Mad scientist meets sax aficionado? There’s no particular reason for a repairman to go off designing and building his own saxophone. Why would you with quite a few respectable brands around? Thing is, Friso is always on a quest for the best possible sound. So he started playing with the idea of a professional sax that would feature a modern keyboard and action, yet played free and flexible. His thoughts soon sprouted into experiments with different materials, followed by a search for the best possible construction methods. The Free Wind alto saxophone became a true calling.
With all the right raw ingredients in place, we asked well-known tattoo-artist Henk Schiffmacher to create a unique Amsterdam-inspired engraving for the Free Wind Sax. Henk made a spectacular design that is now engraved on a series of limited edition saxophones. Today, after years of dedicated work, our precious is finally here. Read what artists playing the sax have to say about it. Or watch a movie below to get a taste of its sound. A lot of personal care goes into delivering this fine instrument. We’ll be glad to have you over so Friso can tell you all about it. You can contact us here.
