Today I had an opportunity to play with a Wangful which was definitely Taiwanese made. The proprietor of the shop goes to Taiwan brings them into Singapore.

I tried a P.Mauriat and the Wangful (I think that's how it's spelt, I cant find a website for it) and it's similar, if not a better sound. I love the quality of the action and it feels like a solid soprano. I also had a chance to look at the alto which is a good copy of my '78 Selmer Mk VI.

The soprano sounds great, plays great and to me feels like a solid sax with consistent tones. I love the raw yellow brass finish too (and so does my girlfriend!). Just couldn't bring myself to dosh down 2-grand plus for a "Wangful". Know what i mean? Any comments/advice would be helpful as I could not find anything listed here in SOTW.

"I play a Wangful."

"A wang full of what?"

Yeah, unfortunate choice of names - not meant for export.

Selmer was making mark vi altos in 1978?

I dunno, I'd pass. Problem with unknown brands is that say something breaks......can you find a part for it? What sort of metal and stuff is it? Just lots of unknowns......

Gee, note that this was the OP's initial post on SOTW.

If you play a really bad note, will you be liable for a "wangful-death" lawsuit?

Because of the name they plan to have it stenciled for and sold abroad by foreign firms. In the US the Wangful will be a Johnson and in the U.K., Hiscox.
