Description: Saxophone - Gold / Silver Plated Tenor Sax - Plays Great, Gorgeous!
This gorgeous Conductor tenor sax is silver plated inside and out, and keys are gold plated. It comes with a neck, end plug, mouthpiece, ligature, cap, cotton gloves, case and neck strap. It comes with an easy blowing, quality mouthpiece. The reach on the left hand over the palm keys, is great for smaller hands, like mine. Many new higher end tenors, are hard to play with the left hand because the palm keys get in the way. Not this one, a very nice feature. The case is a light duty hard plastic. It is good for light, non abusive use. If you do heavy gigs, bus or air travel, I recommend a heavier wood box.
The silver plate (inside and out) gives this sax a very pretty and bright sound, with a smooth light upper register. Many professionals prefer plating over lacquer, for its superior sound qualities. Most antique saxophones are plated, not lacquered. Although it is new, I have played it to adjust the tuning, cork and necks, so it plays well when it arrives at your house. I used my own reed, yours is new. I also sanitized the mouthpiece and ligature.
