  1. Borgani
    I have read several posts about Borgani tenors, where the owners are very satisfied. How about the Borgani altos, the OBA-series? Someone that plays or has stopped playing a Borgani alto? Please share your experience(s).
  2. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    After trying to research the subject for quite a while, I have hit the wall. My question is: how would you say the old vintage horns compare to the new models. Please don't get confused by the word "vintage". I think there is a modern model called "vintage". That's not what I mean. I've heard...
  3. Borgani
    So, I bought a used Borgani Joe Lovano tenor sax from reverb. It should arrive tomorrow. I was v. pleased with the price, especially after looking at various Selmer Paris models, including the Mark VI, for months. I realize it's a totally different concept from Selmer, and I'm excited about...
  4. Borgani
    I recently acquired a Selmer (London) Pennsylvania tenor which is the same model as shown on this site http://bassic-sax.info/blog/?p=36445 Same neck brace, guards, 3 hole strap ring. On that site they concluded that it was a Borgani. Here's an example of the identical Borgani version...

    Hi, I'm really interested in the Borgani alto, is there any place in the UK where they are still available? Or anyone around the London area who wouldn't mind letting me try their horn? Thanks!
  6. Bb Tenor
    Hello People, I find this Borgani tenor sax, can somebody tell me something about this model? How old is and is this a worth instrument? Thanks

    I have been the proud owner of a Borgani Jubilee tenor for years. For certain things things this horn cannot be beat. Out of curiosity I wanted to see how much they are selling for new these days. I almost couldn't find one for sale new online, but I think they have some at Ishimori in Japan...
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi there, Sorry to bug you about this subject. I'm getting to the final stage of decision making for a curved soprano sax. Would you give me your final feedback? gold lacquer Phil Barone (relatively new) vs. silver plated Borgani Macerata (old logo, one piece body). Both are in good shape. Both...
  9. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi there, A few weeks ago I got your comment on a gold plated Borgani Curved saxophone. Back then I wasn't quite ready to invest 1400. I found another case of Borgani curved saxophone which is a bit cheaper. It is silver plated and has high F#. But it is interesting that the logo is older than...

  11. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi there, I'm wondering if someone could comment on comparing sound and workmanship of Borgani vs. taiwanese curved soprano saxophones. There are two used curved soprano sax options, Orpheo (LA Sax Kim Waters) around $500 to $700 and Borgani around $800 to $1000. Do you think it's worth it to...

  13. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    This was a hard gig. We were booked as support but the headliners turned up late, so due to tech specs (lots of electronics) they went on first, so we played quite late and i expected most of the audience to leave - they didn't.... This trio has, what may be considered to be an unusual line up...
  14. Borgani
    I have found a strange sax called "Prof. Orfeo Borgani Macerata". I haven´t found any information of it on the internet, i think because it is very old, and if it is hand-made (or better say WAS HAND MADE) by Orfeo Borgani, maybe it is and unique model. How do you think guys, help me, maybe...
