The build quality, the setup and the whole package adds up to a very credible pro-quality instrument - and when you factor in the feel, the tone and the response I think it's fair to say that the RAW XS raises the standard for the 21st century alto. Author of the Haynes Saxophone Manual. As an advanced and professional sax player you will have experience of playing saxophones made of different metals and finishes. The new'RAW' and'RAW XS' Signature Custom saxophone have been developed following more than 12 months of testing, discussion and research with sax players around the world who wanted a genuine vintage sound along with an aged look to their instrument.Unlike many other Companies who simply apply a coloured finish to the instrument to give it the appearance of being old, we have simply taken the saxophone in it's raw manufactured condition and added the mechanism. The most popular model is the RAW and RAW XS which are designed to'age' and look like a'vintage' horn very quickly. Saxophone undergoes extra (XS) hand buffing to the body and mechanism which as sax players tell us "gives it a stunning and yet realisitic old sax look" compared to the standard'RAW' sax model which is visibly darker throughout.
