A thundering stamp!

Stephane R., 29.05.2011
I had ordered his older brother some time before: the tenor.
I did not expect a bad surprise. As usual the parcel arrived in precise time and very well conditioned.
The main thing is to try with envy this Alto saxophone. Its presentation is very pleasant to the eye: hue, brushing and topuche in addition to the old: the octave key passed under the jar.
The sound emission is immediate. Personally I use a bes Vandoren and reeds of the same brand in 2, 5 or 3 (force).

There is no difference to "attack" a phrase in the bass, mid or high range. No pressure to assert more at the level of the column of air.
This is not only a good point in everyday life, but certainly a great instrument for a beginner to enjoy: an adult for example.
The ergonomics is very good: no need to think about it. The side keys are not hard and fall easily under the phalanges.
They are also silent in the mechanical touch.
The saxophone remains clean: the fingerprints are invisible unlike a golden varnish.
And when the saxophone returns in its case, it returns perfectly.
A beautiful and good instrument.

Unusual decor Altosax with considerable marks, but with nice antique look

Carsten S., Lahnau, 30.12.2012
This Sax I bought in August 2012 as an absolute beginner - and fortunately I was stubborn enough. Other beginners would have given up the Saxspiel.

Optically the jug is absolutely ok. This would be the only positive point.

I could not judge the sound and the sound as a beginner. After a visit to a local Sax dealer with a specialist workshop in Marburg-Cappel, as well as comparison with other Alto saxophones, one comes to a conclusion:

This saxophone has been faulty from the outset and can not be played from the factory!

Main criterion: Processing.

Adjusting screws were loose - I could do that myself. Worse is that almost all the flaps do not cover cleanly. The cork pads are sloppy glued and everywhere I had to improve, so that nothing rattles / hammered. Simply, because the things stick somewhere - just not where necessary.

My current overall impression of the Sax is clearly unsatisfactory.

If you put the Alto on the wall and still packs an LED pen you would have a nice room lamp at a high price - but you can play it very conditionally.

The resonators of the pads are already starting to rust, which indicates cheap material. The pads themselves show a clear hardening after 3 years.

I had therefore returned the saxophone within the framework of the 3-year Thomann warranty with the request for rework. After a rework in the Thomann workshop, the Alto can be played noticeably better - especially in the deep register - unfortunately, it is still too high pressure on the keys to close the doors clean. Fast and clean game is still not possible under these conditions. However, I see it positively that Thomann kulanterweise tried a repair even if this did not bring the desired effect. Possibly with this cheap old model is also not better possible.

If there have not been significant improvements in quality in the meantime, or if my Alto was only a 'montage model', I can only advise of this saxophone very urgently.

Who needs a usable saxophone, so should invest at least 800-1000 euros. For here also applies: Who buys cheap, buys twice.

In principle, I recommend to all beginners the visit with a recognized saxophone specialist in the vicinity and detailed pro play and advice.

Saxophones should only be ordered in shipping, if you already have sufficient competence to evaluate the saxophone. And, if necessary, send it back within 30 days.
