I needed a sax but didn't want to spend $1000-1500 on a "name brand" one. As I teach multiple instruments (piano, guitar, sax, flute) I wanted one I could practice on to keep up my chops. For the price this was a great deal. If you have a child who is interested in playing or even an adult- I would first rent a sax to make sure that they can play it and are going to continue learning. If in the future (years down the line) they become real good (considering music as the profession) then spend the money on a "name brand".
- Did the product fit true to size? yes
- How is the quality of the product? Top notch- all the keys work-
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Same as above
Bought this for my husband who's always wanted to learn to play the saxophone and loves the sound of a tenor. No complaints so far, just got it a month a go so I don't know about the durability yet. One thing is that I wish it came with more reeds but it really did come with everything you need to get started so not really a complaint. Everything looks great and sounds great.
