Vintage Dolnet Bel-Air Alto Saxophone
A rare late 1950's/early 1960's vintage'Bel-Air' model Eb alto saxophone made by Dolnet of Paris. These are wonderful, hand-made instruments - worthy competitors to Selmer or Buffet! - but not imported to this country in significant numbers at the time, so not as well known. They were played by a number of American expatriate musicians, such as Don Byas and Lester Young, and have developed a growing following due to their quality and low price in comparison to better known vintage saxes. It is lacquered brass and is in great condition for its age! The recent set of Selmer tan leather pads (with brown plastic resonators) have been reseated and adjusted, key corks installed as needed, and the horn plays great from top to bottom, with a warm, spread tone reminiscent of a vintage Conn or Martin, good intonation, comfortable keywork: I've really enjoyed playing this horn! Comes with Protec gig case in solid condition. Please note that auctions may end at any time, as these instruments are often also offered on my site -' The Vintage Clarinet Doctor. Where more pics and information are available. Please check out the Vintage Clarinet Doctor on Facebook! I believe that vintage clarinets represent one of the most under-priced and underutilized resources on the market. Nickel and grenadilla wood are increasingly finite resources and the craftsmanship on some of these old horns makes them a real pleasure to own. Why not try a vintage clarinet from the Vintage Clarinet Doctor see the difference for yourself? And ask that you pay within 4 days or the item will be relisted.
