Description: Eb Alto
Manufacturer: Martin
Model: Handcraft Phase 3 Typewriter
Serial #: 99582
Finish: Lacquer

What makes this particular sax somewhat peculiar is that it is both a Handcraft, and a Typewriter model. Typewriter was not really a model name, but rather a nickname that was given to the horns by players. The saxes with these keys were officially called "Master" by Martin. In this case it seems that Martin put Master keys on a Handcraft sax. The 2 models were produced simultaneously, so this would not be too difficult--especially if the body tubes were the same.

Also, this particular sax was painted over with gold paint by the previous owner. Even the springs, rods, screws, and any dust and dirt on the horn was covered with the paint. Only the pearls were covered prior to painting. According to the seller, the sax plays as it is... Painted pads and all... Go figure....
