Comments about Allora Vienna Series Intermediate Sopranino Saxophone:
The Allora Vienna sopranino arrived today from WW&BW. First let me say that the hard shell case that came with it is very nice compared to other sax cases I've seen; sturdy, light weight and the hardware is top notch. Also came with a no-brand MP (haven't tried it yet) a two-screw yellow brass lig (using this), cap and cork grease. The sax itself is absolutely beautiful and elegant (for a small, almost miniature looking thing.) This is *not* a cheaply made instrument. Nicely done etching on the bell. Even the large, adjustable thumb rest is lacquered brass and nicely blended into the symmetry of the instrument. The faux pearl keys, while small feeling on my fingers compared to the soprano and other saxes, are sturdy and the modern ergos are great, smooth and balanced. So far I'm thinking I probably won't need to take it to my tech for any adjustments. The intonation, as best I can tell so far, is spot on. This was the main thing I was worried about, having read stories of Chinese or Indo horns that couldn't play in tune. But this is Taiwan workmanship, which seems to be gaining a very well deserved reputation. Using a Selmer Paris S-80 (F) MP and a Vandoren #2 nino reed, the horn just glides up and down in tune with even dynamics. I had no need to strain to control pitch or tone anywhere. Simply put, the Allora Vienna Sopranino Sax plays very well. Now to find the right repertoire.
