This is a rare, factory nickel-plated Gastone Bini alto. It has a rich, resonant, vibrant sound and a solid center, not too spread.
The nickel plating is in very good condition considering the age of this saxophone. It does have wear in spots but is in overall very good condition. There are no major dents, except for a few small dings here and there, and very little soldering. Pads have plastic resonators and are in very good condition. Sax has original neck, which does have a small patch.
This is truly a collector’s saxophone made to be like an Adolphe Sax saxophone. I am researching the date of manufacture but believe it is from the late 1800s.
This is a great blowing Gastone Bini alto in wonderful condition. Truly a great collector’s saxophone. Sax cpmes in standard rectangular case.
