1926 Gold Plated Martin Handcraft. Another horn you just don't see everyday, and one that is wholly underrated I might add. This horn has focus that you can actually experience when playing. One person that played it said, "This thing handles like a race car." Gary Smulyan saw this horn and he said, "Look at this horn! Who wouldn't buy this?" It plays with exceeding ease in the low end and produces clean, bright, well-intonated high tones. The key work feels very modern for a horn from the 20's, with the exception of the left hand table Bb spatula, and the white Grey Joey pads make the action surprisingly quiet. And the engraving is amazing; who doesn't want a lake scene including a lighthouse and a sailboat on their horn?
