We needed a Bass Saxophone for some symphony work in a community organization. Upon coming across this horn online, we thought we would give it a try. The reviews had been good overall, and most importantly the price was significantly less than some other leading manufacturers. It's a free blowing and easy to play horn. Superb middle and low registers. Upper takes a little work, but it doesn't take long to make this horn sing. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a good quality Bass Saxophone for the price.
