THE WORLD'S FIRST POLYCARBONATE SAX
THE WORLD'S FIRST POLYCARBONATE
Vibrato A1 Polycarbonate ABS Alto SaxophoneVibrato A1 is our company's first Alto. The main tube, bell and neck are made of Bayer's Bayblend, which is a blend of polycarbonate and ABS. The ABS particle gives elasticity and flexibility, while the polycarbonate provides the required resonance for the instrument. With the right mixture of ABS, our Vibrato A1 has a vintage character that is a dark, warm sound hard to find in modern saxophones nowadays. The Vibrato A1 is suitable for children and is ideal as their first saxophone due to its good looks and super lightweight - at approximately 850 grams, it is believed to be the lightest fully functional alto saxophone available in the world today. The self-leveling silicone pads used on Vibrato A1 and all Vibrato saxophones are non-toxic and soft to ensure the perfect seal on every tone hole. These pads are very reliable, yet are most user friendly when it comes to DIY (do it yourself) replacement, which is an important concept of the design.
Vibrato A1S Polycarbonate ABS Alto Saxophone
An improvement on the original Vibrato A1 model, the A1S features some new breakthroughs. The body and neck of the A1S is made of solid polycarbonate. The 'S' stands for "Solid", in both the sound produced and the fundamentals of the body's construction. With denser properties, the Vibrato A1S gives a better resonance and a more projected, focused sound while still producing a thick and warm tone. The properties of this specific blend also produce a sax that is shinier in appearance and quite attractive. A traditional brass sax is very sensitive and users find that the sound can be distorted easily, not to mention the frequent maintenance and cleaning required. The Vibrato A1S requires much less maintenance compared to a brass sax.
