Music is my life and the saxophone holds me alive.
Developed in collaboration with Gilles Tressos (Quatuor Hanabera), the 'Series III' baritone is a very well tuned instrument, rich in overtones, consistent over the whole register with fluid transfers.
This instrument with a warm tone 'unfolds' a centered, flexible and subtle sound, which suits each type of repertoire in the lineage of the 'Series III' saxophones.
Its perfectly mastered ergonomics gives an impression of stupendous agility unique to the baritone. It weighs 300 grammes less than the 'Series II'.
The 'Series III' Alto is no doubt the most performing of our catalogue. It is a very accurate model in terms of tuning and emission. It offers a great richness of tone.
