Budget Price Sax

Took me a while to get the hang of this low cost sax. Like most beginners, it was difficult to get even a sound out of this horn. Sounded mostly like a cow's f*rt!

After practising correct mouth and hand positions and lip technique, I finally was able to get some usable melodies out of this saxophone. Took a few moths.

Now what I had to do: Of course I had to buy 2,5 - 3 strength reeds. (The sax came only with one reed, soon chewed to pulp.) Also a good cleaning snake helped me to get rid of all the organic goo that invariably infests the innards. But the most important tip was (and is) to buy a good quality mouth piece. Well, a mouth piece might cost as much as the STS-75 sax, but I do not think you have to go that far. But still invest, like I did, some 40-50 euros on a decent mouth piece and you are good to go!

With my medium-sized mouth piece and good medium strength reeds I can practise easily and even record some bits and pieces in my home studio. (Simple stuff, mostly two or three tone riffs, which I used to play on the keyboard.) The Startone STS-75 is good enough for me for the foreeable future. It might not be the most mellifluous of instruments, the sound being a bit metallic, but it works with rock music (think G. Thorogood & Delaware Destroyers!).

Good for beginners

I bought this as my first saxophone and have been playing it for half a year. Quality and sound for my ears are pretty good. I think this is good saxophone for beginners. I would recommend to buy some other mouth piece with this.

startone sts-75 tenor sax
Chris602 11.11.2013
love the tenor tone sound and response
exquisitely engineered - keys, springs, rockers etc
easy and comfortable to hold
delicately and attractively finished quality superb
excellent quick/efficient delivery
most pleasantly surprised, satisfied and impressed.
quality mouthpiece and superb case with cleaning kit etc all included at great price.
very good finish/lacquer. Lever mechanisms and pads all very good - a lot of delicate effort and precise care has been put into making this instrument which shows both in its sound and looks - it is very 'playable.'
So - all in all a most pleasing experience to purchase and acquire.
V Many thanks again Thomann and Harley Benton.

Few days ago I purchased Startone STS-75 tenor sax and was very excited. I read lot of reviews but now that I got it I am not entirely sure if all those reviews are true. Startone is cheaply done at least this one I got i guess according to the price but I had to pay shipping and custom fee so it cost me little more. Lower tone holes are not covered with lacquered finish on the edges. I did not receive cleaning kit. Just white gloves. No bore brush for the saxophone. just the lid to cover it.I had to change mouthpiece.
I must say that service that Thomann provides is fantastic. They are efficient and very organized.
