What Martin said in 1962:
"Since many professionals choose this intermediate grade instrument, it is highly recommended for promising students planning a career in music."
Martin Imperials have been favored by pros and students alike, and this one in particular is in great shape! Some early signs of lacquer wear can be found near the bell's engraving, bell crook, on the valve section, and on the outer tuning slide tubes. Some faint dent scars are apparent in the bell rim, but were smoothed out beautifully. There's also evidence of solder work on the brace connecting the upper and lower outer tubes of the 3rd valve slide.
Minimal work was needed to prep this horn for sale. It arrived here clean, and in great playing condition. Our professional brass technician purged the slides and pistons and re-lubed the horn, gave it a good play-test, and marked it as ready for sale.
