This is a factory satin silver-plated Lyon & Healy Semi-Curved soprano. It has a deep, rich, resonant, vibrant sound and a solid center, not too spread.
The silver plating is in very good condition with normal wear throughout. Other than some minor scratches here and there and some minor pitting on a few of the keys, this is one of the finest tipped bells I have seen. It is slightly tarnished but will clean up and look beautiful. There are no dents, except for a tiny ding here and there, and very little soldering. The low Eb guard was resoldered at the T connection. Pads are original white leather pads and still work fine. They are old and will need to be replaced if the sax is played alot. Sax also has gold plating inside the bell. This sax also comes with the original case and mouthpiece.
These Lyon & Healy Semi-Curved sopranos are extremely rare. They were made by Martin and are extremely hard to find. This is one of the finest I have seen. It is in fantastic condition and is all original, including the case and mouthpiece.
This is a fantastic blowing Lyon & Healy Semi-Curved soprano in very good original condition. Truly a rare find. Sax comes in original case.
