Listing for sale from my collection accumulated over the years VERY NICE JAZZ HORN THE INDIANA Made BY MARTIN ELKHART , IN USA from CIRCA 1940s/50s period. Note :The Indianas had different serial system so please dont confuse this serial range with the 1940s early Committee.This #35xxx range appears to be common for this Indiana models as I have another one listed in raw brass patina also with #35xxx serial range. This Martin INDIANA is a sibling of the Committee model and this one is Medium bore like most Martins although it plays open and very jazzy! This is the only Indiana.
This horn has very nice vintage gold original lacquer with normal wear and tear (SEE PHOTOS) found small ding on top of bell bow. There are no repairs or any resolders on it! It is a sturdy, straight very good looking horn and will last for a long time.
Noticed pulling knob missing on 2nd slide but you can flip this slide to the other side if you dont want to see that small soldering circle where knob normally would be soldered. This horn has a bell near 5 inches (4.75) and it plays very well. All slides pull as valves are great. Its not a Committee but its much cheaper than Committee alternative from the Martin brand and from the era great horns were made and sound as close or even better than Committee depends what sound concept you have or prefer.
I used to compare many horns to each other and this one is not an exception a great player. Horn comes with vintage handy case in which appears originally this horn came to me. Still has a sticker someone put with name and model. One latch still has spring working but both close and hold. Both Case and the horn are gig ready!
You need your own mouthpiece. Big thanks to people just like you who made this journey on the bay possible. So need residence or business NO PO BOX! I dont do in person pick ups.
