Description: Bb Tenor
Manufacturer: Orsi
Stencil Name: Voss
Serial #: ?7208
Finish: Nickel plated body, silver plated keys, and a rose gold wash bell
Source: Source: Mark Wiseman, The Little Sax Shop

Note: The finish info comes from the seller.

This incredibly beautiful stencil of Orsi's pro model horn, has the most unusual finish that I have ever seen on an Orsi. I am guessing that this was a very special custom order for someone. Other Voss saxophones certainly are not even silver plated, let alone plated with multi-metals.

BTW, according to Bear at Cybersax, the "rose gold" wash effect in sax bells wasn't gold at all. It was in fact a copper plating applied to the highly polished silver plating inside the bell of saxophones, much like the gold plating applied for a yellow gold wash bell.
