One of the perks of having a repair shop is that people will call the shop looking to sell an instrument.
Recently a gentleman called and said he had a Martin saxophone that was given to him when he was in 5th grade. He was 60 years old so you can do the math. He brought it over to, Brooklyn brass & Reed. I looked at the horn and told him it needed an overhaul. He said he was only interested in selling the sax because he wanted to play bass.
