      Comments about Jean Baptiste 286AL Student Alto Saxophone:

      I am a teacher in the Atlanta area and recently stumbled upon this brand at the Atlanta Sam Ash. I have so many parents that can't afford to buy a nice new Yamaha (which I perfer). Instead, they end up buying a no name off the internet or something from a pawn shop/craigslist that is total junk and they don't know better. They come in needing more work then they are worth and no repair technician will even touch these no name "ebay specials" as I like to call them.
      I had the opportunity to actually play test this horn and for the money they are great!! They are very responsive, good action and pretty free blowing. I was shocked! If one can't afford a good Yamaha then this is your best option for the money. What a bargain!!!
