Gifts That Are Instruments Of Their Trade/Talent.

Saxophone players can never have enough musical instruments for their talent, in this case a saxophone. High-quality saxophones are by their nature very expensive. In this list we have researched and found ones that are not too pricey and still do better than average in terms of the sound quality they produce. These would be great for practice but it is always best to save up and buy the highly-priced ones because they come with an undeniable quality that explains why they are very pricey.

1. Jean Paul AS 400 Alto Saxophone.

What better way to gift a saxophonist than giving them a brand new set of the instrument which they love very much – a saxophone. This particular saxophone is an alto sax with the Eb key and comes with the following extras – a hard case and some saxophone accessories such as a cleaning cloth and one Rico reed. It is great for a beginner to practice with.

Pros.

  • It comes with a carry case.
  • It is reasonably priced.
  • The sound quality is relatively good.
  • It is great for a beginner.

Cons.

  • The mouthpiece cap does not fit very well.
  • The reeds have been said not to be the best.

This saxophone even though intended for a sax student has been hailed by other professional saxophonists as being equally as good for them to use as a backup. We have to add though that the customer reviews on the durability, quality and sound of this saxophone has been mixed. But given that the good customer reviews at the time of writing outweighs the bad customer reviews, we’ll say that this saxophone is a great gift because the pros outweigh the cons, the price is good and its performance is certainly above average especially given its price.
