Thomann MK III Handmade Tenor Sax

Natasha, 05.08.2013
I love this instrument. It looks beautiful and it plays really easily. the only issue I had with it is the finish which looked a bit rough and unfinished in parts. However with a bit of metal polish I was slowly and carefully able to improve this a bit ( had to be careful I didn't remove too much of the lacker) but the end result, after a few hours of work is a Sax that almost appears to be made of dark wood that plays really easily in both registers, has a beautiful, full tone and isn't too heavy to hold. I sold my Selmer to afford the Thomann MK II and I don't regret it. Worth every cent!

Good Sxofon for a good price

Romain aus Luxemburg, 28.06.2014
I bought this saxophone for my wife because she immediately fell in love with this instrument. Visually, the Mk III is a force. Can one make a saxophone more beautiful ?. Really a feast for the eyes.

Sound:
The sound is good, in the low positions you can easily play to the bottom note. Is no problem also in the higher locations. Only minus point, the sound is sometimes not warm enough, especially in the very deep or higher positions. In the center position, the saxophone is perfect.
Folding system:
The folding system is hard-mounted. You get your fingers crossed quickly and the flaps are not as smooth as with a really expensive saxophone. With the laying on of the fingers, you can clearly hear the closing and feel it also in the fingers. I think after a long time the thumbs and fingers got used to it.
Mouthpiece:
I have played this saxophone with a Vandoren T45 and an Optimum leaf screw, whereby one can produce a very good sound, rocking or soft or soft as Ben Webster eg. But you have to be an experienced player.
Conclusion:
I can recommend this saxophone in brass bands or dance music like jazz or big bands.
For classical music I would advise, as the sound but not enough depth in the lower and upper positions.
For 995 euros one has an absolute eye-catcher and a well-functioning instrument, if one does not screw his personal requirements too high. Highly recommended.
