The Perfection iHorn is made from an antique Saxophone, made between C. Bruno & Sons in New York.  It was most likely made between 1915 and 193.  It is gorgeous and the patina speaks of the passing of substantial periods of time. 

The saxophone was designed around 1840 by Adolphe Sax, a Belgian instrument maker, flautist, and clarinetist.  Born in Dinant and originally based in Brussels, he moved to Paris in 1842 to establish his musical instrument business. Before working on the saxophone, he made several improvements to the bass clarinet by improving its keywork and acoustics and extending its lower range. In the 1840s and 1850s, Sax's invention gained use in small classical ensembles (both all-saxophone and mixed), as a solo instrument, and in French and British military bands. The modern layout of the saxophone emerged during the 1930s and 1940s.  Today, the Saxophone is used in all musical settings, from symphony to rock.

The Perfection Sax is tall and slender, with a loud deep voice.  It is pure in its essence and once again demonstrates the beauty of age.  Don’t overlook the elderly nor take for granted the wisdom of years.
