Antigua Model 25 saxophones

Matterhorn Music is very happy to announce that it has started to carry a select number of Antigua saxophones. To begin with we have brought in a Model 25 Tenor TS4348 as well as a Model 25 Alto AS4348. 

Model 25 Alto AS4348

Specs & description from Antigua website:

SERIES Model 25
KEY Eb
NECK Newly designed
BODY Yellow brass
TONE HOLES Drawn tone holes with hand-soldered rings
KEY ARMS Double key arms on low C, B, Bb
PADS & RESONATORS PISONI pads & metal resonators
BELL DECORATION New hand engraving pattern unique to the Model 25
THUMB HOOK Newly designed
FINISH Brass with unlacquered finish

In honor of our 25th anniversary, we created the Model 25- old school style meets modern technique.

It features the same body and enlarged bell as our popular PowerBell series. The soldered rings on the drawn tone holes offer similar advantages as rolled tone holes, but with a more consistent pad seat. This model is cryogenically treated, a process that realigns the molecules. This treatment can increase the strength of the brass, improve corrosion resistance, and reduce residual stress. Designed by musicians, for musicians, we have found that it also provides better resonance and fuller sound throughout the entire register.

The unlacquered brass develops a unique patina over time, making it one of the few horns that gets better with age. Our most intricate hand-engraving yet ensures that the Model 25 is a stunner.

“When I played the Model 25 tenor, I recognized that big PowerBell sound right away. But what really got my attention was the instrument’s immediate tonal response. When I pushed the envelope to get the Model 25 to sing and show its true colors, notes felt like they were jumping out of the horn and pouring into the room. Altissimo notes not only spoke with incredible ease but also resonated with deep tonal color.” DownBeat Magazine, May 2017

Price: $2950
