Logos on Chinese saxes
I just watched a YouTube video by a guy called "better sax" who seems to be a knoledgeable teacher and player. He just got back from an instrument manufacturers' show in Germany.
He spoke with a number of Chinese manufacturers about getting horns from them with his logo engraved on them. They all quoted a price of around $180 for a student model alto and would put any logo on them for an order of 20-100 horns, in effect letting him sell these horns as his own brand.
Better sax says that these horns turn up online at places like Amazon.
Although these horns are generally not junk, they are certainly not great, and the logo buisness strikes me as pretty sleezy.
