Vintage Saxophones

A SOTW background and Index

by Harri Rautiainen


It all started sometimes in early 1997. Fred Cicetti contacted me regarding SML saxophones. I was then looking to buy a tenor in addition to my alto sax. I came across a SML in Helsinki and remembered Fred's e-mail message. Fred convinced me that for the price it was a good buy. So, in May 1997 I became an owner of ca. 1982 SML tenor, serial # 201xx. In July 1997 Fred Cicetti wrote his first SML background study of the fine Strasser-Marigaux saxophones. Later came the follow-up stories and surveys by Fred and legend lives on. Also, The SML area of the Sax Discussion Forum has a loyal following. Pete Hales completed a new thorough study of SML saxophones in 2002.
