This new baritone sax from Jean Baptiste offers a great playing horn for a very reasonable price!

The latest in the line of Jean Baptiste saxophones, the 686BL is a remarkably sturdy yet graceful intermediate bari sax. This deluxe Eb bari sax features a light, fast modern key action that facilitates the transition from smaller members of the saxophone family. Gone are the days of the old clunky, bulky bari sax that nobody wants to play. The action on this Deluxe bari invites the player to 'dig in ' and enjoy the full range of the horn. To enhance response and guarantee a reliable pad seal, the main bell keys feature double pad cup arms for increased strength. Bell keys, low C and low Eb feature height adjustable bumpers to allow optimum key height setting. The 686BL is outfitted with leather pads and metal resonators giving this horn a full sound with great projection. The octave key design is quick acting and light to the touch adding to the quick response this bari can provide.

Additional Features:

  • Adjustable thumb rest- Fits various hand sizes more comfortably
  • Adjustable, triple mount neck strap loop adds to comfort of the player
  • Includes hard case with wheels for ease of transport and maximum protection
  • Leather pads with metal resonators
  • Dual braced pad cup arms for extra strength on Low C, B, Bb, and A Keys

Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

If you're looking for a decent horn at a good cost to hold its own for your department, consider this horn. This horn performs well in a marching band/pep band setting as well as in sub-varsity band settings. Obviously, the serious bari sax player probably has a better horn; but if you're converting another sax player to baritone to fit your instrumentation needs, this horn is probably at the top of its game. Decent price for the horn.
