LaPlaca showcases Sax Dakota USA Artist Saxophones at Musikmesse

Sax Dakota USA tenor saxophone Peter LaPlaca announced the completion of a new artist-level line of professional alto and tenor Saxophones marketed under the brand name Sax Dakota USA. "Designed in the USA, Sax Dakota USA Saxophones are engineered and hand-built with expert craftsmanship, impeccable mechanical quality, and uncompromising beauty," stated LaPlaca. "I've always felt that greatness is rarely achieved through compromise, and that you must always meet the demands and design concepts expressed by exceptional technicians and prominent artists."
"Since 2002, I've been searching for aesthetic and engineering innovation in saxophone design and performance for alto and tenor saxophones," LaPlaca continued. "Wading my way through the morass of mediocre clones of established brands that are trading on the very same buzz words I invented 20 years ago was a disappointment. I was anxious to establish a visionary product line with fresh ideas, contemporary design, and flawless construction. I wanted something substantial with a dynamic life force of its own, evolving from good to better and eventually to excellence.
Sax Dakota USA was born several years ago when Pete La Placa was in Europe searching for clues of change in saxophone design and aesthetics. He discovered a small company that discarded tradition and engineered small but needed ergonomic improvements in key work. He also uncovered designs that were tabled due to the lack of interest of certain manufacturers. Putting these and other ideas to work, he set out to significantly alter the landscape of saxophone design with Sax Dakota.
"Conceptually, saxophones need more than just a clever metal or color finish to succeed in the market. They need improvements in key action, rod design, bell flare, neck taper, and metal alloy components. We need to look at other industries carefully to see how they continue to recognize and respond to the needs and interests of their consumers. When you're in the pro-level market as Sax Dakota is, you must offer flawless construction and incomparable aesthetic finishes. You owe that much to your customers. We have clearly defined our position in the marketplace. Our instruments are designed by professionals for professionals."
PJLA Music Sales distributes Sax Dakota USA globally along with other brands of music products which also will be on display at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2008, Hall 1.1 A41.
