This is a 1951 Aristocrat 140 series alto. It is respectfully relacquered without any buffin. The pads are the original snap-in type, almost new, the rollers (amber) and the springs are original. It has had a general overhaul around 2 years ago by Tim Brennan and it has been serviced by me. It is a very easy blowing alto with a nice friendly kind of vintage sound.
