I have one of these,purchased in Indiana,not far from Elkhart. Mine is all brass

and was relaquered long ago,then moisture damaged in neglect for decades.

I recently had the horn repaded but then it wasn't so great and I'm learning so

was never sure if my playing was so bad or the horn had just seen its day

Before giving up I went to Perry Ritter's shop  in NYC up on 47th st. ,for a professional

go over. From the moment he saw the horn he said "It's a Martin" . When he returned the horn

to me really was ...a Martin. I feel lucky I got this horn and lucky again I found Perry.Now Im in ...The New Era ....
