Whether it’s the room filling warmth of the 1930’s, the classic rich and mellow sound of the 1950’s, or the up to date attack and projection that’s demanded from today’s generation of saxophonists, the Temby Australia Vintage alto saxophone is the trusted favourite of many professional jazz players.
This is the most expressive sax in the Temby lineup – it allows you to develop your own unique characteristic sound and doesn’t force you to copy any other player’s sound. This saxophone will be your new voice and will express your music the way you want.
The proven ‘Últra Keywork’ design is renowned for its efficient, fast, smooth and silent action. If you are recording, you will appreciate the lessening or complete absence of mechanical noise.
Interesting high F# concept
The Temby Vintage is available with an optional high F# key. Without the high F# key there are less posts soldered to the body of the horn, which means there is less metal and solder to inhibit the resonance of the body. There is a distinct change to the overall tone of the Vintage if the interference from the high F# key is removed. When you play a Temby Vintage alto (no F#), you will also find less interference with the airflow in the top part of the body due to the absence of the high F# tone hole. You will be playing a horn that is more reactive and responsive to air flow and pressure. The difference is astounding and well worth experiencing for yourself.
Unlacquered raw brass neck, body, bell and keywork.
This finish allows for the instrument to age rapidly creating a genuine vintage patina.
The GL deluxe shaped flight case is a standard accessory with this model alto saxophone. It is extremely light weight and incredibly strong. Finished in a carbon fibre “look” completes the beautiful alto sax package.
