For sale a very rare and special alto , only 2300 were ever made of these horns which offer a less complex but basically the same saxophone than the Leblanc Rationale and Semi-Rationale .

The horn is in good general state but it would probably need a good service or even an overhaul (although the pads are in very good state) since it is not playing well at the moment. To be restored to fully original state the guard screws would have to be replaced (someone has put some non-original screws in there and I don't know why) and the thumb rest for the left hand would have to be replaced with the original plastic one (both of these features are present on other Vito horns so it is not something exclusive of this rare horn). I originally bought this horn for myself but after careful consideration I decided to sell because I need a new car and the money would go towards some of it.

Inexplicable how this collectable saxophone has failed, until now, to catch the attention of the connoisseurs on this forum, I would have expected more enthusiasm.

I can reduce the price a little further (and take my losses!) and hope to move on.

500 euro and that includes 25 euro to the charity fund, paypal fees and shipping costs.

If someone wants to trade for an alto flute (even if in need of some attention) I am all for it and frankly speaking I would prefer it.
If you have any other trade offers please don’t be afraid to put it to me.

ok, I’ll knock some more money off, I am selling at a loss if this need be that way.

400 euro shipped. Includes 20 euro donation and paypal fees.

maybe a collector would want to combine this with my Keilwerth?

well, the Keilwerth is gone to a good home but I still think that this horn deserves better than being unused, how can I make someone happy? Trades are still possible but the item has to be somewhat enticing........ :)

I am going to send this to a reputable technician who will sell it for me, so it is off this market
