The Two Voices Tenor saxophone is breathtaking. There are few words that could describe the ease, sound and physical beauty of this horn. The background to the Two Voices is as unique and interesting as the horn itself:
"Taking inspiration from artist musicians and proud to show our strong attachment to the unique village of Quarna Sotto, our home above Lake Orta in the Northwest part of the Italian Alps, we today offer TRUE VOICES Saxophone series to reflect the voice of Quarna and its surrounding area. The TWO VOICES series represents the voice of Quarna through our passionate and ongoing research in offering musicians a new voice on saxophone. This is achieved by carefully and thoughtfully combining Bronze [Bare brass] and Solid Sterling Silver in homage to artist CARLO CASANOVA (The Very Last of the Romantics; 1871 Crema -1950 Quarna Sotto) through his acclaimed etching “Two Voices”, which illustrates the village’s two main church towers. Each TRUE VOICE saxophone exhibits a highly detailed and intricate straight line engraving technique that portrays Casanova’s rendition of the church towers; nothing could have described our new saxophone line any better…"
The playability of these horns is particularly fine. As with all Rampone saxophones, the handmade craftsmanship and attention to detail creates a horn that is even throughout all registers and feels as if there is no threshold to what you can do on these horns. From the quietest pianissimo to the loudest forte, this Tenor will respond and keep it's quality without making the player work extra hard. The combination of bare brass and silver provides a mixture of bright and dark, allowing for the player to shift and change to whatever musical settings they are playing in. Any player will be hard pressed to remember the last time they played a better horn than these.
