My 1931 Martin C-Melody Sax - you've seen it before...

The C-Sax Annexe is slowly rising - like Pheonix - from the ashes... This is just exploring if / how I can integrate pictures from my Flickr sets. Made in the early 30's, and now (mostly) repadded with cheap Chinese reflector pads - they aren't that bad - it's a very useful instrument.

Shame about the 'up-front and close' playing position, but that's the way it was in the Roaring 20's. I do draw the line at 'Dapper Dan' hair gel tho' :-)

(btw, the pictures were taken before the repad...)
