The classic lacquer finish also contributes in making the sound more classic. Mechanics have been refined and further improved from the previous version, resulting in a very responsive but easily controllable instrument. As part of the Platinum Series, this alto is customizable on request in every aspect and the set-up is always carefully tailored to the specific preferences of each musician. This professional line is made in Italy by Luca Cardinali and is the choice of many international top artists.
