We present the flagship model of Forestone saxophones, the RX series, with several innovations to highlight:
* Soldered "rolled tone holes", providing a centered and flexible sound. The fact that they are soldered facilitates the adjustment of the pads because they are a flatter surface and they are also repairable, not like the stretched tone holes.
* Saxophones made of top quality brass, with a specific alloy of 73% copper and 27% zinc. Many tests have been carried out to find this alloy, which makes these instruments rich and unique in the current market.
* FVCT cryogenic treatment (twice) on the body, bow, bell and neck to obtain more power than ever! This process consists of subjecting the instrument to a treatment of 196 degrees below zero by immersing it in liquid nitrogen, thus reinforcing and unifying its molecular structure as was done in the past with the "tempering" of the metal, which could be done by red-hot heating or by hitting it with a hammer. This hardening result, whether by thermal or mechanical action, achieves a much more striking and penetrating sound.
* Solid silver screws in the strip support and adjustment of the neck to body. Reduces resistance and more clearly displays the full range of harmonics. Fast action response.
* Worked until the exhaustion the ergonomics of its keyboard, becoming the most comfortable saxophone to play in the market. Adjustable right thumb support and blue steel springs for better response.
* The pads are Pisoni Pro Pads with metal resonators, placed and adjusted with great precision by the master Atsushi Watanabe, who is in charge of the assembly of all Forestone instruments of the RX series.
* Authentic mother-of-pearl on the keys and beautifully hand-engraved on the body and the neck of the saxophone.
