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.
I bought this really well factured tenor saxophone three week ago. I am very happy about it, it arrived very quickly at home (less than one week) with free shipping cost. I never played saxophone I this will be the first time I learn how to use it. So this is why I wanted to buy a cheap one at first. The sound it makes is really beautiful and easy to release.
Only one negative point : the mouthpiece is bad quality, so there are some notes that are difficult to produce at the right tonality. I think with a better mouthpiece it will be much easier to get the tone you want.
Very good instrument, I am not disappointed at all !
