Nope, but I would trust WW&R's judgement. I doubt they would stock anything that would be a complete dog.

Have a look on their website www.lemondesaxophones.com - they seem to be a Netherlands/Taiwan collaboration and aimed at the middle/higher end - approx £1500 - £2500. I wouldn't be surprised if they have some connection with System 54 saxes (also stocked by WWR) which are very decent saxes indeed. The "Global" is one of their lines.

Don't know any more than that without further online research.
Hope this helps
Tom

It's living in Germany. In german words are strung together to make a compound, descriptive noun. There's no written indication of where a word in the compund noun starts or stops, and it gets you into the mindset of deciphering these long words. So a car is Personenkraftwagen, made up of three words, Personen (people), Kraft (power) Wagen (waggon). Of course the word is too long to use/write, so it's usually abbreviated to Pkw. That's still a mouthful, so more often you'll use the word Auto, but pronounced the german way 'out-o'. Means you need to learn the full word and it's abbreviation and the colloquial term.

Often it's not clear where the boundaries are...

One of my favourites was on the menu at work. The english was 'peascreamsoup'. Did the pea scream as it was made into soup?

yes, they are imported under this trademark by BIN the Dutch importer and distributor for Selmer. Made in Taiwan they are good saxophones which many think are just ever so slightly on the dear side. I have played them and they are wellmade and well sounding.
