Hiya, I'm looking to buy a old alto, it's a $1200..
The details..

-silverplate, gold wash bell.
-"Martin handcraft" engraved on bell amidst floral stuff
-and S/N 87XXX, marked "LOW PITCH", "MARTIN"
-one of those old, musty, purple velvet-lined cases.

and too much expensive?
Anybody know anything?
thank.

Have a look for the "price-estimates" on my site:

Also Steve Goodson's www.saxgourmet.com features a price list (of mint condition saxes)
