The Milano Saxophone Quartet: Damiano Grandesso, soprano ; Stefano Papa, alto ; Massimiliano Girardi, tenor ; Livia Ferrara, baritone.
The Series III Soprano ensures greater playability, particularly as regards pitch and blowing.
The blowing emission of its high register extended to high G has been largely facilitated. Selecting a straight or curved neck allows to get well acquainted with it.
The 'Series III' Tenor has marked, when released in 1997, an actual revival of the great playing flexibility of the old models. This gives it an ease of playing very much appreciated by saxophonists of all levels.
The 'Super Action 80 Series II' baritone offers excellent consistency of sound over the whole register, without break-up between low and high notes.
It develops a particularly warm and mellow tone, thus sublimating the features characteristic to this instrument.
The Concept range has quickly established itself as a new benchmark. Ease of response, with a round and rich sound, the Concept mouthpiece is characterized by its exterior design, which is above all for the comfort of the musician.
Available for the entire range of saxophones, the S80 has achieved an unprecedented level of popularity. It is characterized by its very warm grained, broad and full toned sound.
