I will come back to Sams Adams again


I am not gifted with the music or with instrument. my son needed it a Saxophone. SamsAdams helped me out to pick the best deal and gave me a loan of $3000 dollars to cover our expenses. My son is alreay playing the Notes A,G, and B and he have not done our first payment yet. I will have 24 months to pay it all off. Thank you Sams Adams



Wish I could return it.


I wish you had the ability to return instruments. I asked for a recommendation of a saxophone (I played in middle/high school and wanted to pick it back up). I unfortunately have not had good success with this particular brand/model. The pads don't seal well, the sound quality is poor. Not what I was expecting out of a new saxophone.



I would buy this saxophone again


Narrow learning curve with this instrument and is very forgiving. Still wondering why I need to spend more money for a "better" instrument when this one seems to be doing a great job for me.



Alto 290AL


I have heard other people play this saxophone and I've gotta tell you I've been in the music industry over 40 years and this is far from being a student saxophone. the saxophone can be used as an intermediate or a semi pro. could be used on stage at any given time. It has got a good sound balance, got good high end, plays altissimo, all around good quality. I enjoy it very much and I recommend that you look into it. just overlook the student part because it is much better than that.



Happy I went with the Jean Baptiste, I love it!


I love my new sax, I appreciate that it comes with a neck strap, reed, and cleaning cloth. The case it comes in is of good quality and I love the carrying straps. This saxophone has such a beautiful sound, great deal for its quality.



I'd reccomend this!


Its so worth the price and quality!



Excellent purchase


My son is absolutely thrilled with his new Saxophone, sounds great at a fair price.



This product is great 👍


👏 awesome



This is the best investment I've ever made for my daughter!


It's my daughters first year in band and this was her choice. She absolutely loves her alto saxophone! We purchased a beginners book as well. So easy to learn and when it's easy to learn it makes it that much more fun to play. She shines her instrument all the time and plays a private little concert for her siblings. It's truly the best instrument for first time band students!



Great product


Great product- Great service- Great environment- All at a great price as well. Can't complain on this one. I have bought product back in Florida but Sam Ash did it again.
