Thoman C Melody
Paul7215, 19.09.2015
Absolutely delighted with this instrument. Well set up, it played straight out of the box with a good sound and accurate intonation right across the range. It also looks good and seems well made. My only criticism is that the placement of the side keys is rather awkward and could make playing with small hands difficult.
Also worth noting that the included mouthpiece is really rather good (a rarity with what is quite a cheap instrument) and works very well with around a 3.5 strength reed. The instrument will also work well with an alto mouthpiece.

Lots of fun
FBGDWB, 25.07.2021
I just received this a couple of days ago but I'm already enjoying it. I've been away from sax for quite a few years. Most of the time, I play bass for seniors' jam sessions. But I thought I might take a sax along to jams if I had a C melody.
It came quickly and arrived well-packed. It looked great when I opened the case. It was set up well and I could find no reason to have it checked over by a technician.
PROS:
- fit, finish & set-up
- feels solid
- playability
CONS:
- left thumb gets sore from awkward toggling
- guard above right thumb hook digs my belly if I stand up
- mouthpiece seems like a very basic alto
I expect to have lots of fun with this horn but I doubt I'll do much performing. If I'm asked to solo, I think the control on my tenor will take me back to it. But a better mouthpiece might change my mind.

premiers essais
OlivierU, 22.01.2014
Saxophone facile d'émission sonore mais peut encore gagner du timbre avec un bec a chambre aménagée et une puissance développée avec un bec de ténor sans nuire à la justesse (j'ai utilisé un bec Laquay).
L'ergonomie n'est pas très bonne : les clés du petit doigt main gauche sont trop basses et les clés de trille Ta Tf et de mi main droite trop hautes. Instrument agréable à jouer timbre agréable et moderne.

gewöhnungsbedürftiger Kompromiss eines ausgestorbenen Instrumentes
LachenderBaum, 27.07.2020
Das C-Melody Sax ist - wenn man vorher Tenor-Saxophon gespielt hat, - auf den ersten Blick erschreckend klein. Die Handlichkeit des Instrumentes hat im Transport als auch im Spiel durchaus Vorteile.
Der Sound ist dem Tenor-Saxophon nicht allzu sehr unähnlich, man kann mit diesem Instrument ganz gut zurecht kommen.
Klappen, Verarbeitung, Ansprache - alles erst einmal in Ordnung.
Problematisch ist die Anordnung der Tasten, wie bereits schon ein paar Mal erwähnt ist das tiefe C spielbar wenn man sehr große Hände hat, der kleine Finger der rechten Hand muss sehr gestreckt werden. Auf der linken Seite kommt die Hand immer wieder versehentlich auf die Seitenklappen - das kenne ich vom Tenor-Saxophon her so gar nicht, es erzeugt immer wieder pfeifende ungewollte Töne. Das Spiel auf dem Instrument ist gewöhnungsbedürftig.
Ab dem C2 spielt das Instrument nicht immer saubere Töne, ist oft einen kleinen Tick zu tief. Möglicherweise läßt sich das durch geübtes Spiel ausgleichen. Last not least wirkt der Lack nicht schön, aber auch das ist wohl Geschmackssache, eine etwas weniger grelle Goldfarbe hätte nicht schaden können.
Der Daumenhaken läßt sich nicht verstellen oder ich wüßte zumindest nicht wie das gehen soll. Für das Spiel auf dem Instrument braucht man große Hände, die wiederum haben es schwer auf einem eher klein gehaltenen Instrument, um nicht versehentlich die falsche Klappe zu berühren. Naja.
Unterm Strich habe ich lange überlegt ob ich das Instrument zurück schicken soll und habe mich dann letztlich dagegen entschieden. Wenn man dieses Instrument spielen möchte gibt es dafür nicht allzuviele Angebote, und klanglich ist das Instrument trotz der geringen Größe weitgehend überzeugend.
