Excellent beginner saxophone
Aleksei T., 24.03.2018
Bought this after some consideration. I've been meaning to learn to play saxophone for a while, but couldn't afford one since I am not a professional musician. Then I found Startone. This sax is a branded ultra-cheap horn from China. Is this bad? No---in fact, this is its biggest advantage. While the quality of construction is not great overall (would you expect this for the asking price?) the instrument still delivers a genuine saxophone tone. What else would a beginner need? I mean, sure, this instrument will not last a lifetime, but for the price, would you really expect that? As far as the sound goes, it is fine. As far as the performance goes, it is more or less fine. So it goes like this---want a sax? Get this one and learn how to play it. Then get a more expensive one. And that's all she wrote.

Startone for starters
Adalberto, 17.06.2014
We are more than happy with the Startone SAS-75 Alto Saxophone for beginners, what I purchased a few years ago. It is a really beautiful instrument with brass body and keys and has a right intonation. The sound is great for this price category, smooth, clear and warm. I think it is better to change the original reed to a thinner one, instead of size 2,5 to 1,5 for example. Its responsiveness is fast and easy with a suitable reed and mouthpiece. Beginners can get the first true tones out of it after some lessons and experiments. The rod system works fine and is smooth-running and the whole instrument has a flawless finish. I am glad playing this excellent sax. In my view this sax is one of the best for this price on the market.

Google quality for a very good price
17.03.2017
It is probably the less expensive, but if you have never played any saxophone, it is a good start.
I could not expect such a valuable instrument for that cost.
Obviously after a couple of year you could think in moving to higher quality but playing saxophone requires time, motivation and skills that i suggest to test with thieve try level.
Overall manufacture is good, the sound quality is quite good, just a bit colder than saxophone four time more expensive. There are many features you do not even imagine are provided with the set.
The case is rigid and well protect the instrument.
The response is quite good as well, probably you need to warm it a bit to get the best one it can give you.
Support and service provide by the company it is literally outstanding. They reply to each question and in very short time.

Best alto saxophone deal for beginner
Pranshu, 26.05.2015
This is my first saxophone. I was thinking to buy a cheaper one in order to get an initial idea of playing saxophone and this worth it. My friends have some expensive saxophones and it sounds just like those. The thumb rest is very convenient as well. If you are a beginner and considering something in this price range, this should be the priority at least on thomann website. The built quality is also very good though it is not super great but with this price, it is much more than what you would expect. The quality of case is also good. This set comes with pad saver, neck strap, white gloves, cleaning cloth.

Dream come true ...
AVMP, 07.09.2017
A big Jazz fan, I've always dreamt to play the sax! This model is great to start discovering the instrument. Yes, it is not for the long run, but before investing in a (costly) sax for the long term, this model will allow you to start playing and find your own sound as well as the features & accessories you'd want for your long term instrument. ... and if that's not your objective, you'll enjoy playing your favourite tunes with this sax anyway ...

For beginners, it's passable
08.09.2014
This sax is from the low range of prices, and in some ways it shows. The overall sound isn't bad, but the seals, especially in the smaller keys might develop leaks after a year or so.

I'd recommend changing the mouthpiece and strap from the start.

On a positive note, all the springs and tension wires are of good quality and haven't buckled even after years of playing.

Cork quality in neck piece is good, no need to service it if properly maintained.

Keeps tune well.

Well-balanced.

Overall price/quality ratio is good, though I'd perhaps recommend this one to beginners only.

That's a great alto sax for the money!
I was impressed with the quality.
The mouthpiece that came with it is not very good, but a regular Yamaha 4C mouthpiece will do a great job along with some good reeds.
If you're loocking to buy a sax on a low budget I totally recomend it.

Excellent ! >>
03.09.2015
Its amazing how this low cost Sax can reach clear pitches high and low octaves ! Pretty good instrument I got it 7 months ago and I wanted to write a review after many tests and plays.
Its stable with no problems on its features or response! I would suggest to get one if you want to learn and then if you want something for a lifetime or an other type of sax pick a Selmer or Yamaha. This one can compete the Jupiters and yamaha student models and thats not only my opinion but also from 2 other sax players and instructors.
Of course when you pay less you might pay more attention to the instrument but if someone isn't paying attention to such an instrument its not worth it to get even a 5k Selmer.
Bless up.

Recommend for new players
Poksik, 23.11.2018
As a new sax player, I recommend this for new sax players, as this is not very expensive compared to other saxophones yet it is quite good in my opinion. Since I am a new player my review is possibly not accurate at all.

Starter sax
Susanna A., 03.02.2014
I am a musician. I am NOT a sax player. I bought this for a grandson who has behavioural difficulties and who keeps breaking clarinets, so I thought to change him to as sax as being more robust. Plus it is an instrument whose sexy tones I like. SO.. I don't have the expertise to judge this instrument properly. I can certainly get a tune out of it, and I think that, for a cheap instrument it has a remarkably good finish. For a playable instrument it is remarkably good value for money!

I like the startone sax, it is a cheap and a good saxophone, if you just start to play it I think it is ok, and when you progress you can buy an YAMAHA, but the sound is very good.

Great for Beginners
24.02.2017
This is a great sax for anyone looking into to learning sax for the first time. I mainly play guitar so this was a good option as i didnt want to spend too much on one. It has a nice tone if you use a good reed. It really is a good instrument though. Great to see companies bringing out reasonably priced gear for musicians that dont have much money.

Angie, 16.05.2013
I was really delighted with my purchase. It was beautiful in appearance and sounded great. My son is a beginner but was comfortable holding it and playing it. It came in a quality hard case with cleaning cloths etc. We will continue to buy our musical instruments from thomann as the quality and service are five stars!

Good for a beginner!

This saxophone is fairly good for a beginner player. It has some tuning issues on the upper register, but still worth the try for the start-up of your journey as a sax player.

Good saxophone for beginers
08.04.2017
Hi, I play now on that saxophone and it's realy good for that price. It's not for professional level. I recomend it for students/beginers. I think that for beginers is better to save some money for other next levels of their professionalism.:)
