Step up to the the next generation of JEAN BAPTISTE SAXOPHONES!

The latest in the line of Jean Baptiste saxophones, the 686TL is a remarkably sturdy yet gracefully playing student tenor sax.  This deluxe Eb alto sax features a new neck design for improved intonation as well as redesigned key support arms and height adjustment screws. The 686TL is outfited with leather pads and metal resonators giving this horn a full sound with great projection; and 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 technicque.  The high F# key gives this horn the full range that many student instruments lack, while stainless steel springs provide quick responsive action giving this horn very reliable articulation.

The Jean Baptiste 686TL comes with a deluxe lightweight hard foam case as well as a strap and mouthpiece providing everything a player needs to start practicing right away.

    Comments about Jean Baptiste 686TL Deluxe Tenor Saxophone Outfit (Assorted Finishes):

    I bought this saxophone at a Sam Ash store where I was planning to buy a Conn 10M. Instead I bought this Jean Baptiste (I should have bought the 10M). This saxophone immediately caught my eye due to its stunning looks. I played it and it was very free blowing and ergonomic. The tone quality was decent and the construction pretty good. In the end, I bought it because I liked its feel and how it played. I ended up playing it on a tuner at my house and the intonation was absolutely awful! The lower register would go almost 25 cents flat while the higher register went 25 cents sharp. Overall, this is a good saxophone for a beginner or intermediate player looking for something to start off on.
