Just Fun!

25.02.2017
What more can you ask for than an instrument that brings a smile to your face? This Tenor sax is a pure delight and fun!

I am a professional woodwind instrumentalist and bought this instrument to replace a recently sold Selmer - 1937 Balanced Action Tenor, owned for 30+ years, that wasn't getting enough use to earn its keep!
As an Alto/Soprano specialist I have never been an enthusiastic tenor player and thought that the Selmer deserved to played.

This Thomann MK IV has been a revelation, I just love it! Tone, from the 92% copper body, is as warm and full as my Balanced Action, and has even an timbre across the full range, the key work, obviously inspired by the legendary Selmer MK VI with hints of the MK VII, is well positioned, intonation - totally acceptable (not as good as my Buffet Senzo and S3 Prestige altos but......) and there are screw adjusters everywhere - fantastic. The double mounting arms on low 'C', 'B' and 'Bb' keys, are a great addition and ensure a good pad/tone-hole seal. Even the supplied mouthpiece works well - although I will continue to use my Selmer Soloist for Classical work and a Otto Link Tone-edge for Jazz.

Minus points: there is a slight 'flat' spot on the bell rim (QC??) but that has no effect on the playing and, for me, the right-hand 'Eb' and 'C' little-finger keys are totally flat making a smooth slide between them a little difficult. I will give them a slight tweak (bend) if they continue to cause me a problem. The case isn't wonderful but works.

What I have discovered is that this instrument wants me to play it.... a lot. I've got out all my old jazz tenor sax transcriptions and am having fun. Isn't that what an instrument should do - inspire one to play!

It really doesn't matter what the name is engraved on the bell, be it Selmer or Thomann, an instrument is for playing and not an investment item so if it works for you - great!

Thank you Thomann, again I can only praise one of your instruments..... you have taken me back 40 years to when I aspired to be a great jazz player!

Super jug, top processed. Super sound

Wigbert, 18.09.2012
Actually, I am playing Altsax. To be exact a Selmer. Now I wanted to grow a tenor as a second instrument. On the one hand, I am very spoiled by my Selmer as regards sound. On the other hand, I did not want to spend more than 4,000 euros.

So I have times informed what it is so cheap jugs. I also went to local dealers. Under so around the 1.800 euro was there the lower limit of the offers. Wanted not only a Sax for the showcase, but should sound it. Wanted me not to be embarrassed when I change the appearance of old on tenor.

So I came to the offers of the Thonmann - Handmade Sax.

Normally I order by Thomann online. Since I wanted to play the jugs but in comparison, I bit into the said apple and took me to the almost 400 km (round trip 800 KM). The Handmade Sax is available in 4 finishes, in gold lacquer, nickel plated, made on old and in Kuper with G'goldenen flaps.
Have all kannen with a friend, plays since likewise years tenor, played.
Of course, we had a separate mouthpiece for such a comparison in order to have the same basic requirements for all jugs.
We also tested the intonation by means of a tuner.

Processing of all versions is very good. All the jugs were very tidy from the intonation. Ansrpache consistently very good. Due to the different materials the sound color changes significantly. The nickel-plated is slightly warmer and wider in sound. For me with a Yamahamundstßck with sheet 3 1/2 sheet is the sound the way I wanted it to be, from groovy to dirty.
The look is also a hammer.

The suitcase is a fabric suitcase with molded foam core and fulfills its purpose for safe transport and provides sufficient surface area for notes, etc.
Comparatively, we also played the really expensive Sax. We both agreed, for the price the handmade have a great value for money.

Only what you have to invest is a mouthpiece. The enclosed is naturally not ideal.
I also played several mouthpieces Meyer, Selmer and co. I have best managed with a Yamaha 4c with 3/1 sheetsticks.

In summary, the Handmade Sax are consistently all recommended and by far more than just school instruments. Even the more demanding player will be happy with it.

On the next occasion I will set up a link here where you can hear the Kannne live.
So all in all, I'm thrilled to be able to recommend all around.

Sax is played live, the sound is unadulterated, so no EQ etc. just a little reverb.
