Alfredo Santoni, Fabio Somaini and Luigi Bulgheroni were the principals in
the Ditta Giglio (“Lily Company”) in the city of Parè, in the province of
Como, in the Lombardy region of Italy.
Most of the available information out there about Santoni and
Ditta Giglio is on
my blog. If you have any additional information you'd like to share,
please drop me a line at email@example.com.
I'm going to categorize these horns after the saxophones they look like:
"DA" and "SDA," for the Buffet Dynaction and SuperDynaction (respectively)
and R. Malerne instruments. The only name I've found that could be
considered a model name is "Mogar."
You might notice that I'm posting a few horns in here that are actively for sale.
I'm doing that for a few folks that have been long-time contributors here.
The standard disclaimer applies: they're not my horns, I don't claim they're good or they're in perfect shape, etc.
If you want to list your horn, e-mail me at thesaxinfo-at-gmail.com and we might be able to work something out.
