Martin “The Music Man” Committee Tenor Saxophone

Fairly standard overhaul done on this beauty.  I used flat metal resonators.  These like thin pads- you’ll be using minimal adhesive as well to get them as thin as the horn wants (assuming key geometry hasn’t been bent all around in the past to accommodate thicker pads).

Cool horn.  I like the woody tone of “The Martin” saxophones.
