A revelation after 28 years
Dani VM - Belgium, 14.01.2020
just over 28 years ago, at the age of 24, the last Saxophone reed touched my lips, after having played the sax Tenor and Alto for about 15 years...
Now, today, January 14th 2020, I unboxed my TAS-180, assembled it, prepared and installed the reed, .... and played it like never before.
This instument plays amazingly well straight out of the box.
Sure, it is a student model, not a true professional Saxo, but nonetheless a nice and very responsive instument. A bit tough on the lower notes, but that will get better in time.
It actually brought a tear of joy to my eye, to find out that I could still play and that this relatively cheap horn sounded so good !
After drastic dental surgery last year I grew a little bit of hope that perhaps some day I would be able to play again.
And today.... I DID !!!
Just 5 days after ordering this sax on line, I had a beautiful, shiny and decent instrument that I will undoubtedly enjoy for some years to come.
THANK YOU Thomann, for bringing joy to my life at the age of (almost ) 53.

All in all this is a very nice instrument and well worth the money I have spent on it. Fun and lots of musical moments and memories from my younger years, withou breaking the bank. AWESOMENESS has a gold'ish laquer finish....

great product, good service, satisfied customer
P. Sudar, 29.01.2021
Hello friends!
I bought this saxophone online through your site after an unsuccessful purchase of a similar one from a local seller.
The saxophone is a gift for my daughter who attends elementary music school.
I have to admit that at the beginning I was a little skeptical about this way of shopping: how the transport will go, paying customs, and I have never heard of the manufacturer Thomann before (my mistake) ...
But, with your professional and kind attitude, you drove away all my dilemmas.
The saxophone arrived surprisingly quickly (although it was the holiday and New Year's season), it is well packed for transport and insured against damage.
Also (what is most important to me), my daughter and her professor are delighted with both the quality of the instrument's workmanship and the tones it produces. I'm not a musician, I'm just the dad of a musician who is in charge of support :) but I'm sure of one thing, I'll continue shopping with you in the future.
Congratulations Thomann and thank you.

Well worth it
Samidar, 24.06.2019
This is such an amazing quality instrument. My son is just beginning to learn to play and I only know the basics of instrument quality and sound. Ours shipped from Germany to Tennessee, USA in 7 regular days. It had previously been out of stock but the estimated in stock time was very accurate. The Saxophone arrived well packaged the exterior of the box looked a little dented as if someone set a box on top of it that was too heavy. However the interior box was flawless as it had been protected by the padding. It came with 2 case straps, a saxophone strap, cork grease, 3 different reeds, and a pair of white gloves. The only thing I wish were also included would be a cleaning cloth.

As for the instrument itself, it produces quite a lovely sound. All of the keys work as intended with minimal sound. While shining a light through it I checked every single key. Each key sealed well with no light leaking through. The construction of it was flawless. There were no scratches on the exterior and minimal tool marks on the interior. There was no rust or chips inside or out. I am hoping this will last quite some time as it appears to have an amazing quality.
