Michael1163, 22.01.2016
This saxophone is a really great instrument. The workmanship is very good. The flaps have a pleasant resistance and are easy to reach. Of course the Sax - like most others - is clearly oriented on the Selmer Mark VI and also in Selmer Mark VII and SA. If you like these Selmer models from handling, you should take a look at the Thomann MK IV. You will be surprised.

The high copper content of the body ensures a slightly warmer and more cohesive sound compared to other alloys. But, of course, you can not make any general statements about sound and speech, because that depends heavily on the mouthpiece used, the leaflet, and not least the play of the saxophonist. With the right combination, which can be a little different for each player, both will be perfect.

Two things could be judged as bad, if one is very picky:
1.) The supplied mouthpiece may be difficult to play. The width of the track is rather narrow. I recommend to anyone who is testing the instrument also try a mouthpiece with a wider track. Of course, this also depends on the player. If it does not give the desired result right away, try other mow-ups and, of course, leaflets. This is a beginner's tip, I know!
2.) The saxophone is hard for an old one. But you get a top processing and a high-quality alloy.

I did not negatively influence the two points just mentioned, because it is clear to every saxophonist that included mouthpieces are always somewhere a compromise and one must choose his own suitable mouthpiece and, of course, because a higher weight, which is made of a Quality material, should not be negative. That would be quite unfair.

I gave the saxophone three professionals from the region to test their opinions. All three were enthusiastic. I recommend to anyone who has the opportunity and interest to go to Thomann and try the saxophone.

Finally, I would like to emphasize the following: My very good valuation is not based on the low price of the instrument! The saxophone is simply very good and not only because it is relatively cheap. Pay attention, for example, to specific processing details. Double braces on large flaps are one of many quality features. They prevent the large flaps from bending and then possibly not closing properly.

I would like to ask Thomann to continue with this quality and the demand for saxophones. I am absolutely sure that you will see more and more people playing Thomann in the future. If my next saxophone is due, I will look at the MK IV tenor in any case.

A Sax to fall in love with

02.02.2017
I have only played tenor saxophone and wanted to have an old one. Then I have thinned everything at Thomann and I have hit upon the Thomann MK IV handmade. After a while, I realized that this is exactly what I'm looking for.
The saxophone is delivered in a high-quality case, which can also be worn on the back which I found very handy. In addition, he has a lot of pockets to store something. The saxophone makes optically quite what from the fact that it for the most part made of copper, it has a nice reddish tone and the flaps as well as the mechanics are made of brass which creates a nice contrast. Playing the saxophone was a poem since the sound was awesome and the allusion was easy. You have to say that it has a very warm sound. The supplied mouthpiece also makes all sorts of hands, it seems to have a middle opening and is also easy to play. It was supplied by Thomann once a Reed of the strength 2 and the strength 1,5, these played itself also wonderful however I prefer the Vandoren V16 Reeds personally.

In conclusion, I can only say that this saxophone in this price class probably has hardly any competition and would recommend it immediately to anyone who would like to play alto saxophone or already plays.
