Hello all,

if anyone was wondering who made "Loudwes Elkhart-Indiana" saxes, I have just found a match: these are Orsi (Italy) stencilled horns.
In particular the sax I looked at is a: "Eb Professional Model Alto" , as described in an old Orsi catalogue I've found.
This model has the bell keys on the right hand side and the tell tale 'teardrop' bell to body brace.
Considering it has been sitting in a basement for the past 30 years, it didn't play badly at all, nice sound too!

Anyway, just in case anyone had one lying around and wondered about it's real origin...

MMM
