            My dad plays this instrument and it sounds amazing. He describes it as very open and the keys are extremely playable. If he is impressed with it, I think anyone will be who picks on up.

                Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

                SO I've been shopping for a Baritone Sax for awhile now, came across this beauty. I was a little leery at first due to the price, but after laying my hands on this beauty I knew I had to have it! Right away I felt the quality that I had hoped for in a high-end brass instrument, smooth playing and just a classic tone that really cuts through in my rehearsals. The yellow brass was recommended to me, and I can see why, just a beautiful tone and look on this beauty. I am absolutely thrilled with the performance of this Jean Baptiste so far, and I can't see that changing anytime soon!

                  Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

                  The Jean Baptiste bari is a very free blowing responsive horn. Great intonation and tone, especially in the lower register. Comes with a ABS plastic case that has very durable wheels. Includes a low A and high F#. This horn is ideal for a student looking for their first bari sax or a hobbyist.

                          This horn is a great buy for the money. It responds surprisingly well, particularly in the low register, and has better intonation than one would expect for an introductory level baritone sax. The ABS hard case is a big plus! It's one of the sturdier cases in the Jean Baptiste line and the wheels make instrument transportation a breeze. I would recommend this horn to any student or band director looking to add a solid baritone saxophone to their arsenal.

                            This is an excellent choice for anyone looking to double on baritone. At under $3500, this horn is a great deal. It plays well, the intonation is solid, and it comes with a hard case with wheels. The lighter weight is also a welcome feature to a horn known for being bulky.
