SOTW member mephipps knows about these. See if you can ask him.

I think they were still excellent tenors. The main difference being the non-stick G#. Maybe some of the keywork was a bit different, but basically, it is the same instrument as the later ones.

Stephen Howard does a good article on them on his website. …
Howard only reviewed the earliest iteration of the 2001 tenor. I enjoy Howard's site and bought his book, which is excellent. But I often disagree with his opinions on tone and sound.

I have the own impression that the position of sling ring on all (Blue Label, 2001, Medusa) causes a tendency to twist sax body...
I haven't noticed that JetPi. Which way is it making the sax body twist? To the right or the left?

Does yours say “Made in Germany” on it? Perhaps you bought one of the few Amati ones.

Yes, I agree with you KeyPi.

...Serial No 012854 - for those who were looking at that eBay listing
With that number, it wouldn't be an early 2001. More like a mid era.
