American Heritage 400 Curved Soprano - Satin Brass
- Customer Reviews (0)
Schiller Saxophones are tuned completely for a full color resonance using reed sizes from 1.5 to 5. The brass used within the body is virgin and not recycled. The proprietary mix of bronze within the Schiller Brass allows for a thicker molecule stack and is optimized for the sound wave lengths of the saxophone. Schiller customizes the brass thickness for the different sizes of saxophones to produce exact soprano, alto or tenor sounds.
The sound holes on the Schiller Elite Saxophones feature a thick 6mm rim that has been deburred and chamfered by hand. Schiller uses precision robotics to cut the holes to exact specifications and then relies on the skilled hands of professionals to certify the holes for exact fit to the pads.
European Goatskin is used for the leather pads on all Schiller Elite Saxophones. Goatskin is an extremely durable and soft material. This leather highly resists moisture while still completing a thick seal on the sound holes. It will not drag upon release from mating with the brass rim and will seal within a thousandth of a second allowing for extremely fast fingering.
Finish Types & Expected Sounds:
Schiller saxophones come in a variety of beautiful finishes. Aside from the aesthetics the finishes are actually tuned for different sounds giving players the option of buying a saxophone that is pre-tuned for a particular style or venue.
Antique Brass: This finish produces a rich and dark sound with additional core overtones.
