest.com/museumSerials.asp The saxophone is from 1921-1922. I don't know if it is a Handcraft, or anything. I'm including a few pictures of it. Can you please tell me the type(Handcraft, typewriter, committee), and if you can tell me the approximate value of it. It came in a Conn case It doesn't have the mouthpiece but it does have the ligature and bocal. It has very minor dents...

Answer:
I play and collect Martin saxophones. Yes, that is a Martin Handcraft from 1921 in a bare brass finish. The best serial number chart is at: http://themartinstory.net/version7/whatyou-how-old.php Looks like a nice old horn. With some love, it could be restored. Value is probably about $200-350 in present condition, as described.
1930 Martin Alto Saxophone Worth?
Its on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/1930-SILVER-MARTIN-HANDCRAFT-stencil-ALTO-SAX-NO-RES_W0QQitemZ150309504192QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item150309504192&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2%7C65%3A15%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1308 Weyyman keystone state martin handcraft alto saxophone. I really like the look of vintage sax's and im not sure if this one will play well. Ive been playing alto for 10 years now, but i have no clue about sax worth because i've played with the same one the whole time. Anyone know the worth of this 1930 Martin Handcraft alto sax in good condition?
Answer:
If the horn is in stellar playing condition, I see no reason why you couldn't get $600-800 for it. I frequently visit a shop that specializes in vintage saxophone sales. They have a couple Martin stencils that are even later models than this priced over $1000. If you want to maximize the money earned, I would take it to a repair tech and have it inspected.
martin 90670 alto saxophone?
I was given a Martin Alto Saxaphone from a man that said he played jazz around the United States back in the 40's with this sax. The number on the back of it is 90670 and I am not sure how old it really is. The man that gave it to me was 96 years old and said he had the sax for many years. I am thinking it is at least 70 years old and am looking to get more information about this sax and if it would be worth restoring.
Answer:
I think it would be worth replacing the pads and getting the keys in working order. I would not refinish the lacquer. Here is a link to a dealer that sells martin saxophones. http://www.usahorn.com/catView.usa?catBrand=Martin&catNUA=u I;m sure you you sent them a quick e-mail they would tell you if it's worth anything.
Vintage Saxophone Information?
I have a Martin Elkhart saxophone with the serial number 20247. It looks very old. Does anyone know how old it is and how much i could sell it for? If so give me as much information as possible. On the saxophone it says "The Martin Elkhart,ind" It has a shield shape going around the lettering and a leaf going out the top of it and the bottom. The saxophone has a few VERY minor dents and the paddings probably need to be replaced
Answer:
The Martin Band Instrument Company was first founded by John Henry Martin in Chicago in 1865. He learned about C.G. Conn's new horn factory in Elkhart, Indiana in 1876 after he lost his business in the fire of 1871. He and his sons went to work for Conn. After his death in 1910, his sons Henry Charles Martin, Robert J. Martin, Charles E. Martin and Frederick Martin got the company restarted in Elkhart. The company consolidated with another to create the Richards Music Corporation in 1961. Officialy the company was gone in 1971, though another company used the name for their trumpets and trombones until 2007. I have included websites on prices, so you can compare. http://saxophones.usaveauction.net/buy/Saxophone/Martin-Saxophones http://www.usedsaxophone.net/UsedSaxophone/VintageSaxophone http://instruments.shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=Martin+Elkhart&_sacat=16232&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313&_odkw=&_osacat=16232 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Band_Instrument_Company
