Admin and all around good guy.
Flawed? Please tell us more.The other thing to mention is that Martin was bought and sold so often, it's difficult to follow all the changes -- especially as Martin occasionally made horns for other folks, like the beautiful Olds Super and one version of the fundamentally flawed, rare and very pricey Lyon & Healy "Perfect Curved" soprano. (Pricey? Very. There's one for sale for $4500 at http://www.vintage-instruments.com/navigate/catidx11.htm.)
