    Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

    The Jean Baptiste 686BL is by far the most affordable, high quality basic baritone saxophone on the market. Perfect for a school instrument or for someone looking for an alternative to a $6000 pricetag. Great tone, easy to play. Case with wheels offers a bit more portability than your average bari.

    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.
