Dinant – Brussels – Paris – Bruges – do you actually have four different shops?
That is not (yet) the case. The four cities represent the journey made by Adolphe Sax:
He was born in “Dinant”, grew up and developed the saxophone in “Brussels”, moved to “Paris” to provide the French army with better instruments and produced his saxophone there. In 1894, he died there, aged 79.
“Bruges” is the place where “Adolphe Sax” started his second life, when it was announced on 27 September 2012 that saxophones would once more be built under the name “Adolphe Sax & Cie”.
What is the “& Cie” in “Adolphe Sax & Cie”?
The “Cie” stands for “Compagnie” and can be freely translated to “partners”. “Adolphe Sax & Cie” was also the name of Adolphe Sax’s first company. Earlier, he worked in the firm of his father.
Are the saxophones already 100% “Made in Belgium”?
Although we are already at the stage where we can put “Made in Belgium” on our instruments, all parts are not yet made in Belgium. It’s been about sixty years since saxophones were last made here, and it takes time, research and lots of money to build everything up again. Even though no other brand makes its saxophones 100% in their own country anymore, we would like to get to this point with our own instruments.
