The vintage Martin Handcraft Standard is in great condition. It dates 1941. This horn is all original and the pads are new. The "Handcraft" models were handmade and hand engraved instruments that were produced for a very long time. The 'Handcraft" model name was used by Martin almost throughout the company's productive life. Many players are put off vintage horns solely from past experience with clattery old bangers, but a well serviced Martin has an action that goes like the proverbial train. It has a powerful voice. This horn has remarkable projection, but not at the expense of tone. comes with a hard case.
