Did you know that Matterhorn Music offers consignment sales? Over the years we’ve had some very unusual, pro model instruments come through our doors, and find new, very happy owners. In the past we’ve sold some lovely Mark VI altos and tenors, as well as clarinets, flutes, trumpets, French horns, trombones, etc, etc…. The list of what we’ve sold is really quite long.
This Martin Committee III baritone sax is perhaps one of the more unusual saxophones that we have sold over the years. It was sold in 2014 to a very happy owner who now uses it regularly in everything from big band to pit orchestra work. What made it so unusual was: 1. Its condition. Most baris are beat up, but this one had been babied its entire life by one owner; and 2. Its finish. It had been a custom order from the Martin factory back in 1958.
Other services in addition to consignment
No, this baritone sax did not look like this when it came into the shop on consignment. The new owner had David do a complete overhaul on it after it was bought. When you come in to see one of our consignment horns, talk to David about the services he offers that will bring the instrument into factory, or better than factory-new condition once again.
