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.



Outstanding Student Saxophone


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 Sax!


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

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 alto sax out today. Come on in and we'll let you try it for yourself!! **This is a hands-on product review from Justin @ Sam Ash, Ontario
