Hi, I am looking at a Martin Imperial Elkhart Indiana USA. Serial number # 300XXX. Any opinions on approx age and reputation of these horns?

Thanks

I have one for sale and it would be below a pro horn but better than a student model. Mine has the nice Martin sound but the keywork is not as fancy.

Martin Imperial 300xxx

Martin Imperial serial 303xxxI am selling one on Craigs List in Boston, I have included some pictures there as well. The sax sounds great , with rolled tone holes. Very similar to the Martin Commitee.

I was just looking at a Martin Imperial alto serial#300xxx myself. It says it has been completely refurbished already and had all new pads, corks, springs, etc. The starting bid is $300 .... is that reasonable, or too much?

I just sold one 315,xxx for $350 with good pads and lacquer. Last of the real Elkhart Martins made in 1970.

Hi, my 313XXX Imperial has the classic beveled tone holes. Nice horn!
