My daughter loves this instrument


I purchased this instrument for my daughter because she is going to FAMU and will be apart of the band. She loves this instrument.



Great value and sound for high school player.


Bought this for my son to use throughout high school as his secondary wind instrument. He compared this with a more expensive Yamaha sax and was pleasantly surprised by the comparatively rich and deep tone. Perfect for his level of usage and his intermediate skill level.



Very good sound quality


Very good sound quality for beginner sax. A little pricey so only 4 stars.



Outstanding Tenor Saxophone


The Jean Baptiste 290TL is the beginning of a new era for the JB brand. Rivaling the mighty Yamaha TS26, the JB290TL is an affordable alternative, without sacrificing quality or sound. Perfect for the beginning player or as a secondary horn for the pro. This is a reliable and easy to play tenor sax.

Nice Sax!


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! I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music

New model!


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!! **This is a hands-on product review from Justin @ Sam Ash, Ontario




Beautiful Saxophone


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

Best FIrst Tenor


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. This is a real hands-on product review from Josh @ Sam Ash Canoga Park, CA.

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!
