Re: Weltklang alto sax year of manufacture

Since my last post I have found that the tuning problem seems to depend largely on the reed used - with a different reed from the same box of D'Addario Hemke 3.0 reeds, the tuning is much more consistent.

Re: Weltklang alto sax year of manufacture

So, after a bit of work the horn plays and sounds great - it blows the 1986 model away. However, the tuning is very sharp in the high register and flat in the low. I'm using a Selmer S80 mouthpiece, and I'm assuming the sax needs a short shank mouthpiece - am I correct?

Tobi, assuming Mario has seen your post, I'm guessing that the reason he has not replied is because your guess of 1962 is correct. Mario, if you see this, can you please tell me the month of manufacture?

Re: Weltklang alto sax year of manufacture

Thanks, that's about what I guessed too. I have a much later Weltklang alto from 1986 - but it has uneven tone holes so I'm hoping this one will be OK. Is there much of a difference in quality between Weltklang horns from around 1962 and those from 1986?
