RAMPONE&CAZZANI

Rampone & Cazzani Two Voices Straight Soprano Saxophone (Solid Sterling Silver & Bronze)

Two Voices - One Personality

The"Two Voices" series of Saxophones is a manifestation of our effort to unify our intense interest in the musician, his/her relationship with the instrument and the source of our inspiration - the community in which we live and work.
We take inspiration from "Le 2 Voci", a work by Carlo Casanova, to offer a musical instrument with a wide harmonic palette. The bells of the two churches of Quarna resonate with the two metals that characterize these saxophones.

Two metals, Two intertwined Souls, Two Voices

The raw and sensual combination of the metallic timbres of Bronze and Sterling Silver are combined as a tribute to the art of Carlo Casanova, known as the "The last of the romantics". He was born in Crema in 1871 and died in Quarna in 1950.
The interwoven textures of Brass and Sterling Silver express our homage to Sig. Casanova.

Saxophone sonority

The geometry of the saxophone tube is undoubtedly the crucial parameter for determining the sound of an instrument. We at Rampone & Cazzani have had ample opportunity to study and carefully analyze a large number of the best saxophones ever made. The conclusions that we have reached are based on our analyses and we study to this day … the past fuels the present and gives birth to the future.

Our studies have led us to the conclusion that a wide bore saxophone, enhances depth as well as warmth of sound. It is these characteristics which have led players to compare our horns with the Great Vintage Saxes of the past. Our “sound” distinguishes our horns from everything that is being produced elsewhere today.

The freedom to choose

We have allowed our emotions to mingle with experimental rigor … the result has been a freedom and the achievement of a harmonic unity.

In order to pursue our sonic ideal we have developed a number of operations which we believe make achievement of our goals more possible. The wooden mallet is used liberally to “work” the metal. It is then pulled over steel forms followed by an annealing process.

Our choice of metals whether Brass, Bronze, Copper or Solid Sterling Silver encourages a luxurious vibration and as much sonic freedom as possible.
The choice of metal is up to the player. His/her taste must dictate which in the palette of tonal colors is preferred.

Quality - a family heritage

Located in Quarna Sotto, a village high above Lago d’Orta in the North Italian Piedmont region, the Zolla family has continued a long tradition of building wind instruments of great quality. Their determination is to build an instrument which will allow the performing artist the freedom to express his/her musical emotions beautifully.

A constant search for perfection …

A FASCINATION WITH SOUND …We are passionately engaged in the manufacture of a hand-crafted saxophone with a unique sonic character having great complexity, flexibility and distinction.

THE CRAFTMAN'S TOUCH …The search for sonic perfection stimulates creativity and innovation. We are constantly engaged in the nature of the relationship between metals and sonics and understand quite clearly that the slightest of details may not be neglected.

A MUSICIAN'S NEEDS …We offer a wide range of saxophones … from Sopranino to Baritone as well as the more exotic semi-curved soprano (Saxello), the Altello and the Saxellino.
