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 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.
Really great horn for a beginner or even a back up horn for a more seasoned player. Really great price point for the quality of horn. Comes with a nice case as well!
I am very pleased with this purchase.
This horn is not only durable, but sounds fantastic! As a package deal, it includes nearly everything you need to pick it up and begin playing! An excellent choice for concert band beginners and advancing marchers alike. -MK9831
The Jean Baptiste 290AL is the beginning of a new era for the JB brand. Rivaling the mighty Yamaha AS26, the JB290AL 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 alto sax.
Great entry level horn. Keys are solid and the tone is great too. A really good option for the student, or even someone who needs a spare horn around the house.
Nice, clean sound. great for beginners. well made.

The Jean Baptiste 290 alto sax is an awesome saxophone. I love the fact that it is not super expensive while, actually having a pretty good sound. I would recommend this to not only beginners, but also to intermediate players. The 290 has been upgraded with the new neck that offers better overall tuning and a high F# key. It also comes with a very nice case and strap to match. Anyone would be happy to own this sax! I am staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music
