I fell in love with the tenor saxophone about 4 years ago, tried to teach myself to play...That was a challenge on its own. Started going for lessons about a month ago and my music teacher convinced me that the Alto Saxophone would suit me much better. Very grateful that I made the switch. Now I am borrowing her Alto Sax while I am try to sell my tenor sax.
I tried to find out what make her saxophone is but am not very successful. The letters ‘Dqvi’ are engraved on the saxophone as well as some patterns. It also has a six digit serial number. Where can I find out where this saxophone originated from?
Thank you :)
PS Totally blond today, but not sure how to upload photos from my phone. Seems that I must have a link to a site?

There's a link to post pics above every post. The postcard icon next to the smiley. Not sure why you got talked out of tenor. Sounds much better than alto. At least to a tenor fan.

Have fun.

Thank you, it works now - yesterday it requested a http:// ...link.
According to my teacher my frame is too small for the tenor sax, I really battled getting a range of notes out without gasping for air or hyperventilating. I am actually now able to produce beautiful notes on the alto

Looks very much like a generic Chinese made instrument. There's almost no information on who really made them. About all we know is that they have many, many names engraved on them. Quality varies from terrible to ok.
