Looks fantastic and plays like a dream.

The Giardinelli 812 alto sax' body, bell, and neck are made of German nickel silver, plated with black nickel, and elaborately hand engraved. The black nickel plating on the 812 saxophone body gives it added richness.

So far so good

Mixed reviews is all I received about this horn online. I am giving an unbiased opinion on how this horn plays. I might have a skewed view, as I play on a metal meyer 6 facing and 3 fibracell reed. This horn plays amazing!!! The tone is very mellow yet bright(if using the silver plated brass neck). The dark tone of the black nickel ads such richness to the overall color of the instrument. Once warmed up this saxophone creates the "pro" sound I wanted. I am a tenor sax player who plays on a yamaha 82z black lacquered tenor and finds that the Giardinelli offers such a nice contrast. Not only am I satisfied with my purchase, but I am also surprised about the price. The only downfall is the rumors about this Czech made horn not holding up to father time. As of right now I cannot corroborate these rumors,but my satisfaction of this horn stays the same. A great horn for a great price. This is a pro horn for sure!
