It is a kit, and needs a lot of adjustment

JAZZARAZZER, 03.04.2017
If you know about saxophones, or know someone who does, then this is good value for money. I have had mine for over a year and now it plays and sounds very good, but it needed a lot of adjustments. Firstly i lessened the spring tensions, which was very tight. Then there were many leaks which need a lot of pad adjustments, and the changing of some corks. The height of the keys needed adjustment too but there are many adjustment screws which is good.
Worst thing was that the high D was almost a 1/2 tone sharp, it was nearly Eb. This effected all the notes above it too. I had to remove the key and insert a cork crescent in the hole to lower the pitch. Lucking this worked and now the high notes are fairly accurate.
The octave arm on the neck did not work properly either as the hinge was not made properly. It still does not work as it should but i have managed to make it work good enough to play.
All in all a lot of problems, luckily im good mechanically and enjoy fixing things.
The intonation overall is pretty good now from top to bottom. The key heights are comfortable. After trying a variety of mouthpieces reeds and ligatures i have finally settled on vandoren A35 with rico plasticover reeds I am using the ligature which came with the sax and it is very nice although the finish is coming off.
The sax finish is good and is still like new, although it has not been gigged much and kept in its case a lot. It comes with a very nice case.
I have the TTS 150 also which I bought about 5 or 6 years before. The finishing quality on this was much better and far more playable on arrival. Does this show a drop in quality since then? An easy way to send out a sax that will play is to make the springs very tight, this will stop any leaks, but makes the instrument very hard to play.
So, as I said, if you know saxes or have a friend who does, then this is a good deal and can end up as good as any other alto sax, yamaha etc. If you dont then you will have to fight with this alto all the way and it will make playing difficult. So I would not recommend it for a beginner.
On the other hand maybe I just got one that had to be rushed out and so they did not do the setup but just tightened the springs and sent it out.
The high D note though is not just a matter of setup, the hole is in the wrong place. This is unforgivable as it is just a matter of measuring and doing it the same as the yanigisawa on which this is modelled.
Overall I am now happy with it and enjoy playing it every day.

Saxophone for my students

31.07.2014
This saxophone is very consistent. As a woodwind teacher i recommend this particular model as it helps my students (from primary to high school) produce a clear and easy tone both at low and high registers. It is ergonomically supportive for variable palm sizes. The build and finish are superb. I highly recommend this saxophone for all graded music endeavours and beyond!
