Re: NEW KEILWERTH FACEBOOK PAGE!!
Had the opportunity to play test a Shadow tenor earlier this week. What a great saxophone. It easily out played my old Mark VI. The tone was so unique. I'm looking for something that's great but a bit different. The Shadow offered a huge sound with a bit of a bark to it. I've never played another tenor that had this quality to the sound. There's an intangible to the sound that's difficult to describe, but you know it when you hear it! It seems like all the manufactures today are going for the Selmer core sound. Its good, but too much the same as everyone else for my taste. Kudos to Keilwerth for making a truly unique sounding tenor that plays out of this world good and looks cool to boot!
I've been in the woodshed putting 5-6 hours a day into saxophone for the past several months after taking a long hiatus (nearly 35 years). But when I was active I played a lot back in the day and its coming back quickly. Lots of long tones....... My first priority is sound, then response, then feel.
Anyway, I'm putting my money together to purchase a Shadow tenor later in the year. They're not cheap, but I wouldn't expexct it to be. Thanks Al for making this information available!
