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.

Tr s good sax

Alain 03, 20.09.2017
Here is a fortnight that I received this sax, very well packed, very beautiful copper and brass varnish semi mast of a beautiful effect, no play in the mechanics which can make think of a good aging.
the pads are of good quality, the mechanics is very flexible and precise and designed with many adjusting screws, which allow to precisely refine a perfect seal, which I did after a few days of use.
I had to adjust the tension of some key springs in order to have a very good balance between the keys.
This is quite normal whatever the mark.
I play this sax with a metal mouthpiece Ponzol M1 85 very easy to play, with a sound palette of interesting effect.
I am very satisfied with this purchase for a surprising quality price.
Thanks to the Thomann team, given their technical problem of shipping, delivered within 10 days, with a personalized communication of progress of my order.
