A Design Concept

When Rheuben Allen started the design for the Black Diamond Series Saxophones he wanted a saxophone that the live player could use and it would offer all the things the live player needs in a saxophone. Mostly that all clubs, weddings, concerts and generally all live performances are not held in the same location so all rooms are different.



The saxophonist must adjust to the location and room size. So the qualities of the Black Nickel Plating came to mind. He still makes saxophones with Black Nickel Bodies and Silver Plating and had made a few with Gold Lacquered keys. They play very nice and are very strong. He wondered what the saxophone would sound like with all Black Nickel Plating so he made a couple Prototypes and was very happy with the results.



They do everything he had hoped. Black Nickel is very durable plating and adds a little weight to the instruments providing the saxophonist with a greater projection of sound.

A Design Concept (Cont.)

Black Nickel does not start producing the tone as fast as Lacquer or Silver Plating but can be pushed to produce a very strong projection of tone.





This line represents Lacquer and Silver plating tone projection:

Soft__________________________________________________Loud



This line represents Black Nickel tone projection:

Soft__________________________________________________________Loud



*As you can see the Black Nickel can be pushed to a louder volume.



*Once again a lot of the tone production belongs to the player, mouthpiece and reed combination.
