The Martin Alto (Committee III) Saxophone (2)

  • Possible trade for Yamaha YAS-62 (purple logo) or Yamaha YAS-61!

For sale The Martin Alto (Committee III) saxophone, serial no. 187xxx (1954). This saxophone is fully restored a few years ago at Roberto Buttus (Italy) workshop, original lacquer (I think) still here at about 60% and it plays smoothly from top to bottom and gig ready. It has Reso-Tech resonators, original case, end plug and matching serial on body and neck, no mouthpiece. There are a few resolders, two on low b, b flat key guard post and one on low c# post (very common on those Martins) and thumb hook base. There is also small dent on bow guard but I think the bow tube is not affected (pics). It has full, round and medium dark sound and it is loud horn due to Reso-Tech resonators.
I prefer to sell it inside EU (no customs for EU countries), but would consider worldwide shipping also. The horn is available for local pickup/cash in Zagreb (HR). Payment by bank transfer (inside EU) or PayPal (buyer pays fees). Ask for the price. Pictures

Tram 11 @ Tvornica Kulture

Od četvrtka 12. do subote 14. travnja 2018. u Tvornici kulture sviram s legendarnim hrvatskim hip-hop/rap duom Tram 11 (Target, General Woo) kao član pratećeg banda Funksteri (Zdenko Ivanušić – tenor saksofon; Mihael Kvorka – klavijature; Ivan Knez – el. bass; Robert Domitrović – bubnjevi). Uz Tram 11 i Funkstere na koncertu gostuju DJ Noki Nole (Domagoj Neumann), Pendrek i brojni drugi gosti. 

Nakon spektakla u Domu sportova pred 9.000 ljudi i jednog od najbrže rasprodanih koncerata nekog hrvatskog izvođača uopće, Tram 11 odlučili su se na 3 intimnija klupska koncerta u zagrebačkoj Tvornici kulture. Old school rap, u kapacitetu od samo 1,300 po danu, svakako je prava poslastica za one koji band žele doživjeti nakon svih ovih godina i u klupskom okruženju.

Tram 11 @ Tvornica KultureDnevne ulaznice 90 kn, ukoliko ih ostane na dan koncerta 100 kn. Prodajna mjesta; Dirty old shop, Rockmark, Aquarius, prodajna mjesta Eventima i online na Eventim.hr
