This is the best high school graduation present I could have imagined. I have been playing the sax since eighth grade, and was feeling a sense of loss leaving Bela (my assigned sax at school) behind. I have difficulty expressing myself in words sometimes. But, with my horn I can convey my thoughts, feelings, and emotions quite well. This sax is the ultimate, as it's ease of key mastery affords me the ability to use and explore the rich melodious sound that this instrument produces. It is truly a work of art.
