“I play sax but mostly it plays me”
That was established as far back as I can remember but this is an overstated opinion based on all the cheap horns that come out of RPOC. That said RPOC does have factories that turn out saxophones and other instruments that are truly professional on every level. These horns are not marketed on eBay or reverb. You have to do the research and contact several companies to find them. Buffet 100 and 400 are made in mainland as is the Virtuoso. Both of these are top notch horns but they will set you back 2K and up. In my research I have found several that can produce horns at a very high standard but they are also manufacturing OEM parts for Taiwan and Europe.I agree. Saxophones made in the People's Republic of China are often defective, but horns made in the Republic of Taiwan have a much better reputation.
