Re: WELTKLANG ALTO,PRO OR NOT?
Weltklang Saxes were built in the former east-German Federal Republic (GDR). I would not consider them pro saxes but if you know a good saxtech you can turn a Weltklang into a decent horn. The problem lies within the pads, they were produced from inferior materials using cardboard and cheap plastic. If repadded properly, a Weltklang becomes a reliable intermediate horn. If you can, try a Weltklang Baritone, they are great players with a much more modern design/mechanism than the alto or the tenor.
