Hmm. You seem to have found a quick way to create that vintage look.

In any case - I feel your pain. Strength, brother.

the case doesn't look too bad......seriously, commiserations.
However, maybe not all is los,t at least if nothing really is melted down,someone could start a serious project ..... otherwise I hope that you were well insured. If not, selling some parts, still usable for spares, should see you trough to a Chinese horn....not quite the same but better than nothing.

Cool! That is actually the second MK VI fire victim brought back to life I have seen described. The first is in a book I have called "Vintage Selmer Saxophones- The Collection of Ludwig (Lud) Toepfer" and one of the horns he resurrects is one that was ruined in an explosion that killed his friend! Intense, to say the least.

If I hadn't looked twice, I'd have thought the picture of the sax was while it still was on fire... that is one firy colored case.

Thank!!

I wish I had a Camera for all the Projects that I had done over the years!

I love doing work like this.

If I have to do major body/solder work on old Horns I use the Brass wheel To create a final finish.

I will also put a lite coat of Gold Lacquer, It blends in well with the rest of the horn.

If the Original Lacquer look good I use the Traditional method.
