Since the advent of the Selmer Mark VI, saxophone makers have been chasing a ghost. How to make a horn play as well but without the inherent intonation issues found in many of these lovely horns. What do you add, subtract and design to help keep that wonderful feeling saxophone, but transplant it onto a new horn. Steve Goodson, with the help of designers of a prototype saxophone feel they have created the exact horn people have been looking for. In Mr. Goodson's words, "All of these horns have black kangaroo leather Saxgourmet pads and gold plated solid brass Noyek resonators, three ring strap hooks, ergonomic Saxgourmet thumbrests, double arms on the low C, low B, and low Bb keys, abalone key touches, threaded octave pips, and very extensive hand cut engraving on the bell, bell flare, body tube, and neck. The alloy used is 82% copper, and they are exceptionally strong players" If you are not into the nitty gitty of saxophone design, the bottom line is that these horns can play. Boasting a big, focused sound, the only thing that can match up to power from the horn is the copper finish which is as bright as one could hope for. If you interested in a horn that feels old, looks new and sounds great, the Model Six could be the horn you have been looking for.
