Comments about MacSax Empyreal Alto Saxophone Outfit:

I owned a vintage well known alto sax that needed constant repairs. When I tried this alto I could not get over the quality of the sound and the fast action of all the keys.
The MacSax was superior to any sax made today and I tried them all.
Plus the price almost half of the well-known brands.

Comments about MacSax Empyreal Alto Saxophone Outfit:

I owned a Selmer Mark VI and tried all the new Selmer's, Yanagisawa's, Yamaha's, Keilwerth's and many others.
The MacSax horns were incredible; the sound just like a good vintage Mark VI, the key action superior than new Selmer and Yanagisawa. I sold the Mark VI for over $6,000. I had $3,000 left over to buy my wife nice jewelry. Fantastic Saxophone.
