This alto saxophone is the perfect instrument for the price-conscious beginner. It features an easy response and great intonation as well as sturdy and reliable keywork. The gold-lacquered surface provides a warm and round sound. An extensive accessories package rounds off this instrument and includes a cleaning rod, shoulder strap, mouthpiece and a light case.
This sax is from the low range of prices, and in some ways it shows. The overall sound isnt bad, but the seals, especially in the smaller keys might develop leaks after a year or so.
Id recommend changing the mouthpiece and strap from the start.
On a positive note, all the springs and tension wires are of good quality and havent buckled.
Keeps tune well, well-balanced.
Overall price/quality ratio is good, though Id perhaps recommend this one to beginners only.
for begginers like me, i bought this one, and comparing price vs good instrument, was a good choice. you might have to change the "boquilha" and the "palheta" (its spelled in portuguese, sorry dont know the name in english), cause you have to blow very hard to get a sound, so, its better change for one more softer, not to everyone but at least for me was difficult, i like the sound of it, cant complain of that, and the color, since is not a shinny gold one, but a little "bronzed" so to say.
I bought for my child it and I like it, Also I like that the price is low and the SAX is ok for beginning. When my little saxophonist will be a professional I'll buy an expensive one.
