I just snagged an Alexandre alto (for $75!), put $125 of work into it, and it's great.

The only problem is, I know nothing about it.

It says "made in Italy," and is built like a Grassi/Keilworth hybrid. The thing plays like crazy - really fun to play horn. I'm thinking it is a mid 1960's due to the LH cluster layout, but it could be earlier; the case candy included a long form printout of a rubank fingering chart copyright 1950 (it's currently being professionally framed for my studio).

Anyways, is this a Grassi made Kielworth, or maybe even a Selmer stencil? The bell is MASSIVE, so I am leaning towards Kielworth, and the key layout/braces/guards make me lean towards Grassi horns.

What do you guys think? The photos were taken before I brought it to my tech, so yeah.

Here it is next to my 6m viii:

Your saxophone is a Borgani! The LH table is the absolute giveaway but hen you look at the rest and it is a Borgani.

A Bargain, Borgani!

Enjoy!

By the way the name of the German sax that you were looking for is not Kielworth but Keilwerth.
