My first saxophone
lazarov, 26.01.2019
That's my first saxophone and my opinion is based on that lack of experience I have. I used a baboo saxophone before and the transition to a real sax wasn't that difficult, but I had to change my embouchure considerably.

The instrument is cheap, but Thomann's quality control is good enough, so the horn came well sealed without any leaks.

I purchased a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and yes, there was a certain difference in the way it sounded, but in general I found it very hard to play the low notes on it. The highs sounded a bit muddy. I upgraded to a Selmer S80 C* which I found was a great combination for my embouchure and beginner skills. Before that I thought there was a major problem with the instrument and even had a technician examine it. According to him, the instrument was fine (for the price). This is why I bought a more expensive mouthpiece and it definitely makes a great difference in the way lows and highs sound and makes the lows easier to play.

Another "issue" was that the instrument turned to be very loud. It is much louder than a bamboo sax. I had to purchase an e-Sax mute which is more expensive than the saxophone itself, but it's worth the investment if you live in an apartment.

Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase, although it requires a bit more investment after that, but that investment depends on your situation and your embouchure.

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!

Perfect beginner/intermediate sax
06.04.2017
I bought this sax about a year ago just to own one (because they are beautiful instruments). I had never played sax or any other woodwind instruments before. I was surprised at how easy i was able to play the normal 2 and a half scales on it. It comes with a pair of Thomann reeds that are perfect for beginners. The tone is smooth throughout and the high and low notes are extremely easy to play. I use this instrument in my local jazz gigs and people compliment its tone all the time. It is an extremely beautiful instrument. If i had to cherry-pick i would say that you have to be quite gentle with it as i broke my octave key the very first week (maybe because i never used one before). Since then i did not have to have any other repairs and i have been playing it for over a year now. Great quality for value, wont find a better deal anywhere else.

A great saxophone at a low price
Oks83, 22.09.2017
Ordered a saxophone for training his son. The tool I really liked. All the valve cover does not require additional configuration. Easy blowing, comfortable to play.
