Comments from customers who bought this item:
Reliable Beginners Instrument
This Alto Sax is ideal for more petite players due to its relatively light and small body which is comfortable to hold. The fact that it doesn't require too much 'puff' to produce a note and the ease in which the instrument stays in tune also make it a good choice for beginners. The combination of this instrument's size and range makes it extremely versatile and a popular choice amongst classical and jazz musicians.
Strong & Durable Body
This instrument has been designed with affordability, durability and comfort in mind. The body is fully ribbed for strength helping it stand up to the demands of regular play and transport to and from lessons. The adjustable thumb rest, bell joint and stack adjusting screws can be used to make the set-up more comfortable. The saxophone's brass body is finished with a protective vintage lacquer and polish.
Smooth Response & Tone
Blued steel springs provide a robust and durable action and give a brightness and snap to the instrument's sound whilst domed metal reflectors aid projection. The Gear4music Alto Sax has a light, free blowing response that will reward new players with excellent intonation and a stability and evenness throughout the registers. Precision drawn tone holes allow maximum air passage through the instrument without leakage or cutting of pads and an auxiliary high F# key extends the range and provides extra versatility. These features make it easy for students to start seeing results fast.
Includes Case, Strap & Reed
The Saxophone comes complete with a hard case, reed, strap and pad saver so the learner has everything they need to get started straight away and to properly care for the instrument. The included case is ideal for transporting the instrument to lessons and performances. It's durable but lightweight and is a perfect fit for the saxophone providing protection when out and about and safe storage when not in use. There's also a mouthpiece with reed and ligature plus a padsaver which is used to clean the instrument and prevent corrosive build-up.
For those just starting out, or if you're simply looking for a more complete set-up, this alto saxophone also comes in a Gear4music Alto Saxophone Complete Package which includes a number of additional accessories including music stand and reeds.

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
