Intermediate Alto Saxophone

Best for Beginners to Intermediate

I just bought a 2nd one because it's just that good. The upgraded mouthpiece has been wonderful for both of my sons, which came standard with the silver package. It has allowed them to focus more on the keys instead of struggling with trying to blow. (Beginners that quit usually do so because they can't blow well and then get discourage.) This mouthpiece has allowed them to play confidently from the very start and has made all of the difference.

The sax itself sounds beautiful and has a nice, rich tone. It also looks beautiful with its silver plating and mother-of-pearl keys, which really makes it stand out.

A disappointment

I received an AS400 as a birthday present. The tone of the instrument was fantastic even with the low end mouthpiece. However the low D and below notes were all very flat by 15+ cents. The sax also had a few sticky keys. I also noticed that the lower key guard was scuffed as if it had been used. I contacted Jean Paul support and they said that it was normal to have sticky keys. They said they didn't reship returned items so they didn't know how the key guard got scuffed and could I take a picture for them. They requested that I schedule a Zoom call with a tech to investigate the flat notes. While getting the sax set up for pictures I also noticed some plier marks on the same key guard and that the side F key was bent. That was enough for me so I just returned the instrument. I assume that vast majority of AS400s are high quality but mine was not.

Sorry to hear about the missed expectations Jeff! You're covered by the 1-yr warranty, so let us know if you'd like and we can exchange the instrument for a new one.

Great value

This saxophone can play in tune with no issues, and didn’t have any pads with leaks. It had two sticky pads but I was able to easily fix that. The case is high quality and the saxophone doesn’t move around when in the case. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Nice saxo to start with.
