HELP, I Want One!

This is a pristine condition Rampone & Cazzani R1 Jazz “Pure Brass” model (unlacquered) alto sax, serial number 12212. This alto has seen very little playing time and is in near flawless shape. If you are looking to save a bundle from where these sell new, this is a great opportunity.

 

Being an unlacquered horn, it doesn't take much playing for these horns to really start to look “broken in,” but this one still looks great. There's some water marks here and there, most notably on the bottom bow, but no dents, dings, or major scratches. It has obviously been treated with kid gloves and not seen much playing. The sax came to us on its original factory set up, and never received a good pro regulation. As such, it is currently in our repair shop in line for a proper adjustment, and we'll make sure it is in top playing shape when it ships.

 

This is the first unlacquered R&C horn I've played. I've played the silver and gold ones, and they have been on the darker side. This one still has a warm sound, but definitely feels more open and has a good response. It ships with original case (which definitely has a cool, unique look!).
