Hi,

Another guy who plays sax at the same practice rooms as me recently bought this Buffett alto. I plays really nice, and has really solid action. I’m wondering if it’s a Keilwerth made Buffet?

The serial number is: BCA 92583

It’s stamped ‘Buffet Crampton Paris,’ on the bell.

Here’s some photos. If you can help identify it, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks.

Thanks guys. I agree though: it’s not a bad horn. I played it for five or six minutes today, and liked it. Then again I also borrowed a Chinese alto with an unfamiliar name for about half an hour, a few months ago, played it with a borrowed mouthpiece, with a plasticover reed, and thought that was fine too. As far as I remember this Buffet is better than that unknown brand.

Milandro- presumably Buffet are still behind the design of the instrument though, and they would check the quality, train staff in China etc etc? They’re just manufacturing in China to cut production costs, right? So wouldn’t it still be better than other Chinese made saxes?
