5.0 out of 5 stars Been having fun with it 13 Oct 2010
Decided to buy this Sax after reading a review by the author of Saxophone Manual: The step-by-step guide to set-up, care and maintenance stating that it's as well built and sounds as good as Taiwanese student saxes that cost twice as much. As per his advice I also got a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, and some Rico reeds to go with it, and been using it since the beginning. Thus I can't tell anything about the original mouthpiece, but that's the point: you save so much money with this sax that you can afford to buy reputed brands' essential accessories, the mouthpiece being one of the most fundamental ingredients of good sound.
I've been learning to play from zero using Jazz Method for Saxophone (with Audio CD) for Alto Saxes. I've been progressing steadily for two months, without any hindrance from the sax. The author warns about bad saxes making certain very high or very low pitch notes impossible to play, but that hasn't happened with this one.
The accessories it comes with are a neck strap (kind of integral part of a sax, I guess. Replaced mine with a wider, neoprene strap for added comfort), a pair of white gloves and a pad saver, a device that you stick inside the sax to absorb humidity.

When you want to try to start playing an instrument you never know if you'll get bored or have to give it up, so spending lots of money in the instrument is risky. The alternative is buying a used one, but then you have the worst risk of it being worn out or with defects that you, as a novice, can't notice.
I think this sax is a great alternative. As for me, I've been having lots of fun playing it and it helps me to keep motivated to go on learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem. 23 Jun 2011
By GetzFan
I've been playing tenor for about 2 years and fancied an alto that wouldn't break the bank.
First off, speed of delivery. I ordered it on Sunday night and it was with me Tuesday lunchtime, well happy.
The sax is very robustly made and played straight out of the box. Take your time removing all those little packing wedges though.
If you're new to the sax, do yourself a BIG favour and forget the supplied mouthpiece and reed. Get a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and some quality reeds, to give yourself the best start. Saxes need you to do your bit to get the notes to come out. A good mouthpiece and decent reeds will make your progress much more enjoyable. I got my tutor to give this alto a work out and he was gob smacked at the quality for the price.
This is a little gem of an instrument, if you do your bit, you won't find it lacking. Fabulous value for money.
Now stop reading this, buy one and get practicing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality Saxophone (alto) 15 July 2009
I purchased one of these a while ago and within a week I was playing fluently. It is a fantastic saxophone for both learning and for professionals. Holds a good shine and comes with everything you need to maintain and play it. It comes with a reed installed, I still havent needed to replace it for 6 months. Capable of reaching a High F and lower notes aswell without cutting out or squeaking. Clean sound.

1.0 out of 5 stars not pleased at all 14 Jun 2011
By ss
Bought this sax last year for my 11 year old daughter after looking at all the good reviews. She is very pleased with it but six months down the lane I am regretting to have purchased it. The sax developed problems as the lower C,D E and F notes when pressed have stopped working and not producing the right pitch. Sent it back for repairs and it took 5 weeks and 3 emails and a phone call to get it back with the same problems. I am looking for a new sax as this is as good as useless.I should have spent few more pounds and bought it off high street.

4.0 out of 5 stars alto saxophone 28 July 2010
Verified Purchase
This is my first saxophone and I have to say that I am very happy with. Have nothing to compare it with but my teacher has said that it is a decent one and therefore considering the price I believe it was an excellent beginners sax. Gear4music was completely reliable and they even sent me another mouthpiece cover when I told them that mine had some problems. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that the case that it came with was not very good. One of the locks broke after a few weeks of usage but I was going to buy a travel case anyway so I have not really bothered. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cheap but quality sax.

Add something to review: I now have the sax for a few months and it has been great. Very nice sound and whoever has heard it can not believe the actual price. I definitely recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value - quality product at a good price 10 Oct 2010
Was a bit sceptical when I bought this for my son to learn on back in April because there are so many people selling sax's now(had to send one back that I bought off ebay). Months on and it has performed brilliantly and his playing has really come on well.
If you have concerns which one to buy plumb for this one, it looks great,sounds great and is more robust than some I've seen.
The shop was helpful when I phoned as well.
