Después de buscar mucho en sitios Web encontré Jean Paul con muchas referencia buenas respecto al AS-400. Luego al ver reviews sobre AS-860 y especialmente los comentarios honestos de Mr. Wally Walace de Saxophone Academy, decidí preguntar por el Alto AS-860 Pro. Al día siguiente Tim Zenderman, me dio los antecedentes que diferenciaban ambos modelos. Al llegar mi encargo , me bastó abrir la maleta para sorprenderme. Probé en todos los registros y resulta una maravilla para el precio. Ahora solo cambié la boquilla y la caña por mi Vandoren AL3 y Legere para sonar en mi estilo preferido. Gracias al Equipo de Jean Paul USA por el excelente trabajo!!!
In my many years of playing saxophones I've bought quite a few and lugged them around the world a few times. I expect that I will lug this one to Europe this summer, and I expect that I will check out their professional soprano real soon.
The intonation, responsiveness, and mechanics of this horn at this price are crazy to me. After having tried selmers yamahas and eastmans, Id say Jean-Paul gives the highest value per dollar spent by far. The customer service has also been super great, my emails got responded to rapidly and they have zoom technicians under warranty.
This is my third Jean Paul horn and I discovered them by accident. I needed a horn quickly after selling my Pro model Cannonball Alto and Tenor because of relocation expenses. I found the Jean Paul on Amazon for 350.00 used. After I received it I was blown away and it became my main Alto up until about two weeks ago. I was so impressed with the intermediate used version that I was going to buy a brand new one. But after talking to Tim he told me I might like the Pro model. I didn't know they had a Pro model. So I did some research and several guys on Youtube gave it raving reviews. So I got the horn and once I played the first note I knew there was a huge difference from the intermediate model. Free blowing, Louder, Keywork set up is much better. I actually will have to undo the two years of playing on the intermediate and get used to the Pro layout. I've been practicing everyday and my fingers are finally starting to settle in. With any horn regardless of the model or make there is always a breaking in period. To say the least I LOVE this horn! So much so that I bought the Pro Straight soprano. Still working out my set up on that but once I feel comfortable with it I'll review it as well. JEAN PAUL is my secret weapon. I actually did a gig with another alto player and he was playing a Selmer Mark VI. Before he knew what I was playing he asked me what was I playing. I told him my secret weapon a Jean Paul intermediate.(this was before the pro model) He said it sounded great and he was blown away by the way it sounded. If you are thinking about getting a horn from Jean Paul you won't be disappointed at all with either Pro or Intermediate, and the customer service is probably one of the best in any service oriented business to date. Thank you Tim and Jean Paul Company. Oh BTW I'll also be purchasing the Tenor to complete the family.
