How the Saxophone is Made
Assembling the bell and the bow
The two parts are soldered into one
After the tone holes are completed, the bell and the bow are soldered into one piece.
Engraving is done by skilled hands
The engraving on a saxophone is done by a master engraver, who spends 30 to 50 minutes skillfully engraving the instrument. This work requires experience and skill.
Buffing to a high gloss
Next, an abrasive is applied to the surface of the tube, and the tube is buffed using a buffing wheel that turns at high speed. The same process is applied to the body after the tone holes are created.
Dust is shut out when lacquering
Before lacquering starts, the instrument is washed and placed in a dust-free room, where it is electrostatically coated. The bow goes through the same process.
