Soybean. I had no recollection of ever seeing a finish offered in Nickel. So I had a look here in the 1932 Holton catalog.Welcome here Willem. Your baritone is very nice. Thanks the finish appears to be nickel.
It almost looks like gold plate, but it's lacq. Is it a relacq ? Hard to tell. As a new member you cannot technically sell it here, which means you could use Craigslist, consign it with some local music ship, or if you are up for packing and shipping, try eBay.Hi all -
I've owned a Holton Bari Sax for nearly 20 years...SN is 2766X, so I've really not owned it for much of its life. It's been really fun to play but I have recently gotten something new. I'm trying to find more information around how old this sax is, what is its value, how much could I sell it for, etc. And I'd love to find a buyer! Any thoughts?
Hi Jaye - Thanks for the tips! the horn has definitely been relacquored, but still that was probably decades ago. i had also thought it was a mid 20's horn, which is just so crazy because that was so long ago!It almost looks like gold plate, but it's lacq.

If it plays up and down well and there is no horrific damage anywhere which isn't shown in pics, probably worth around $900 incl. case. The side neck pip is taking off around $200 from its value...
Hello Holton Players,Any Holton players here?

I am a young sax player from Venezia - Italy.
I own a Holton Revelation series 19535 and I love it.

Can anyone tell me from the serial number in which year it has been produced?
