    BBlow,

    The horn is awesome, far better than I am as a musician. I just restarted playing and have joined the Pickering Community Concert Band. I am one of two tenor players, the other fellow, an excellent musician who is about 30 years younger plays a mint Selmer Mark VII. Honestly on the basis of tone, consistency and intonation I think my horn is a little better; and is far better looking

    I have tried several mouthpieces including a Meyer 6m and currently I am playing the stock mouthpiece for concert work.

    They do look like lovely horns. Where did you purchase it?
    Seems as amati is almost impossible to get any info from in regards to dealers and pricing.

    I just play tested the 73pq. I was blown away. If you like a big sound like a Keilwerth or Conn, you have to consider these horns. Intonation is great, big sound, and ergonomics are wonderful. This is a whole lotta saxophone under 2k. I have a Keilwerth SX90r and the sound is almost the same. This horn is just a hair brighter but I'm literally splitting hairs. My Keilwerth is for sale and I will be ordering the 83p as soon as it ships off.

    Hey my "NEW - Old Stock" Amaiti Super Classic Kraslice Tenor just arrived. I got lucky and found it on ebay from the folk at Ideal Music out of NYC - http://stores.ebay.com/IdealMusicalMerchandise. Man this horn is fantastic. The tone and intonation is very good. The upper and lower registers are clear as a bell. The horn even came with a kit that included a full set of pads, screws, Blue steel pins, cleaning swab, mouth piece & Steel cap. It even came with 4 reeds ;0) The reeds are worthless but a nice touch anyway. After a visit to my local SamAsh store to get some 2.5 JAVA Vandorens and play test a used YTS23 and a Jupiter Tenor as a reference I and extremely happy that I purchased the Amati. What's really cool is that after slapping the Vans on I was down in my studio(Basement) playing and my niece came down and said "Wow that sounds good", Now what would a teenager know about "Jazz Standards" But at least I'm not the only one that knows that the horn sounds great.

    BigMack,

    Congratulations on buying a great horn at a super price.
    The listing states that he had about '3 dozen' all together.

    For anybody considering buying a used tenor or low priced import should seriously consider one of these. To me it is a 'no-brainer'.

    Hello DTGAZ,

    I am also from Ontario, west side. Iwas about to ask you for the price but sisn't realize that your posting was 2007! Anyway, let me know how your tenor ATS83P is...it's been 3 years since. I am looking at getting one from the website you suggested...but I would want to hear from you first. Thanks. By the way, my daughter vactioned in Prage just a month ago after graduating from watreloo (Architecture)...she loved the city and was so inspired by its beauty. She is now ready to hunt for gainful employments. I share her passion for sax.

    Oscar,
    Welcome to SOTW, and the Amati sub-forum.
    I still have the 83P and a Amati Alto and Baritone that I bought on ebay.
    I live in Ajax Ontario, if you would like to try my 83P before you buy, send me a pm.
    I am glad your daughter enjoyed Prague.
