Reviews

The System 76 Antique finish alto sax is a breath of fresh air!!! The tone quality is astonishing! I have had 4 sax players to ask me to let them play my horn! And of course I tell them, You have to go buy your own!!! Chris Jordan “The SaxDoctr”

System 76 gives me the best of both worlds. It is smooth and warm on the bottom end, but can also jump out and punch when you get on it. I really love the warm focussed tone of this horn and the ease of getting in and out of the altissimo register. I have just finished an original CD project and the System 76 sounds great on the recordings. Kevin Frazier

Care of Unlacquered Saxes

P. Mauriat, Yamaha, Yanagisawa, Forestone and Trevor James all produce some of their top models with an unlacquered option. The Signature Custom RAW and 66R-UL, in particular, are spectacular horns and quite noticeably different from their regular gold lacquered counterparts. Do note, however, that- as the metal has no protective lacquer, a sax like this will develop an aged look quite rapidly (which isn’t necessarily a problem- it can look superb, as anyone who’s seen Snake Davis’ Yanagisawas will testify). Though this can, to an extent- be slowed- it can’t be stopped entirely; an unlacquered horn will, over time, develop a vintage patina. That, in itself, isn’t a problem but if you’re looking for a shiny, new looking sax it’s not advisable to go down this route. Brass, by its very nature is quite matt in appearance- its only polishing and- in the case of lacquered instruments, the subsequent treatment of that polished surface that gives horns their shine

Quite frequently verdigris develops from spots of moisture left on the body of a sax though this is usually removable using a cotton bud and either lighter fluid or a drop of key oil (take extreme care if doing this to avoid the pads, either cleaning agent can cause damage here). While cleaning it is also very important to carefully check the tone holes as build ups of verdigris here would be an issue.

In short there’s a play off here- Mauriat 66R-ULs, Sig Custom RAWs etc are some of the best horns we sell but players should be aware they will age over time and an occasional clean up (especially round the keywork), is going to be necessary…
