Since 1986 the Swedish saxophone quartet Rollin’Phones (Tove Nylund, soprano saxophone, Kristin Uglar, alto saxophone, Edith Bakker, tenor saxophone, Neta Norén, baritone saxophone), has been an important part of the Swedish music scene.
The group is an “all-round” chamber music ensemble with classical music as a speciality. The repertoire ranges from the standard pieces and transcriptions to works by contemporary composers. Several compositions have been dedicated to the group by both Swedish and foreign composers and there are continuous efforts to encourage exciting collaborations with other instrumentalists/singers and art forms. Examples from recent projects include percussion, dance and visual art.
In addition to chamber music concerts, the quartet performs as guest soloists with symphony- and wind orchestras in Sweden and abroad. The Rollin’ Phones have toured extensively and have participated in festivals all over the world including in Europe, USA, South America and Asia.

Without music, life would be a mistake.
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 'Super Action 80 Series II' called 'Series II' is the oldest model manufactured in our factory. It holds the acoustic qualities of historic models. Backbone of our catalogue, it is the alto versatile par excellence.
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.
