FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WORLD RENOWNED SAXOPHONE PRECISION TECHNICIAN, KEN BEASON COLLABORATES WITH MACSAX®
AUSTIN, TEXAS (May 20, 2011)—MACSAX® is proud to announce a new alliance partnership with saxophone master technician, Ken Beason. Next week, Michael Crouch, President of MACSAX® and Ken Beason will travel to Taiwan, where they will meet with MACSAX® instrument fabricators.
While in Taiwan, Beason plans to incorporate production modifications in order to refine the final assembly and regulation process of the MACSAX® line of saxophones, which to date have been accomplished after delivery to Texas.
“Our goal is to bring back craftsmanship and design to develop MACSAX® saxophones that will be recognized as a ‘Benchmark’ instrument by both experienced players and upcoming players alike,” said Beason. “We have decades of information to draw from and there is no reason why MACSAX® can’t make our products the new standard once held by European designers.”
Beyond refining the current line of MACSAX® saxophones to Beason’s specifications, both Beason and Crouch plan to focus on incorporating features, mechanical design, improvements and regulations that utilize the best of today’s technology while maintaining the highest standards set by past saxophone manufacturing artisans. MACSAX® is dedicated to upholding Ken Beason’s design and classic craftsmanship standards for all current and future saxophones.
