Superhorn

JP2101, 01.01.2014
Have the good piece now almost 2 years and must say, the purchase has paid off and is still worth it!

Since a review of a saxophone in my opinion is often very subjective and saxophone dependent, I will describe here my experiences with the sax.

To the sound:
Can be used with the right mouthpiece for all styles.
It should be noted that not all intervals are 100% -tig - but is often a "problem" of the Reference54 Altos. This will always remain up to a certain range after the saxophone has been reset twice.

For processing:
Had to return to Thomann shortly after the purchase, since the cork at the S-bow not properly sealed - The Thomann service solved the problem ... Only annoying that something like this happens in such a price category.

Features:
The saxophone is immediately ready to play - belt, mouthpiece (Selmer Super Session E), cork grease, wiper, molded case (but only provides the necessary space for the accessories - can not place notes in the suitcase). I have added this set with a cleaning cloth and an S-bow wiper.

Others:
The paintwork takes a vintage look slowly despite normal care. Especially on the octave flap and the palmkeys the varnishing takes over with the time - is however only apparent, if one looks very exactly.

Conclusion:
A super horn, but you should also have some experience to compensate for the intonation problems.

He is still the king.

Néstor Andrés, 03.02.2014
Before buying I tried to advise myself and everyone agreed that it is the best sax in the market in general, it has everything, a clear and deep sound in all registers, tuning, easy to play and besides is nice, so friends I am delighted and convinced That the rumors about this sax are true, safe purchase that is also valued over the years.
