    Comments about Jean Baptiste JB686BL Baritone Saxophone:

    The Jean Baptiste 686 Bari is great for the beginning player, or for marching band and ensembles. This sax has good tone and intonation, making it easy to play. For the price this horn is a good buy for a brand new instrument with the quality this sax has.

    This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.

      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.

      Horn Holds Its Own

      By 

      from New Jersey

      Pros

      • Reliable
      • Solid
      • Useful

      Cons

      • One Notch Below Pro

      Best Uses

      • Marching Band

      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.
