An affordable entry into the world of the soprano sax

A soprano saxophone is considered especially good for beginners if it offers a high level of sound dynamics and if it rests comfortably in your hands. The Thomann TCS-350 meets these criteria and is currently one of the most affordable Bb saxophones on the market. This saxophone makes a convincing case thanks to its balanced intonation in all registers as well as an extremely good response and a centred sound rich in overtones. The body and S-bow are made of clear-lacquered brass, while the bell and body have been refined with a subtle engraving. It comes with a lightweight case with backpack straps, a three-reed mouthpiece, a carrying strap, a cork grease stick, and a cleaning cloth.

For those first notes on the saxophone

Thanks to its stable intonation in all registers and good response, the TCS-350 is excellent as a beginner's instrument. The saxophone stands out with its curved, detachable S-bow and, in contrast to the majority of soprano saxophones, which are mostly produced in a straight shape, the TCS-350 has a curved bell. The metal resonators placed on the Italian leather pads ensure a clear and centred sound. What's more, you can achieve your desired sonic ideals with a mouthpiece that is suitable for the respective style of music. The required tuning (440 to 443 Hz) is achieved depending on the position of the mouthpiece on the S-bow.

A perfect start

A saxophone for beginners should be designed in such a way that it can be played dynamically and with good intonation in all registers. The intonation possibilities shouldn’t be too extensive, but they should not be too limited either. The TCS-350, which was specially designed for beginners and those switching from a different instrument, fulfils all of these characteristics and is therefore suitable for a successful start. Due to its curved shape, it is particularly interesting for very young saxophone enthusiasts. Anyone who wants to turn to the Bb soprano saxophone as a beginner or coming from another instrument will be making a good choice with the TCS-350 due to its convincing price-performance ratio. But this soprano saxophone can also be used as an affordable backup instrument for other woodwind players.

About Thomann wind instruments

Thomann-brand instruments, which are exclusively built by renowned manufacturers, now constitute a large part of Thomann’s product range alongside numerous big-name brands. With unbeatable price-performance ratios, Thomann wind instruments are the obvious first choice for students and beginners – and others too. The technical features and uncompromising sound quality they offer are usually reserved for much more expensive instruments found in the professional market segment.

From beginner's model to open-air instrument

Until fairly recently, it was still hard to find a beginner’s soprano sax that was both good AND affordable – but those days are thankfully over, as Thomann now offers a good solution with the TCS-350. Thanks to their pleasant playing feel and sound characteristics as well as their affordable price, Thomann saxophones have become increasingly popular in recent years. With the TCS-350, you get a solid starter model that you can use in many musical fields. This soprano saxophone is suitable for learning the instrument and can also be used as a second instrument during bad weather at open-air events.

In the spotlight: Bb soprano saxophone

The Bb soprano saxophone is part of the saxophone family, the other main members of which are the alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, and baritone saxophone. The term "soprano" stands for the vocal range. The Bb soprano saxophone is a transposing instrument, which means that a C played on this saxophone corresponds to a Bb on the piano or the guitar. The C played on a Bb soprano saxophone therefore always sounds a major second lower, meaning a c1 for the soprano saxophone is noted as a d1. This is why notes for instruments in C tuning are not compatible with Bb soprano saxophones (separate notation is available, however).

My daughter loves it
TCS-350 09.05.2020
We bought this sax for my daughter when she entered music school last
year, now she is successfully finishing her first year and she loves it. It is more than enough as a beginner instrument, very comfortable and playable for children (my daughter is 7 years old). Besides, it is really beautifully crafted, nice colour and engravings, which is not the least for a girl. The only thing that our teacher recommended to do is to buy another mouthpiece, the one that goes together with this sax is very basic.

A beginner best

I have been using more than 2 years. Easy to play and fairly good saxophone for the money.
Build was great and solid.
The tone of a soprano sounds similar to an amplified oboe.
Sounds are very good and impressive.
