Martin Medalist saxophones
Made 1950 - 1970 (Ser# 81K - 100K and 200K - 320k - a lot missing here) Classification: Intermediate
This is an intermediate horn.
People tell me how inpressive the sound is of this horn. Much brighter then the other Martins. This leads me to believe that the Medalist was intended to be competition for the french horns of it's days (Selmer, SML, Buffet).
