Chinese saxophone factory…

This is a promotional video, from one of the Chinese saxophone manufacturers referred to me almost daily by Alibaba.  Interestingly, it all looks quite clean and civilised.  All very clinical – but where are the component parts actually manufactured ?

I’d just love to see roaring furnaces, frantic fettling, and thundering presses…  At around 0:11 the camera quickly passes a slightly scruffy area – is that it ?  Or is the rumour true that (as most of the saxes seem to be Yani copies) the parts are usually ‘bought in’ from one of a very few parts manufacturing companies – most of the quality/value being in how well the saxes are assembled and hand-finished ?
