Skill Level:




 Up for auction is this vintage (c. 1948) model 232 pro alto sax by Holton. Good vintage condition, original lacquer c.90%, couple tiny dings but no dents, dent work, or ugly solder repairs. The horn was disassembled, cleaned, rods straightened, posts aligned, toneholes leveled, installed all new Music Medic tan kid pads with flat metal resonators and new corks/felts, reassembled and adjusted for optimal playability. Built like a tank with great ergos, warm, dark tone and good intonation - nice engraving, too! Comes with original neck, mouthpiece, and period case with keys . Please see http://www.thevintageclarinetdoctor.com/vintage-holton-232-pro-alto-sax.html  for more pics and information! 

 My Qualifications

 I am a trained woodwind instrument tech and past member of NAPBIRT (the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians) working out of a private shop in Central VA and have restored many instruments for sale on ebay. I believe that my 9 years of positive feedback speaks for itself and that you will be happy with this item! Please consider joining the "Vintage Clarinet Doctor" on Facebook!

Dear Potential Customers

 Please remember that, if you wish to see quality goods and services on ebay, you should be prepared to pay quality prices! My offering represents: purchase and shipping of the original instrument, 6-9 hours of skilled labor using specialized equipment, cost of materials, and photographing, listing, packing and shipping the final product plus all the associated ebay and Paypal fees! I'm an American craftsman trying to make a living, so please keep those offers fair.

Why Vintage Clarinets?

 I believe that vintage clarinets represent one of the most underpriced and underutilized resources on the market. While there is some junk out there, there are many makes and models that are good to excellent players if properly overhauled and that will provide satisfaction to collectors, students and even pro players while saving the buyer hundreds of dollars! Nickel and grenadilla wood are increasingly finite resources and the craftsmanship on some of these old horns makes them a real pleasure to own. Why not try an overhauled vintage clarinet and see the difference for yourself?

Shipping and Returns

 Shipping is $32 in the USA or as arranged internationally. I accept Paypal, Wire Transfer, check, or postal m.o., and ask that you pay within 4 days or the item will be relisted. Paypal or Wire Transfer  ONLY for international bidders. Please let me know if you desire insurance so I can add it to your invoice! Please examine photos and ask all questions before bidding. 0 feedback bidders please contact me before bidding. Non paying bidders will be prosecuted to the full limit of ebay policy.

                                                         THANKS FOR LOOKING!
