    Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

    SO I've been shopping for a Baritone Sax for awhile now, came across this beauty. I was a little leery at first due to the price, but after laying my hands on this beauty I knew I had to have it! Right away I felt the quality that I had hoped for in a high-end brass instrument, smooth playing and just a classic tone that really cuts through in my rehearsals. The yellow brass was recommended to me, and I can see why, just a beautiful tone and look on this beauty. I am absolutely thrilled with the performance of this Jean Baptiste so far, and I can't see that changing anytime soon!

      Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

      The Jean Baptiste bari is a very free blowing responsive horn. Great intonation and tone, especially in the lower register. Comes with a ABS plastic case that has very durable wheels. Includes a low A and high F#. This horn is ideal for a student looking for their first bari sax or a hobbyist.

              Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

              This horn is a great buy for the money. It responds surprisingly well, particularly in the low register, and has better intonation than one would expect for an introductory level baritone sax. The ABS hard case is a big plus! It's one of the sturdier cases in the Jean Baptiste line and the wheels make instrument transportation a breeze. I would recommend this horn to any student or band director looking to add a solid baritone saxophone to their arsenal.

                This is an excellent choice for anyone looking to double on baritone. At under $3500, this horn is a great deal. It plays well, the intonation is solid, and it comes with a hard case with wheels. The lighter weight is also a welcome feature to a horn known for being bulky.

                      This is a great bari sax for anyone starting out, or for someone looking for a great backup instrument for when their sax is in the shop being serviced. It has a range from low A to high F#, heavy duty keys with leather pads and metal resonators, and even includes a wonderful hardshell case with wheels to make transporting it simple and safe. It also comes with a cleaning swab, mouthpiece, ligature, and cap. All in all, this is a great value for a baritone sax.

                        For a baritone saxophone in this price range it doesn't get much better than this. Perfect for a beginner or experienced player. Features a range from low A to high F#. Also has a three ring neck strap connector so you can adjust to your comfort.

It's very versatile with any type of music for any type of player. This is a real hands on product review from Ken at Sam Ash Music New Haven.
