|Each Solid Brass body takes a whole day to make using the high-precision spark-erosion process, ensuring absolute accuracy for perfect airtightness. The rigidity and solid mass of the brass improves reed response, (especially at the bass end) and the upper-octave chambers are specially contoured to give unbelievable response in the high range. Lastly, silver plating imparts a smooth luxury finish for great looks and a pure bell-like sound.|
The Long-Life Phosphor-Bronze Reeds for the Fabulous were designed from scratch to suit the brass body's special qualities, giving the player optimum volume, tone and response. Suzuki meticulously studied the length and form of each single reed to maximize its performance and robustness.
|A Straight-alignment Slide is used for the 12-hold model and Cross-alignment Slide is used for the 16-hole. The inside of the Gold-Plated Mouthpiece (a critically important area for airtightness) is hand-finished on each Fabulous Chromatic. Gold plating gives a smooth feel to the lips and a beautiful, luxurious appearance. The precision-made slide is specially designed for smooth, quiet movement and incredible airtightness.|
Extra Thick Reedplates are used in the Fabulous to match the superlative tonal qualities of the brass body. Thick reedplates increase stability and give enhanced response to each reed. The extra rigidity of the thick reedplates allows a perfectly flat finish that adheres firmly to the body, to ensure maximum airtightness. All this adds up to feather-light reed response and a luxuriant, rich tone.
Silver-plated Coverplates finish off the elegant appearance of the Fabulous. But they are practical too, as silver-plating is well known to give optimum lubrication in the mouth, ensuring players lips don't stick while performing extended passages. Suzuki's all-new artistic design for the coverplates is also comfortable and secure to hold.

A cross-alignment slide is used for the 16-hole model, as its larger holes improve airflow to make the bass range sound more efficiently.
