Description: Saxophone - Soprano Saxophone - Silver Plated - New
This Concert soprano sax is silver plated inside and out, including keys. It comes with 2 necks, one straight and one curved. The straight neck is for playing more jazz or rock, and the curved one lends it self to a more classical sound. It comes with an easy blowing, quality mouthpiece, ligature, cap, reed, gloves, neck strap and case. 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, light upper register. Many professionals prefer plating over lacquer, for its superior sound qualities. The sax has better intonation than I have heard on a lot of saxes in its price range. Although it is new, I have played it to adjust the tuning, cork and necks, so it plays perfectly when it arrives at your house. I used my own reed, yours is new. I also sanitized the mouthpiece and ligature.
Generally, when you purchase an instrument, and it is shipped direct from the factory, it can arrive needing adjustments. Many people who mass market instruments over the Internet, don't even open the box to look inside, they just ship, and you are on your own.
Not me, I actually know how to play these instruments, so I can adjust it, fix it and give you a good idea of how the instrument plays and performs.
