"Intermediate" doesn't give this Soprano Sax enough credit!

To get a one-piece straight soprano saxophone with this kind of intonation, you'd expect to pay nearly double this price! With highly-adjustable keys, quality pads and resonators, and super-fast springs, this horn sings with the best of them. It brings out the Kenny G in all soprano players! -MK9831

Plays right out of the case

I used this for playing in a pit for a musical and needed an instrument quickly as my soprano fell and bent its keys. Heather at Sam ash was excellent in getting me this horn overnight. This instrument plays just like a pro model. The intonation is great right out of the case. Plays from low Bb to high F# without effort and I used the stock mouthpiece and reed supplied.

This is an awesome soprano saxophone! I would really recommend this sax to anyone who is trying to get a very good sax! Yes, it is a little more expensive than some, but it is definitely worth it. The sound and responsiveness of the sax is amazing. This sax basically plays itself! I am staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music

Is saxophone is great!! It has a rich tone and sound. I bought It because I have played alto sax for 2 years and I wanted something new. It is a lot easier to blow than any other sax and if you can play any saxophone you can definitely play this one!!!!!!
