A few weeks ago I bought a Amati lignatone nickel tenor, presumably from the 1950's.
In very very good condition, without a mouthpiece though.
Including case (not original) I paid 175 euros.
Sounds great, good intonation, it is screaming for a metal mouthpiece.
Still on the look out for an Amati straight soprano, I today bought a nickel straight
Super Classic nr. 4928. Absolute mint condition (except for the case, where I assume it rested for most of its life) with original mouthpiece that even is not so bad.
My youngest son played a Selmer until a couple of months ago, but this one sounds much nicer and is very good in intonation.
Being only used to Alto and Tenor for me the challenge is very big. But, I'll try.
Strange thing: there is no ring to attach a neck band, so I will have it made so much youngest can play his soon to be last exam (D) with it.

Amati: great instruments for rediculous prices if you shop smart.

Al that remains to complete the collection is a Baritone.
When I have bought one, I'll let you know.

Dutchy,

I also am trying to collect the complete set of Amati saxophones. The one I have not acquired yet is a Soprano. I agree they are great horns and well priced
