All in all a very good saxophone. It exceeded my expectations
funkysoulmate 28.09.2020
All in all a very good saxophone. It exceeded my expectations, as Thomann did with my baritone and soprano saxes.
I did need to make some adjustments, but after that it played beautifully. I’m over the moon with this little gem.
You get a lot of sax for a very fair price. As of now Thomann has never disappointed me.
I know you can get an original version for 8 times the price, but I doubt that it will play 8 times better. The original doesn't even have the adjustable palm keys!


Pro’s
• Nicely finished.
• Very good build quality. There is absolutely no play in the rods, tight as clockwork.
• Once regulated, intonation is very good.
• Ergonomics are outstanding.
• Neck fits securely and tightly in the receiver.
• Regulator screws all over the right and left hand stacks. Always nice to have those (if you know what you are doing)
• Forestone Traditional reed as a bonus. Really good reed.

Cons
• Low notes B and Bb were almost impossible to play. G# regulation screw needed half a turn clockwise to solve the issue. Easy fix. Should have been noticed during quality control.
• Cork missing on the right hand bis key. Easy to put a new one on, but shouldn’t have happened.
• Palm key Eb cork is really squishy. Probably needs replacement with a harder cork.
• Neck cork was tapered as opposed to cylindrical. Seems a common problem with most saxes.
• Not all pads are perfectly centered, but is doesn’t affect playability.
• Adjustable palm keys are fixed with in bus or torque. Hard to see. Would have been nice to have a key supplied.
• Very sticky left hand bis key. Solved with q-tip with some lighter fluid.
• The case accessory compartment is not complemented with and adequate lid. The lid of the case does not match the shape of the compartment. This results in stuff flying around onto the sax in the case because of the gap.

A good tool for the beginner as well as for amateur (a small price if necessary).
Anonymous 25.06.2016
To begin with let's say about the quality of the instrument and all accessories. Case Solid and fell to my liking. Made of leather, because keep it from scratching. The tool is not in it otstyvaet quickly in cold weather, so insulation is quite good. Native mouthpiece sounds good, I like it (but I recommend to change to something more worthwhile. In principle, as with any tool). Good valve linkage. No backlash is not observed. Everything runs like clockwork. When using the included mouthpiece and reed "Rico Royale" 2 size, the sound is more docile and jazz. With his cane, "Van Dorn" 2 size sound more restrained, classic. I recommend this tool for beginners and amateurs because of the low price, but good sound.

Best price for a good instrument
Anonymous 02.01.2017
This is a copy of the Yanagisawa 992. The left palm keys are adjustable, the elaboration is puritan, but every other is the same. The neck is a little thick, if you have an older mouthpiece (f.e. Berg Larsen metal from 1980), you will not be able to use. Yamaha C4 size is good, any smaller not really.
The voice is professional, such as a sample Thomann heard (lot depends on the mouthpiece).
This is a very good student or amateur musical instruments, at an unbeatable price.
