Nice horn

Newbie to sax. I think it will be a fine instrument for learning!

Excellent instrument + Value

I'm primarily a clarinet player, but I played saxophone 3 years in college jazz band. Was looking for a cheap second-hand instrument when I came across Saxologic's review of the instrument, and I'm wowed at the quality of instrument that was delivered. It has really good intonation across the instrument, especially when crossing the break, which is generally an issue I've had with student saxes. The tone is remarkably even as well going up to altissimo. I'm running a classical setup, and the instrument seems perfectly fine for that purpose. Considering that it's cheaper than a majority of student saxes and plays as well or better than many intermediate saxes— it's a 100% recommendation from me!

Beat my expectations

My son just started playing saxophone. We are renting to own a Yamaha Yas 200. I wanted to get back into playing again but his saxophone did not work for me since I last played a Selmer Mark VII. I messed up 24 years ago and sold that. I had looked at several reviews for these Jean Paul saxophones and I decided to pull the trigger. I bought the silver plated instrument and was very impressed with the speed of shipment and the quality of the packaging. When I opened the case I was awed at the pristine beauty of the saxophone. I immediately started playing it. I was impressed with the ease of play, the action of the keys, and once I got my old chops back, the sound quality from top to bottom. It is not my old Mark VII but it is much better than my son's Yamaha beginner saxophone which costs $1,300 used. I will soon be buying another of these, the laquered brass, for my son. I am so impressed that I am sure we will be getting a tenor within the next year or two, maybe a baritone eventually. I just wish Jean Paul would sell a straight soprano. In the end I am extremely impressed with the quality of this saxophone and would have no problem playing it in a semi-peofessional jazz ensemble like I used to.

Happy to hear you're enjoying the alto Jason! Re: Soprano - Stay tuned, we've got something coming very very soon (before BF). :)

Good saxophone

I've bought 2 as400 saxes, and 1 tenor, the tenor got stolen on delivery. So I can't do a loved these. I played for 12 years in elementary through high school / college. This sax plays e perfectly in tune. Very easy to play, low and high. I have Parkinson's, so it's difficult to move, even I sound good with this sax

Why buy from Jean Paul?

$1,500 for a student horn? Not anymore. High quality instruments at radically lower prices. That's our promise.
