You mean like this one?The price with tax is equal to about $550 US. That puts it somewhere in between the ultra cheap models and the quality student saxes selling for just over $1000. I would be interested to read a Stephen Howard review sometime in the near future. hint, hint
Just like the one on the Yardsale here?Can't comment on recent Sakkusu horns, but I got a black touch piece alto for my stepson a few years ago, and it's been great. Despite the abuse inflicted by a teenager, it's needed no attention at all, plays fine and in tune. I paid peanuts for it, but even new they're not expensive.
Thank you for that excellent review as always. My favorite comment was:
I'm going to use that the next time I get into an argument with someone about using soft pads---with attribution, of course.There are pros and cons to using such soft pads - mostly cons, it has to be said - but they're certainly useful if the toneholes are rather less than level. The(y) don't so much seal the tonehole as smother them with a pillow.
Especially when the "typo" is still a correctly spelled word. That happens to me a lot.
