I recently worked on an unusual alto saxophone with the name AmatiKraslice engraved on the bell. It needed quite a bit of work, but it seemed to be pretty well made. It was quite heavy and had the bell key mechanisms of the old Bueschers and a LH pinky table shaped much like a Martin I believe.
The reason I am posting this is when I play tested the sax, it knocked my socks off. A beautiful even scale from top to bottom, a nice warm rich tone, and excellent intonation throughout the range. Has anyone else ever heard of or played one of these saxes made in the Czech Republic?
One more time, I was taught the lesson to "never judge a book . . ."
This was obviously one of the earlier student models. I went to their website and they have several models above the equivalent of this one. I would really like to try one of their more professional models, if the student horns play that well.
