Overall PRoduct`
Gowan, 03.08.2020
This is a nice novelty - especially visually. It is not, however, a horn for a serious player. The intonation is pretty terrible especially in the mid- range and the break across the octave key is incredibly vague. If you want to look unusual on stage then great: just don't record with this Alto!

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
j'ai beaucoup hésité avant d'acheter cet instrument pour son encombrement qui n'est pas négligeable.
Mais finalement je suis très satisfait de cet instrument qui présente de très nombreuses qualités :

- facilité d'émission du son sur tout le registre du sax
- une certaine profondeur du son dans les graves et un velouté qui est plus habituel avec un sax ténor ou baryton qu'un alto
- absence des problèmes mécaniques fréquents sur le registre grave des sax courbes
- un énorme potentiel au niveau de l'expressivité

j'ai travaillé 2 fois pendant 3 heures avec cet instrument et c'est vraiment un réel plaisir. je n'ai pas mis 5 étoiles car avec un peu plus de précision au niveau du mécanisme qui est déjà excellent ce serait vraiment la perfection.
Un geste appréciable est la fourniture de 2 anches thomann en plus de celle montée sur le bec.
Par ailleurs le bec fourni fonctionne bien mais j'ai préféré la profondeur de son obtenue avec mon bec qui est plus ouvert.

Pour ce qui est des défauts j'ai 2 critiques à formuler :

- L'étui est très beau et présente plusieurs compartiments pour les accessoires mais ajoute au côté massif de l'instrument et ne peut être transporté sans véhicule
- La sangle fournie est semblable à toutes celles fournies par Thomann et nécessiterait un mode d'emploi car impossible à faire fonctionner. J'utilise pour ma part une simple sangle de sac de voyage beaucoup plus simple à utiliser et à régler que celle fournie.

Je remercie beaucoup thomann pour cet instrument qui présente un rapport qualité-prix imbattable et qui est très beau. Il ne me reste plus qu'à trouver une housse de transport pour cet instrument et ce sera le bonheur parfait.

Sieht schon super aus
Black Forest Sax, 17.03.2019
Für 100% China eigentlich gar nicht so schlecht. Klingt ganz ordentlich. Fällt wahrscheinlich irgendwann auseinander .... aber sieht schon echt abgefahren aus.
