Almost a year ago Friso met Joshua for the first time to show our new tenor saxophone prototype. After this, Joshua and Friso started an extended collaboration in which Joshua tested every improvement to the prototype while Friso continued to learn and develop the instrument. The reference point was always Joshua’s own Super Balanced Action, the very best sax from his personal collection that he has played exclusively for the past 10 years.
Now almost a year later, Friso went over to London to visit Joshua and show him the latest developments done on the instrument. Joshua played a full concert on the horn in the UK’s finest Jazz Club and was truly impressed. He shared his findings and recommendations with Friso after having tested the instrument to its limits on stage. Important recommendations that enable us to further improve the sax.
