LUPIFARO SILVER SERIES ALTO SAXOPHONE "DARK GOLD" LACQUER
- In Stock
WOW, WOW, WOW! These new edition Silver Series Lupifaros have blown us away!
Where do we start?
LOOKS : the most beautiful dark gold lacquer we've seen on any new sax - absolute classic looking. Front F and side F# pearls giving it that classic vintage vibe.
BUILD : super tight rods, perfectly balanced keys, super neat soldering, refreshingly the overall weight is comparable to that of a vintage horn - we're a repair shop and are super impressed with everything about these.
PLAYABILITY : unbelievable - we playtested these against T James RAWS, Yamaha Customs, Yanagisawas, Selmer MKVI, P Mauriats - they seriously play as good as instruments 2 or 3 times the price in every way.
SOUND : the most important factor of any sax, this is where we were really blown away. WARMTH! the warmest modern sax we've ever played, unlike most modern horns they don't have that built in ping you get in the sound. Rather like the best vintage horns they have that thickness to the tone - remind us of the best bits about a nice Buescher with a little zing you get from a King Zephyr or early S20 plus the core of a Selmer BA or Super Sax. If you're looking for that Desmond, Konitz, Pepper, Hodges vibe, this'll do it perfectly. Obviously, put a high baffle piece on it and you'll get that funky, contemporary sound without the shrillness.
Every single Lupifaro is professionally assembled, set up and and perfectly balanced by us here at Curly Woodwind, ready to go and playing perfectly.
Comes complete with an excellent shaped (BAM style) case which is a real cut above the usual supplied case at this price point, mouthpiece, strap, care kit and of course, our famous 12 month warranty!
