Gallotone (22)
Gallotone is a South African record label. The only references to musical instruments that I have managed to find were to guitars, and that’s only because apparently John Lennon’s first guitar was a Gallotone. Go figure… However what this has to do with saxophones, well, that is anybody’s guess.

The sax seems to be a hybrid horn, in that it contains parts that look like they came from both Orsi and Rampone & Cazzani.

I had someone from Rampone & Cazzani look at these Gallotone photos, and this is what he had to say: "…some of the parts could come from our factory but again, strange…for sure most of the parts come from ORSI factory.

Maybe this is a stencil made inside ORSI factory with a different name or maybe we are in front of a sax made by a smaller company using / assembling pieces coming both from R&C and ORSI…"

These Gallotone saxophones are certainly keeping their pedigrees a tightly guarded secret.
