OVERVIEW

Bronze alto saxophone with design attributes from early century french saxophones.

Bronze was the standard alloy used by European saxophone makers in the '30s and 40's. It soon gave way to brass alloys, capitalizing on new metal technologies for machining, shaping, annealing and spinning. As a result, that lustrous tone/timbre and resonance produced by Bronze was lost for decades.

Sought-after "vintage" saxophones became the new darlings of prominent saxophone atists as they searched for those rich elusive sounds of the past. DAKOTA has reclaimed this history with the introduction of its new XR SERIES of Alto and Tenor saxophones.

So it’s back to the future with Sax Dakota technology. It's the same precision craftsmanship, innovation and aesthetics coupled with the same bronze that produced exceptional Saxophones in France decades ago. They feature the same mechanical specifications as Sax Dakota’s existing models except for Bell/Bow size and design, which were borrowed from popular designs from the '30s.

4.75" bell with a gradual taper from the bow collar. Elaborate Bell /bow/neck hand engraving rivals any other brand sold and confirms this instrument as the new benchmark of excellence.


A lost and sought-after sound returns to your color palette. order one soon.
