Over the years of being a saxophone repairman I have tried many different combinations of plating’s on saxophones… One of the combinations that received the most positive response was the combination of Silver-Plating the Bell, Bow and neck of the saxophone leaving the rest lacquered…. I did many YANAGISAWA Baritones, Several Selmer Mark VI Tenors and Altos and a few other brands….. After the great response and never any negative feedback I decided to make the ES & GIV saxophones with this combination of lacquer and silver-plating. In addition to helping the response of the instrument they look beautiful…..
With the soprano’s I silver-plate the complete body and leave the keys lacquered.
*By leaving the keys lacquered the saxophone is easier to take care of and keep looking good than, if the saxophone is completely silver-plated… it has about 95% of the same tone and response caricaturists of the completely silver-plated saxophones.
