This is an original lacquer F.E.Olds alto. It has a resonant, vibrant sound and a solid center, slightly more focused.
Lacquer is in excellent condition with normal wear throughout. Most of the lacquer wear is visible around some of the tone holes. There are no major dents, except for a tiny ding here and there, and no soldering. This sax was just repadded here at PM Woodwind with standard leather pads and metal resonators. Sax has original neck. This sax was made by Martin and is basically a Martin Imperial.
This is a great blowing F.E. Olds Studio alto in fantastic condition. Truly a great buy for the money. Sax comes in Selmer Sax-Pack case, but another case may be available.
All used instruments purchased from PM Woodwind come with a six month warranty
