I bought a The Martin Alto off of ebay. I am kinda looking for a horn that I can silverplate. Anyhow I bought this horn and was curious the finish is brushed. Kinda like a Ref 54. In the auction the seller stated that some people thought it looked spray painted. Yet I have really inspected it, The writing is crisp and the brush look is consistant through the whole horn including into ant throught the inside of the bell! Any ideas? Thanks.
