I have one and did a playtest - it is in original condition but still works.
play three different mpcs,hope it gives an idea - Mr. Sommeruga certainly
had great ideas and knowledge.

I can see the appeal to the players like Ornette and others and I don´t think there is anything wrong in
having a great design for an instrument. The modern Plastic saxes look (unfortunately to me) like our times,
pragmatic, cheap, toyish. Don´t get that vibe from the Grafton besides it being certainly meant a cheap instrument.

Hope this is helpful.
...the recording quality is low, just a Macintosh labtop with the built in Video software without editing...

Have a great day and listen to Ornette!

I’ve always wondered what one of these horns sounded like up close. Video is very instructive and very entertaining. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

Hey, it's an instrument with a beautiful aesthetic. Also with a good sound, a little more with its original mouthpiece for my taste. Truly particular and in really nice conditions, compliments for the object and for the condivision . Thanks
