Ordered for my 12 yr old son for first year band and he absolutely LOVES IT! Instrument is beautiful. Band teacher gave it the ok. Reps for local music stores were impressed. Overall VERY, VERY satisfied. Will definitely recommend.
I had to return the first instrument because of the octave key. Overstock shipped out a new instrument right away. The second instrument was pretty good quality and the sound was really great!
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 11 year old to use in his first year of band. I figured it would be cheaper then continuing to rent an instrument since he plans to take band again in 7th grade. This is a nice looking instrument and it comes in a gorgeous bag, but I've already had to have it repaired twice due to sound and key problems. Unfortunately, repairs are not cheap....at least when you rent they are covered in the rental. Hopefully we finally have it up and running for awhile; my son likes it but it definitely does not play smoothly nor is the sound the best. I will do all I can to keep it going until he finishes band next year and if he continues I will need to make a smarter investment. It is a good starter instrument and would recommend giving it a shot, but be prepared for small repairs along the way.
