Notes on this instrument

I bought this instrument in the early 2000’s for 100 Dutch guilders. It was one of the first instruments in the collection. I originally wanted to use this saxophone to practise my repairing skills. (I once had the brilliant idea of becoming a repairman aside from playing, but things got fairly busy real fast. Maybe for the better; I did some work on this instrument, but I’m afraid it wasn’t really good!)

Van Engelen is one of the many Belgium brands. I still find the fact that this small country had so many saxophone manufacturers intriguing.
