Martin "The Official Music Man model" saxophones
Made 1962 - 1964 (Ser# 212k - 218k) Classification: Professional
This is a limited edition horn named after the movie with the same name
The Music Man which it was used in.
It is basically a The Martin with a speciall engraving on the ring on the bottom of the bell. Also the keyguard is a bit different.
You might say this is the predecessor of the Magna.
There are people who claim they're the best honkers with the best intonation.
I have seen examples of a model with BOTH the RMC shield and "The Music Man" engraving.
There were also other Reynolds horns produced under the aegis of "The Official Music Man".
