      This certainly is one of the finer horns I've seen as a student model. Excellent quality construction, and fantastic tone as well. One to aspire to and be inspired by.

        Comments about Jean Baptiste JB290 Student Tenor Saxophone Outfit:

        The Jean Baptiste 290 tenor sax is a very nice saxophone! When I first picked it up and started playing, the playability of it surprised me. It is very smooth when playing, and because of the upgraded neck, the intonation and overall projection of the saxophone has been heightened. It is also very affordable. I would recommend this sax to anyone!

          Comments about Jean Baptiste JB290 Student Tenor Saxophone Outfit:

          The 290 series has an upgraded neck that vastly improves tune-up over previous models. Gold on gold lacquer, an F# key (not often found on altos in this pricepoint, but so important!), nice lightweight and durable case, mouthpiece, ligature, neckstrap, reeds, cork grease and cleaning cloth are all included.

          So, if you're just interested in starting to play the saxophone, or you are a student starting your journey of playing in school bands, this is the most feature packed, great looking, great sounding, affordable tenor sax out today. I would put this tenor up against other name brand tenors at almost double the price anyday! Come on in and we'll let you try it for yourself!!

          Comments about Jean Baptiste JB290 Student Tenor Saxophone Outfit:

          This Jean Baptiste JB290 Student Tenor Saxophone Outfit plays so well, sounds so well will be a source of pride for any student working to become a better player. You really need to have the student in your family who dreams of playing the saxophone come down and play this instrument. Watch him/her fall in love with it right before your eyes. And for the price it can't be beat by any other saxophone out there. This is a real hands on review by Rick @ Sam Ash, Phoenix

                This is by far our most popular first alto horn. It sounds great. It's really versatile, and it's a really good value for the money.

                Comments about Jean Baptiste JB290 Student Tenor Saxophone Outfit:

                The revised neck on this model is great. The sound you can get is even better for such a reasonably priced sax. On top of that you get a mouthpiece and case. With the single post construction and the combined light weight you have a durable and easy to carry sax. Who can beat the value there!

                  The 290 Tenor from Jean Baptiste is just the latest in a long line of brilliant horns. This is the perfect starter for someone new to the Sax or for a seasoned player interested in moving from Alto to the Tenor family. The newly designed neck allows beginners to get superior tone without having to use a lot of air, add in the lightweight body and great hardware and you have the ideal Tenor to learn on.

                    Comments about Jean Baptiste JB290 Student Tenor Saxophone Outfit:

                    The upgraded neck on the 290 is a great improvement. This horn now sounds even better and competes with horns far more expensive. The 290 is an affordable tenor for the beginner student, or an alto player looking to expand into a different range. It comes as a complete outfit with a lightweight case and mouthpiece.
