John finished an extensive restoration to an original 1856 Adolphe Sax (Alto)for a collector and friend here in Sacramento.  Tone holes were removed and resoldered as were many key saddles.  The body was hand polished to preserve the years of character associated with this unique historic instrument.  He had custom  white Kangaroo skin pads specially made and he himself hand stitched each pad to retain the look and feel of the original pads.  This instrument was set up to be played by it’s owner and enjoyed for many years to come.  Pictures of this interesting restoration will follow, so be sure to check back and see this wonderful transformation and rebirth.

John has over 40 years experience and has serviced the instruments of many famous international musicians including Branford Marsalis, Gerry Mulligan, Bobby Watson, David Murray, Bob Mintzer (Yellowjackets) and Jeff Coffin (Dave matthews Band) to name a few.  Set up your appointment today and experience a whole new level of performance the next time you’ve “Got A Gig”!
