Does anyone know the difference between these two saxes? I saw them at wwbw at the exact same price and they look relatively similar. I was also wondering if these saxes were any good and if possible better or worse than an Antigua Winds pro level tenor.

Thanks!

Rickinator,

Sorry for the late reply, I have to assume the two saxes you are looking at are ATS 73PQ and an ATS 73P. Amati uses the letter suffixes after the model number to designate the different finishes used.

P should designate a Nickel Silver Neck and Bell and Brass Body with clear lacquer

PQ Looking at the wwbw picture, the bell looks quite a bit darker, but I do not know the details

Finish choices are avaible on all saxaphone lines in most cases.


Below are pages from Amati's catalog with different finishes.

The only differences on the two saxes you are looking at are the finishes, but we all know that can make a world of difference to some SOTW members.

Regards

Dennis
