I have always wondered why more manufacturers do not use the left side sideway trill/alternate keys like the early JK.
There's close up pictures of the neck below in this thread. I don't think it's is a double octave key - the lower part looks more like a fancy bracket to hold the top mechanism.What the hell, double octave key on the neck, one above and one under?
I certainly meant no disrespect to Amati! I know they've made some very good horns. I just meant to say that my own ideal instrument is many thousands of dollars less in cost, so I'm definitely not the demographic for this model.well the fact that this is made by AMATI ( one of the oldest factory in Europe, albeit one which has produced cheap saxophones for years) has not bearing to its quality ! These instruments were made at a very high specification points and may have all the right to sell for that price.
