I’m no expert on Meyer, but this is a medium chamber, 8 tip opening alto piece with obvious signs of age.

The Theo Wanne website has a bunch of info on the history and variations on Meyer pieces

What did you want to know specifically? Tone? Resale value? Other brand equivalents?

Its a modern meyer that has been left in bright light over time. It has been refaced as evidenced by the missing diamond shape on the table as well as the sanding marks. It may play fine but it doesnt look like the greatest work...but Ive seen a lot worse. So basically worth something well south of a hundred bucks in value unless it is signed by someone who is a good refacer.

Wow, to an unwashed amateur like myself, that’s a pretty impressive discoloration job. First glance would have made me most hopeful. But how does it play? Given that it’s a Meyer, it might at least be a keeper. (Or not.). But you did good getting feedback here from some folks who know their stuff.
