This is a very good condition Rampone & Cazzani R1 Jazz “Pure Brass” model (unlacquered) alto sax, serial number 12212. This alto has seen little playing time and is in excellent 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.” This one shows some minor spit marks and discoloration on the bell, as seen in the photos, but no dents, dings, or major scratches. We'll give the sax a quick check-over in our shop to make sure it is sealing properly before it ships, so you'll get it ready to go.

 

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 in a like-new BAM Cabine case in black, perfect for the traveling musician.
