Gulf Alto Sax
Serial Number 67120786
This next-to-new horn is the best of its kind!
Well-suited for intermediate to advanced student.
I like this horn better than the Cannonball horns, Keilwerth and B&S horns I have seen and played.
The Gulf is an excellent example of how far the Chinese/Taiwanese (there is some collaboration with shipped parts - ala Vito French components
to Kenosha - from Taiwan to China) have come in producing fine quality saxophones. It's hard to believe anyone could open the case of this
Gulf and not be amazed at its beauty and craftsmanship. It has a solid feel and doesn't possess any cheapness about it, in my opinion.
It makes me think of how. decades ago, the Japanese had to build up their reputation as saxophone makers,
to the point where, today, the high-end
Japanese horns are now as well-respected as those made in Europe.
