TAS-150 - try to study

Udo aus E., 07.11.2009
If you believe you can buy a saxophone simply for "catalog" is already a big risk that your own expectations of the instrument are not met. The three components (with mechanics), mouthpiece and blade must be exactly matched. For example, For example, the blade is too hard in relation to the mouth opening of the mouthpiece, a beginner might believe that it is not suitable for this instrument because, despite physical exertion, it is unable to produce a reasonable sound.

Especially for beginners it is therefore of great importance that everything works perfectly. So if you want to buy a new saxophone, you have to be able to test it in the store or do it by an experienced saxophonist. This statement is particularly true for the TAS-150. I had to give myself three saxophones of this series until I came to a satisfactory result. From the first, I actually got no sound out. The second was then much better and the third was then perfect. And indeed a very good address both in depth and in height. High notes were also no problem.

The full, soft sound is unbeatable for this price class. The intonation was also right. The weight is however somewhat larger than with a representative in a higher price class. The mechanism is easy to play and the flaps lie well in the hand. Also noteworthy are the double bridges for the large flaps. This results in a larger leverage effect and thus prevents easy opening during play. Thus, the TAS-150 has features which, For example, the Yanagisawa precious mark. The included mouthpiece is sufficient for a beginner.

Resume: More saxophone than No. 3 does not need a normal person.

Optimal beginner saxophone

Carlos, 09.10.2009
For our 11 year old daughter, we were looking for a cheap but also good saxophone.

We were first advised by Thomann's friendly staff by telephone. The TAS-150 was our price-performance winner. The 30-day right of exchange allowed us to have the TAS-150 tested intensively by the experienced saxophone teacher of our subsidiary. She was immediately enthusiastic, although she hitherto recommended only much more expensive instruments.

They liked the speech, sound and processing very well. A slight fluttering of the very low notes could be placed in the specialist workshop of Thomann. The saxophone teacher will recommend the TAS-150 to other pupils.

Another tip: If possible, invest the saved money into a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and a BG L12 leaf screw. And! As the weight is slightly higher, a padded Neotech strap is recommended.
