Vintage Orsi Catalogue


In spring of 2009, I was contacted by a fellow in Europe who happened to stumble across my blog, and noticed that I had written several articles about vintage Orsi stencil horns. He was kind enough to send me PDF copies of the saxophone pages of a vintage Orsi catalogue. Unfortunately he did not know when the catalogue might have been published, but believed it might have been in the 1960s.

I converted the original PDF files to JPEGs, and offer them to you here now as an interesting look back to the days when saxophones were advertised using drawings, rather than through professionally lit photography.
