Featuring High Copper Content for Increases Resonance & Response

This is a Dave Guardala New York alto saxophone, serial number 012524. This is the DG-401 model, with higher copper content than the earlier model, which makes it an extremely resonant player.


The sax is in outstanding shape, with no dents or dimples, and no resoldered joints anywhere. It does feature triple silver plated keys, on a gold-brass body tube and bell. The body is made up of 85% copper, a ridiculously high number, which really gives the horn a more “ring,” and a lightning fast response. The instrument does have keywork up to high F#. The original neck is also in excellent shape, with no major wear, and has never been damaged.


Pads are in excellent shape, with metal domed resonators, and is in great playing shape. When you put a lot of air into the horn, you can feel the sax come alive under you fingers. This horn will not disappoint.
