Complete Step-Up Alto Sax outfit with padded case and mouthpiece!

Jean Baptiste's 686AL is a remarkably sturdy yet gracefully playing student Alto Sax. The 686AL features a new neck design for improved intonation, redesigned key support arms and height adjustment screws, and it is outfitted with leather pads and metal resonators giving this horn a full sound with great projection. Also, an improved low C response affords the player that extra kick in the low end.

Designed with the growing student in mind, an adjustable metal thumb rest allows this horn to grow with the player and remain in an ergonomically correct position for comfort and technique. The high F# key gives this horn the full range that many student instruments lack, while stainless steel springs provide quick responsive action for reliable articulation.

Outfit includes a deluxe lightweight, hard foam case, a neck strap, and a mouthpiece, providing everything a player needs to start practicing right away.

      Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686AL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

      I played two of these at the Sam Ash in Richmond. One was Black nickel and the other was standard gold lacquer. Both played equally well, and had a surprisingly good tone for such an inexpensive horn. Build quality seemed very good.

        Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686AL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

        I am a beginning student sax player and wanted something of quality and would hold up for years to come. I did a lot of research and tested many a sax from even very expensive ones and found this one for the price, feel and weight the best choice for my budget. I am a staff writer at Sam Ash Music.
