Absolutely fascinating video, just goes to show how much work is involved.Don't know if this strikes a chord with you, but Yamaha has a cool video, where George Shelby takes you through the building start-to-finish of a Yamaha EX. Enjoy.
It makes you wonder how they manage to make them for the money
Here's a thread on SOTW (I guess it's OK to post links there)
including a Sesame Street piece on making saxes.
I think the video has been removed.
I remember seeing a program on the telly when I was a kid showing how they made sax's
It was amazing how they hand formed the bell with a hammer
Does anyone know of any footage of sax's being made
