SX90R Tenor Sax
model. Since 1925, Keilwerth has concerned itself with creating
saxophones that allow the musician to shape his own sound
and style. With this in mind, Keilwerth took the technical
advantages and improvements of the SX 90, and added some extra
features to truly make the musician‘s instrument his own.
The result was the SX 90 R (the R standing for tonehole rings),
a saxophone reminiscent of the old Conn and Buescher saxes
of the 1940s.
The most striking feature of this saxophone is its toneholes.
The SX 90 R uses tonehole rings which are soldered on to the
standard drawn toneholes. The tonehole rings give the pads
a longer life, and the rings themselves are easier to replace
if necessary, because they are a piece separate from the tonehole.
The production of darker, more immediate, less focused sound
is an added benefit of the tonehole rings, which allow the
musican to form his own individual voice.
Each saxophone is inspected by experienced professionals.
