Straight alto

Graham sax, 30.05.2017
Great bit of kit set up very well,good sound but brightened it up with a high baffle mouthpiece,balances on sling feels strange at first but you get used to it.if you want something different on stage get one.

Straight Alto TSA-500

Patrick961, 17.03.2017
I hesitated a lot before buying this instrument for its bulk that is not negligible.
But finally I am very satisfied with this instrument which has many qualities:

- ease of sound transmission throughout the sax register
- a certain depth of sound in the bass and a velvety which is more usual with a tenor sax or baritone than an alto
- absence of frequent mechanical problems in the low register of curved sax
- an enormous potential for expressiveness

I worked 2 times for 3 hours with this instrument and it is really a real pleasure. I did not put 5 stars because with a little more precision at the level of the mechanism that is already excellent it would really be perfection.
An appreciable gesture is the supply of 2 reeds thomann in addition to that mounted on the beak.
Besides the beak provided works well but I preferred the depth of sound obtained with my beak which is more open.

As for the faults I have 2 criticisms:

- The case is very beautiful and has several compartments for accessories but adds to the solid side of the instrument and can not be transported without vehicle
- The supplied strap is similar to all the ones provided by Thomann and would require a manual as it is impossible to operate. I use a simple travel bag strap much simpler to use and adjust than the one provided.

I thank thomann very much for this instrument which presents an unbeatable value and that is very beautiful. All I have to do is find a carrying case for this instrument and it will be perfect happiness.
