A rare mid 1930's'Revelation' model 201 vintage Eb alto saxophone made by Holton of USA. These are wonderful, hand-made instruments - worthy competitors to Martin, Conn or Buescher - Holton was just not as well known for their saxes as their brass-winds.
They have developed a growing following due to their quality and low price in comparison to better known vintage saxes. It has a number of attractive features for an instrument of this vintage: tune-able neck, bell keys on the same side, high F key and a G# trill, no forked Eb! It is silver-plated brass, and is in great condition for its age! Its been disassembled, cleaned, swedged and countersunk (to tighten the mechanism) posts aligned, tone holes leveled, rods trued, all new tan leather pads (with brown plastic resos) and key corks installed, reassembled and adjusted for optimal play-ability.
Warm, spread'vintage American' tone, good intonation, comfortable key work: I'm very pleased with the condition and play-ability of this saxophone! Comes with original case in good condition. Please note that auctions may end at any time, as these instruments are often also offered on my site -' The Vintage Clarinet Doctor. Where more pics and information are available.
Please check out the Vintage Clarinet Doctor on Facebook! I believe that vintage clarinets represent one of the most under-priced and underutilized resources on the market. Nickel and grenadilla wood are increasingly finite resources and the craftsmanship on some of these old horns makes them a real pleasure to own. Why not try a vintage clarinet from the Vintage Clarinet Doctor see the difference for yourself? And ask that you pay within 4 days or the item will be relisted.
