I was actually interested in this tenor (perhaps in part because it already had my initials, HK, engraved on it), but I never had a chance to bid/buy it. The sax vanished from Mark's shop before I had chance to contact him about it.

Here is the eBay history of what happened:

Starting bid:
GBP 599.00
Approximately US $920.54
[ 0 bids ]
GBP 850.00
Approximately US $1,306.28

Auction was ended the same day because item was no longer available.

I should mention that this was a 1 owner horn, and that when Mark got it he had it gone over at the shop. This is how he described the work: "Just returned from a full service at Ray Colomb's, new corks, felts, a few new pearls on the keys, regulated to perfection. Pads are all in excellent condition, none needed replacing at the service."

It's plating was 99% intact, and its tone is apparently huge. Its bell is enormous. According to Mark: "Gorgeous presence with a warm, woody, complex, core tone. Huge sound, with such an attractive mid range that you can get quite glued to."
