Bought this sax due to the really good reviews on here and have to say they're completely justified. The sax itself is absolutely stunning and something your proud to show off and when played it sounds amazing. Only thing iv found a problem is that when changing through the notes it gets stuck in the high register but i think that may just be me until i get used to it. To make sure it is me im doing what a previous buyer has said and swapping the mouthpiece over to the yamaha 4c and im also swapping the reeds over to Rico 1.5mm as iv found this make miles easier to play with when using my other instrument which is a clarinet so hopefully il find it the same with the sax ones. All in all im extremely happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this saxophone to any beginners out there looking for something abit cheaper that doesn't downgrade on style or sound :-)

I bought this based on reviews for the gold version, which I assume is essentially the same. The black and gold combination is stunning and the keys all move smoothly with no problems negotiating the break. Over all I am very pleased with the purchase, but buyers should be aware of a few points which can be improved upon.

Reed - the one supplied was attached to the mouthpiece, with no reed guard, and would only work in the middle of the range. I changed it for a Rico, which immediately improved matters.

Mouthpiece - with the new reed I could just about get all the notes but it became much easier when I changed the mouthpiece for a Yamaha 4C (about £25). I'm not an expert but this was recommended to facilitate the highest and lowest notes and the price seemed commensurate with the comparatively low cost of the saxophone. (I already had a tenor sax so was confident my technique was not at fault - otherwise it could have been off-putting.)

Strap - not as urgent for replacement as the reed and mouthpiece, but it has no padding so I would suggest either padding it yourself or getting a replacement. Younger (or other smaller) players may find the harness (over both shoulders) kind particularly useful.

There is no pull-through supplied, which I consider essential for cleaning. There is a padsaver, but not of the leading brand so I'll probably change that too - this one seems a bit too fluffy.

The case is fairly light weight and hard, so should provide ample protection.

Gear4music sent the sax on the day of the order, by ParcelForce's next working day service (I paid an extra £2 for express delivery). Unfortunately as I ordered on Friday this meant I didn't get it until Monday, but the company seems very efficient and on any other week day the delivery would have been great. I'm planning to try more of their basic starter range instruments as it seems like a good way to have a go without spending a fortune.

My Husband bought me this for my birthday as, being a child of the 80s, I've always had a yearning to play the sax! It arrived in good condition and in time for my birthday and the sax itself looks fantastic! I got the yamaha 4C mouthpiece too (on someone's review recommendation) and the sound with that and rico reeds is rich and full. case is sturdy enough to protect the intsrument while out and about but I would like to have had carrying straps as well as a handle. That is just me, though! all in all, a wonderful gift to recieve!

I woke up one morning and noticed a saxophone-shaped hole in my life, and had to buy one. This is great for a beginner and I was able to get a note out of it straight away (I've a tiny bit of experience with clarinet but am otherwise compeltely untrained.)

As recommended by other reviewers, I got a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and some Rico reeds. I also see what they mean about the strap - the adjuster buckle isn't particularly strong, so the sax tends to creep away from you while you're playing. I also got a Saxmute mute after my neighbour physically threatened me and tried to kick the door down. Saxophones are loud.

Bought this for my 8 year old son as a newbie sax. We have never held one before so putting together was a challenge. No instructions included with the sax - this was solved quickly by watching a youtube video instructions.

The case is robust and looks like it will protect the instrument well. We purchased additional reeds as recommended in previous reviews.

My son can only play a few notes still and they are not perfect so I can't comment yet on the sound/quality. BUT this sax looks amazing, the combination of black and gold is so jazzy.
