I bought this tenor back from an old man who stopped with playing. I did an overhaul a few years ago, but it hasn’t been played much ever since. The pads are like new. Before selling it, I will take it apart, renew all cork and felt and rebuilt it again. It is very well playable as is, though: the pads are closing perfect. The sound is full and warm and direct, as every good Martin. Intonation and ergonomics are great.
