Notes on this instrument

This second generation Adolphe Sax Alto Saxophone was exquisitely restored under the expert hands of Marc van Mil in the charming town of Kerkdriel, Netherlands.

Allow me to introduce the beloved Adolphe Sax alto that graces my recordings and concert performances. This remarkable instrument is a second-generation Adolphe Sax alto, a testament to the enduring legacy of its creator.
