So you know how to repair saxophones yourself ? If so, and you want a repair project, perhaps buy it. However, given what I see there the horn (as mentioned by others) has almost zero market value and you would have a hard time selling it.Actually, it would cost me usd 70 for new pads and resonators, maybe say an extra usd 50 for pearls, cork, felts etcetera if needed.
My time is my own, and I personally consider it am investment in my quality of life if I use it in a worthwhile way doing something that I enjoy doing, rather than sitting watching TV.
I don't need an alto to learn on... learnt 20 years ago on a Tenor (selmer series 3). I do have a dolnet m70 alto that I use occasionaly, but it is the tenor that I love. I recently sold my YTS 62 (late mark 1, not purple logo) .. actually to a member of this forum, because I was not using it as I suck at music, no sense of rhythm and tone deaf... despite that, I really enjoy playing for myself.
I currently have a 1981 Weltklang model 241 which I repadded (thanks musicmedic), and set up to my own satisfaction... a pro sax player might find it not regulated to their satisfaction, but hey, its not for sale, and it feels good to me. I am also busy doing up a Dolnet series 2, again for myself.
This alto interested me because i have no idea what it is.... I doubt if I would buy it, unless someone tells me its a rare hidden jewel
Actually, haha...VERY good...but that logic is somewhat flawed:Thanks for the answers.

Actually, no-one has identified the horn yet, so no-one can say what its market value is!
