Up for sale is a Beautiful The Martin Committee III Alto Saxophone serial #206435 , this places the build year around 1959. This professional saxophone has a beautiful lush Martin tone – with a sharper edge to it than the earlier Committee`s. I have used it personally for a live gig recently in combination w a metal Berg L MP and it handled smooth. I usually play a Selmer Super Action II and this Martin horn is of the same pro level in my opinion. Sax looks clean and pads look like theyve recently been re-padded. Serial on the neck matches the serial of the body. Original lacquer looks like its 80-85 % intact(see pics)mostly because of tarnish on the bell. The engraving is still very visible, but the engraving part on the bell is also the place where lacquer has faded (see pic). There is a small but visible dent where the serial # is located (see pics). The instrument shows some signs of wear due to age(rust and tarnish) (see pics). I noticed that low B and Bb are tough to play I have to press the Spatula/left pinky keys with more force than should be necessary to close the low B & Bb tone holes, so the key mechanism will need adjusting of some sort. I advice to ask me more about this if you need more specifics. G# spring was replaced but I think it could still operate smoother than it currently does. It sounds lush but I have to work a little harder on the low E, D, so it might indicate the pads need to be overlooked to make sure there are no leaks. This sax is worth much more than the asking price, The low price is based on the flaws that are mentioned above. The instrument is Vintage, not New, so please see pictures for condition of instrument (dont hesitate to ask for more pics). If you have any questions about this instrument please message me. I`m a professional saxophonist living in Brooklyn, NY and hold a Masters degree in Alto Saxophone performance from the Amsterdam Conservatory. I DO NOT claim to be a mechanic, so can only tell you what I think the instrument needs from a players perspective. I specialize in Selmer Paris, Martin and CONN models and have over 20 years professional experience as a saxophone player.

Noble Paris Bass Saxophone 1960s. I have to use a bari sax reed to test it. You have to drop your jaw to get the low notes to speak. I don’t know if this is typical, or if there is a leak in the estimate. All the notes do speak though. The pads appear to be in great condition. It’s obviously had to repad. I’m assuming, based off the information that I have found on the internet, this instrument was made in Paris in the sixties. It has a 5 digit serial number that begins with 1 5. The instrument is in great shape considering how cumbersome enlarge it is. The lacquer looks great. There have been some repairs done to the instrument that I have indicated with the pictures.

Callaham Bridge, Tele Vintage, Slant Compensated Brass Saddles
When the Telecaster (Broadcaster) was first designed and built in 1950, the bridge system was crude at best. It served the purpose of positioning the strings, but allowed for only coarse intonation adjustment. Callaham’s bridge maintains the traditional look, while using superior materials and design that deliver a wider frequency response, increased sustain, and perfect intonation. FENDER BRIDGE – SHORTCOMINGS The current production Fender bridge is made from. 050 1010 hot-rolled steel in a deep-drawn process. This bridge is used on all reissues and Custom Shop models. The steel used must be very soft – and limited in thickness – to allow it to fold and bend in the corners. The process also creates tremendous internal stress that bows the plate such that it doesn’t sit flat; consequently it’s not in full contact with the body surface, which can cause unwanted feedback in some guitars. Aesthetically, the plate shows unattractive scratches from the die, which was of no concern when it was designed since it was originally intended to be covered. Finally, the saddles cannot be adjusted for perfect intonation, and their set screws interfere with the strings by being in the strings’ paths. CALLAHAM PLATE IMPROVEMENTS Callaham’s bridge is made from. 075 cold-rolled carbon steel using a five-stage bending process, and then stress-relieved so that the plate will sit absolutely flat, providing maximum sustain and vibration transfer. Stiffness and flatness are paramount in this design, and would not be obtained using. 050 material and stamping processes. There is no chance of unwanted feedback with this bridge, and Callaham has chosen cold-rolled carbon steel for tonal reasons. Hot-rolled steel as used in the Fender bridge is soft, and also contains pits and voids that require heavy chrome plating (chromed plates first have to be copper-plated to fill the voids, followed by nickel and then chrome, to obtain an acceptable-looking part that hides the material flaws). Using stainless steel would eliminate the need for plating – it would require only buffing – but the sound is too bright and thin, making it unacceptable. The cold-rolled material as used by Callaham is extremely uniform and allows for direct buffing. Callaham applies a nickel plating directly to the steel strictly as a rust preventative. The result is a warm finish, which works beautifully for those building a repro guitar. Making the guitar easy to play is also important. The sides of Callaham’s bridge are lowered to allow for easy palm muting (Leo Fender wasn’t a guitar player, and one of his most glaring design flaws – on both the Tele and Strat – was designing bridges with covers that prevent palm muting). The front lip of the treble side is removed entirely to allow access for finger picking – a trick done for years by great Tele players. The two small screw holes on the front corners of the plate may be used at the player’s discretion. Because of the rigidity of the plate, using the screws will provide only a modest increase in sustain (they would make a more noticeable difference on less rigid bridges). Screws are included with the bridge for those wanting the maximum available sustain. CALLAHAM SADDLE IMPROVEMENTS It is extremely important that an instrument intonate correctly, and Callaham guarantees this with their saddles. It’s equally important that the strings don’t touch the height adjustment screws, which can be a problem on Fender bridges and their copies. Callaham ensures that this won’t be a problem with their saddles by using smaller-diameter set screws, and moving them out closer to the ends of the saddles. This allows the string to rest on a perfectly smooth surface. They also install height-adjustment screws of the correct length, preventing the screws from protruding up above the saddles and causing discomfort to the picking hand. Callaham’s saddles are available in either brass or stainless steel. The brass has a warmer tone and the steel has more punch and sustain. Two methods of compensation (intonation adjustment) are available: original “slant” compensation, or “enhanced vintage” compensation. The enhanced vintage saddles were introduced for those who want to maintain a complete vintage look and have perfect intonation. They offer the same benefits of Callaham’s original slant-compensated saddles, but with the 90° (right-angle) look of original’50s saddles. A problem with some saddles that are currently available is that they touch each other firmly. Some manufacturers state this as having been an intended design consideration, but their logic is flawed, since this design has the consequence of allowing sympathetic vibrations from one string to influence the vibrations of another string, causing dissonant overtones that can drive players crazy (especially at high volume). It’s this type of vibration that occurs on acoustic guitars, with their single saddle, and that can contribute to beating tones when certain chords are played, and phasing problems on other chords. Callaham purposely avoids firm contact between their saddles for this reason. The Standard Telecaster (Mexico) uses a cheapy 6-saddle bridge that is the size and shape of the American Standard bridge. But it uses the vintage American 4-screw mounting – with string holes behind the mounting screws – whereas the American Standard Tele bridge uses a 3-screw mounting, with the string holes in front of the mounting screws. If you want to replace the bridge on a Standard Tele (Mexican), then you need Callaham’s vintage bridge, not their American Standard bridge. Note that the vintage bridge will not completely cover the area on the face of the guitar that was originally covered by the Mexican bridge, which is about 1/2 longer than the vintage bridge (see the image above). We have first-hand experience with this replacement, as we at Tone Shapers have made this change to literally dozens of Standard Teles, and our experience is that the area of the top that is revealed by the bridge change is seldom more than slightly imprinted by the original bridge, and sometimes not at all, so there is usually only the most mildly-discernible visual consequence from making this change. But the bridge screws right on: The screw holes and the six string holes line right up and the guitar intonates perfectly.
