I did a search here and did not find much info on Chateau saxophones. I was down at my local band place last week and saw a new Chateau Custom sax in copper bronze lacquer - had rolled toneholes, looked a beauty and played well - all for $1200 or so. From what I can make out the makers of this brand have been making saxophones for 20 or 30 years now. The local shop which usually sells Antigua Winds looks to be switching to this brand for the 'affordable' range.
Does anyone have first hand experience with this brand, how does it compare to other Taiwanese brands - from what I could see, they are very affordable. I'm looking to get my son a new alto for next year and am looking at what is out there.
