Current Allora saxes - B&S? Amati?

Hello Sax Colleagues, I was wondering anyone knows where the current Allora saxes are made? I believe they had been made by B&S in Germany, but I have heard the current ones are made possibly by Amati, or maybe out of the Orient? In anticipation, thanks for your assistance.

The current, newest Allora offerings out of wwbw are not made by B&S in Germany. I believe they are Taiwan made.
Probably Chinese....
The new Dave Guardala New York horns are, in fact, Amatis.
There was an Allora Big Boss alto that was being resold here a while back, after having been engraved by and originally purchased from Jason Dumars, that was said to have been solid copper and a P. Mauriat stencil, the latter of which, if true, would confirm Taiwanese origin.
Thanks for your feedback

Thanks for that information, gentlemen. I asked on behalf of a friend. He was hoping the Alloras might be B&S stencils but I think you have all indicated otherwise. Like many, he and I both regret the passing of the B&S saxes which despite their excellent attributes, never quite gained the market share they deserved.
