Re: Arta Guban
I just almost by accident came across an Arta Guban Luxor Solo Alto saxophone, and has found out, that they were made in Hungary from late 60ies to arround mid 1980. My horn is a silver glass blast body with lush engravings and a goldwash inner bell.
Being the owner of an SML Gold Medal alto and a Yamaha costum Alto I must say: NOT IMPRESSED.
The mecanics are simple and with only little adjustment options, and the intonation at the bottom is of by a quater tone from low C and down.
But if you want a very nice mantlepiece for display - it will do the job very nicely.
AND the case that came along with it looks like Count Draculas coffin on the inside....
