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.

Google quality for a very good price

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.

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.

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.:)
