Thought he was playing a Lupifaro before, which is likely a Chinese sourced hardware finished in Italy?
I guess after they went out of businessHe was a Lupifaro/Navarro artist - back in 2015. I asked him earlier this year, it was his Selmer horns he was playing again, I believe it was the MkVI
Luca always did have his own company Cardinali Saxophone shop - before, during and after. His own line might not be too dissimilar except that it looks like he's making his products with a very small team or solo. He's evidently a good tech and used to work at Borgani. He even has his own brand of reeds. Like Lupifaro, Robertos etc they are made at Rigotti.I know the previous designer of the Lupifaro saxophones, Luca Cardinali, left the company in 2019 (he has his own company now) but I'm pretty sure Lupifaro still exists as a company - I exchanged emails with Max Pizio of Lupifaro regarding their Evo reeds last month.
