Freqently asked questions

Are all shown saxophones your own?

Sadly no.
One day, when I win the lottery or a kind miljonair comes by I hope to be able to buy one of each kind of every model, but thusfar my only Martin saxophone is a The Martin Tenor.

How much is my saxophone worth?

I'm sorry, but I can not answer this question for you.

I did keep track of prices for a while, but stopped doing this because of lack of time.

I've got a stencil, can you tell me the model which it's based on?

Short answer. No, I cann't. I don't keep track of stencil horns.
Long answer. The Martin history is difficult enough without focussing on stencils.
I need trustable input to be sure about which model it is based on. Well let's say that in the past I got a lot of emails from people claiming to have bought a Martin stencil which wasn't. That's why I stopped.

But with a little effort you can find out yourself. Take a look at all different models which they are based on most of the time.
That would be: Handcraft, Indiana (the first Indianas are in fact Handcraft stencils) or modern Imperial..
Take the time to compare the pictures in the gallery with you saxophone. They don't need to be perfectly the same.

In fact that is what I would have to do when asked this question!

How can I tell the difference between a C-melody and a tenor?

Take the neck or neckplug off your horn. Put it the body straight up on a table and measure the length from the table to the top of your horn. A c-melody will be about 24 inches (61 cm) a tenor will be about 29.5 inches (75 cm)
Other types:
- C-melody soprano, 22 inches (56 cm)
- Straight soprano, 25.5 inches (65 cm)
- Alto, 22 inches (56 cm)
