just got myself a Arbiter pro sound sax, it stamped Taiwan and s/n 481296, someone said it was from about 1988 as it not stamped London... plays really well and I really like it a lot just wanting to know more about it as information seems very scarce...

Welcome to the Caff @bill_reed .

I've got quite a collection of old saxophone-related catalogues and flyers that I have picked up on my travels round music shops.

I can't remember where I collected a couple of colour glossy Arbiter things. One is a catalogue from 1995, celebrating 50 years "since a young Ivor Arbiter learnt the trade from the back room of a shop [in Soho] specialising in the repair of brass and woodwind instruments." The alto models in the catalogue are the "superb value" SAS565GLS and the "top of the range" WWX520LQ, but no prices are given.

The other item is an undated A4 flyer for Arbiter Pro Sound "jazz collection custom colours" showing a range of finishes including red, white and black. It says "prices from £719.00 RRP inc. VAT".

If you are interested in seeing the catalogue and/or flyer then start a Private Conversation and I could scan them for you.
