professional tenor saxophones…


R1 Jazz Tenor Saxophones
Heavy Silver-Plated
Vintage Heavy Gold-plated
All the features of the R1 plus

  • a Red Brass (high copper content) body that warms up the sound even more for the ultimate in saxophone warmth
  • Precious metal plating and no lacquer which can deaden the harmonics coming from the body. The result is a broad spread of harmonics which give the sound beautiful complexity and power... and the wonderful look only a true gold or silver-plated saxophone has.

R1 Tenor Saxophones
The R1 features a big bore tube reminiscent of Keilwerth geometry but with a bigger tenon diameter. The neck angle is sharper into the tenon and longer overall. This imparts a very warm sound with a fat bottom. The body  and keys are gold-plated and lacquered or silver-plated.
