Anyone ever heard of an AKD Saxaphone?

I have an alto sax I am wanting to sell. It has the letters AKD and the numbers 9705039 engraved on it. I have searched the internet and have not been able to find any information on AKD. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Chinese
by: Damien

Maybe its not a chinese made sax, but it probably is. I have one here in my repair shop and it is a very poorly crafted instrument... also doing a Google search only turns up one entry... this one. Not a good sign as any reputable manufacturer would have some sort of marketing apparatus. I would say the sax you have is near worthless on the market. Also would not suggest donating it to anyone as it will play very poorly and cause that student to want to drop band.

AKD
by: Saxwithsoul

I have an AKD alto that I picked up several years ago because I was on a budget and needed an alto to gig with. I have a Selmer tenor and for many years had a MK VI alto. The AKD is certainly not in the same league as these,yet I found the intonation to be spot on and it speaks effortlessly top to bottom. I've been making money with it since. There is some real Chinese crap out there but I wouldn't put the AKD in that category either. Obviously, you don't want shoddy workmanship that falls apart and this horn has proved durable. The bottom line is, I can make nice sounds with ANY functioning saxophone you hand me. The comment made that an instrument such as this would cause a student to quit band is just stupid. My 5th grade daughter plays it at school and I play it at night...with a different mouthpiece of course. Hope that helps!
