Here we have a MK VII tenor, first I’ve played. Word has it the “M” Prefix serials play better. I cannot say if that is true but this plays really quite big and wide with a bright forward presence that is very satisfying. The pads are older but I’ve got it running at the moment. I would suggest an eventual overhaul once played enough to decide how you want it set up.
This horn has lived, has normal bumps and bruises and some repairs but overall in fine shape for a player. Neck is in excellent condition, never bent it appears. The attached video illustrates the response pretty well, was a surprise to me.
