Nice Sax


Well made instrument, better value than renting.



At home and on the go!


I use the stand for holding my alto during practice sessions and will be used when traveling. It is very transportable when on the go.



One of my favorite


Love it!🎷



First ever sax and no regrets!


This is my first wind instrument purchase but for the price and having the name Selmer in it, I couldn't say no. The feel of the keys are a lot more comfortable and doesn't feel cheap when I compared different sax of similar level. Nevertheless, for under a thousand dollars and not experience, I'm definitely enjoying this instrument so far!



Good Saxo


Excellent sound, recommended for beginners.



The Sweet Spot for Sound and Expenditure


This student alto sax offers a versatile tone quality that helps developing players find the proper embouchure for clear tone. It uses high-end materials and classic Selmer construction to ensure quality that lasts and lasts. This is a horn that can easily take a beginner into the mid-high-school years without issue. But the real surprise is, it's less than $850 brand new!
