Excellent SAX

30.11.2016
I have two Yani saxes and I wish to compare these with TTS-150. There is very close resemblance between them but a Yani costs about 10 times as much . This TTS-150 is a really well made sax . The octave mechanism is well made and the bottom C is properly set up . Even the mouthpiece is quite good enough for a beginner and is better made than others in this price bracket .It just needed a little sanding on the tip with fine emery just to remove some flecks of plastic and it was a good as a Yamaha 4C in plastic.
I tried 2 tenors from the famous shop in York UK which even though they were B stock were completely unplayable . They were described as having been reurned form previous owners, they were in a dreadful condition. No quality control at all. Whereas this played well straight out of the box. I believe it had been set up before dispatch. Good Quality Control at Thomann.
The lacquer is a nice golden colour and is very attractive .I have tweeked it to my satisfaction and it will now play comfortably in my hands for many years. The ' pearl inlays are naturally plastic but can easily be replaced with Mother of Pearl as I have done . You can get these from Ebay. But not really essential .I have a thomann soprano sax (in bronze ) and is also an excellent instrument. I don't know how they do it for the price . I would recommend this to anyone beginner or advanced. The tone ( mostly obtained by the mouthpiece ) is really excellent. I have had great pleasure in playing this sax and it looks good too. I shall play this as well as my Yanis . Yes you can tell the difference particularly in quality of manufacture but the difference is small . These Thomann saxes are certainly worth the money and the case is good too. I cannot praise them too highly I am a complete fan. Delivery was fast as usual. WELL DONE HANS !!!!!!!!!!!! you will make a lot of people happy with this quality of product.

A great buy at this price, cheapest out there, very playable and good sound

JAZZARAZZER, 20.05.2013
Inexpensive but good quality tenor sax from thomann. For the price i recommend it highly. Nice tone, good enough intonation, nice ergonomic feel. Springs a bit tight at first so i loosened them for easier action. A little heavier than traditional sax at about 3.7kg.
Nice case, strap etc, delivered to dublin in one week for 350euro! Copy of yanagisaw 901 i think. Very well made chinese but checked and guaranteed three years by thomann.
Using a Rico Graftonite B5 mouthpiece, the best ive found. THe day i got this mouthpiece i sold my otto link tonemaster. Thats how good it is and for under 20 euro. Rico Plasticote reeds, easy to blow from crisp to smoochy and last much longer than ordinary reeds. So for under 400 euro you can be playing tenor sax. Really recommend this if you havent a lot of money and want to play tenor. Get someone to ease off the springs though or youll have very tired fingers.
Any info you want just ask.
I did this review as when i was looking for best cheap sax there were only two very sparse reviews on this so i took a chance,., It worked out well.
