A WORD ABOUT
OF THE SUGAL SERIES III & IV
One of the main differences between our saxophones and other manufacturers of saxophones you may have seen on the Internet is in the construction and quality of our instruments
It is common knowledge that the
saxophone bodies of most other manufacturers especially those produced in China
It is our opinion that the difficult and tedious process of annealing the metal three times allows the horn to resonate or “breathe” much more freely.
If an instrument can be “tripled annealed” most if not all of the internal stress is removed in the process. The metal becomes tempered thus allowing it to “breathe while at the same time the overall molecular structure becomes stronger and of course alloys the metal to resonate clearer.
The Gary Sugal PROFESSIONAL Series III
and IV saxophones have “triple annealed” bodies, necks, as well as annealed
bells, thereby producing a “truer” “clearer” more powerful centered sound.
Sugal Professional Saxophones
(Series IV) Features High "G" Mechanism
All of the Gary Sugal PROFESSIONAL Series IV Saxophones feature our high "G" mechanism. This popular feature is found exclusively only in the top of line professional saxophones. The high "G" enables players to extend the range of horn into the altissimo without using alternate fingerings or modifying the embouchure.
Sugal Saxophones Features Base Plates At the Heart of Each Note!
During the production of sound the saxophone depends on a tube or chamber of air stream to resonate generating a sound. Any constraining walls will distort that sound and resonance characteristic as the air flows through the column.
In order to mass produce and satisfy consumer demands a number of instrument manufacturers find short cuts and use lesser productions methods to artificially create a smooth flow through the column.
As you probably know Sugal saxophones are one of the most resonant saxophones on the market.
That is due to the fact that we have designed a re-enforced "plate" to provide a dynamic resonant sound throughout the full range of all our saxophones. The "plate" provides the player with a firm "sturdy sound in the mid range with a sturdy pronunciations of each and every note
