Re: What Horn is he playing in this pic? Also, what song?

I’m guessing a Martin handcraft. I don’t know the artist but I looked up that exact same first picture. It’s hard to see but the pinky table looks Martin. The split bell looks about right for handcraft. The RH high E is definitely not Conn. Where the lira post is mounted and the way the neck PIP is Hinged looks Martin. Key cups above the high F or LH index finger do not say Martin.

The neck octave key and position of the lyre is exact to my Dick Stabile alto (Martin stencil which is pretty much I believe based on the Handcraft). Don't know if it's the same horn in the smaller pic(s). If it is, then I'd say Martin.

thanks, that makes sense; and if I'd had any brains I would have realized I have one of those.
