A rich, vintage tone produced by a pure bronze saxophone
Gottsu saxophone is made of pure unlacquered bronze, which produces a special captivating sound that is rich with a sweet and charming shimmer. Gottsu saxophone tastes like a three decades vintage instrument. You’d feel a bitter “Jazz Sound” at your first play.
A high-quality, standard model
We’ve designed Gottsu Saxophone VI model in pursuit of a good standard model, not “a certain part of incomparable excellence”. These days, we feel that modern musical instruments tend to have a built-in new mechanism. Needless to say, the original structure’s excellence is the prime reason why vintage musical instruments get acclaim at all times. Through a long process of trial and error, we became sure that pure bronze is a quality material for creating a great saxophone. The Gottsu Saxophone holds the promise of great potential, and produces a supreme sound which many Jazz fans have been seeking.
Saxophone Material: Bronze alloy
The Gottsu Saxophone is made of bronze not bronze brass. Bronze brass is copper-rich brass alloy of copper and zinc. Bronze is also a copper-rich alloy, but it is made of mainly copper and tin. Bronze is more durable and tenacious alloy than brass and the material allows one to enjoy the particular sweet-deep sound, resonating beautifully.
Having attempted continuous improvement to create a great saxophone, we made several visits to Taiwan to improve more details and were able to reach a prime-quality saxophone. The booster is made of plastic as a vintage saxophone. Normally, unlacquered instruments produce articulations those are apt to be light, airy sounds. Gottsu Saxophone is made of pure unlacquered bronze; however, it allows one to comfortably play, producing an outstanding tone quality. After returning to Japan, we strongly felt the fabulousness of Gottsu Saxophone by comparing to saxophones which we used to play. Of course, we tested using the Gottsu Sepia Tone Mouthpiece.

Background of the Gottsu Saxophone
Gaining fame among musicians even overseas, we began to participate in exhibitions abroad. Due to security matters, the visitors were not permit to bring their instruments into the exhibition sites, so we needed to lease instruments from manufacturers each time to test Gottsu Mouthpiece. From there, we thought up the idea of producing a Gottsu Saxophone.
