You can play with it

Marmara, 02.01.2010
The Startone SAS-75 is available with case at a price, which is usually spent on a suitcase. But the STARTONE SAS-75 is actually an instrument, even if you would expect the price rather a toy.

In the price ratio I would give full 5 stars. Without consideration of the price 3 stars. Mouthpiece and neck strap I take from the evaluation and consider them as free Provisiorien, which must be replaced by products of their own choice.

The processing is useful, but not a masterpiece. This is the way the key inserts look after what they are, just plastic. One can see here and there a few glue residues. The flaps close, the mechanism works and is sufficiently light-weight. Altogether, the beginner has a real saxophone in his hand.


The included mouthpiece I understand as provisional, as a free addon and therefore do not evaluate it. You should combine the saxophone with a mouthpiece of the personal choice, because you can improve the sound decisively for a relatively low price.

The approach of the supplied mouthpiece is good for a provisional and is enough to try out. However, the instrument disrupts quickly with this mouthpiece. As customer service, there is a lack of information on suitable mouthpieces.

As an alternative, Thomann could have added a good entry-point for 30 euros more. If the user wants another, however, this money would be invested. Without the provisional device, on the other hand, one could not even test the instrument. Therefore, the provisional arrangement is a good compromise which does not justify a point deduction.

My tip to Thomann: Use the online sales system and offer a selection of suitable mouthpieces as bundles and test the ordered mouthpiece before the delivery in the workshop for accuracy.

Neck strap:

In the same way one must understand the neck strap only as a free provisional.


The plastic case is of a reasonable quality.


Wipes and brushes are worth mentioning.

To buy you have to be at least S-bow wiper, cork fat, bite, screwdriver, tuning fork, thumbscrews. These little things should have been given, since they in the single purchase disproportionate extra costs cause. You could save yourself the cheap white cotton gloves size S.

More expensive accessories such as leaves, leaf-case, stand, music stand, metronome, sax-school etc. will be selected by the user. They are consequently not there.

All in all, you have to charge 100 to 200 euros for accessories, depending on the personal prefarities.

Great instrument for beginners

PhilipG, 14.10.2010
First of all, it should be said that my rating is also seen in terms of value for money. In this area, the Sartone SAS-75 convinced me completely.

First to the address:
As is the case with an entry-level instrument, the Startone is very nice and easy to play, it is possible to play one or the other sound immediately. From the speech, the Startone can also keep up with more expensive entry-level models.

Here I honestly expected something more, I also think that you could have a few euro more, good accessories could have delivered.

The mouthpiece is absolutely unsuitable for prolonged use. It is really worth it from the very beginning to put on a decent brand mouthpiece. The supplied sheet in thickness 2.5 is also unsuitable for the beginner. For beginners it is hardly possible to force out sounds. It would probably be better to supply a thinner sheet (thickness 1 - 1.5), since the Startone SAS-75 is now a pure beginner instrument.
The suitcase is well processed, here I see no defects, it protects the instrument well.
The supplied "microfiber cloth" or what this shred is also to be, helps with the cleaning of the instrument hardly, the white gloves are likewise completely useless.
Here you have to spend a few euros for S-Bogenwischer etc.

The sound is very good for an instrument of this price class. The thing really sounds like a saxophone, and it's fun to play with.

Even in the processing I see no major weaknesses. All the mechanics work perfectly, the instrument is good, here and there a few small glue can be recognized, but again, for this price, something is not important.

All in all, who would like to start playing the saxophone and do not want to spend 800 - 1000 euro for an entry-level instru- ment will enjoy the Startone SAS-75 very much.
The only drawback are the sparse accessories, here one, as mentioned above, still buy a lot. A nice instrument for beginners.
