Overview

Straight alto with a handsome finish.

The saxophone didn’t originally have its iconic bow bend. It was initially like the modern soprano, a straight horn. Sax Dakota has done the ultimate reissue of Adolphe Sax’s genius invention offering a straight alto sax. With the SD AS-1020, Sax Dakota has proven that it knows how to party like it’s 1846.

But this alto isn’t just about the stir it will create when you break it out on the bandstand. It is a warm, engaging alto with all of the color and subtlety of any major brand professional alto on the market. It can croon a ballad or bite off a strong and penetrating lead in a funk mix.

It features a rose brass body, bow, bell and neck, an oversized bell, blue needle springs and mother-of-pearl key touches. Hand-engraving and Sax Dakota’s famous Gray Onyx finish complete the aesthetic package.
