Our journey

I purchased my Alto from your wonderful company, it is an amazing instrument. I played a little in junior high school, about fifty eight years ago so I don't have the best skills though I know I will continue to get better.
I do plan on upgrading to your newer horn since I'm convinced, as a senior, that applying effort learning this instrument keeps you sharp and on your toes.
I spent my working life in the medical device world and the quality off your instruments is as high as our standards were.
Thanks again. Always, Michael T.

At 37 years old I e decided to learn how to play the saxophone. A bit daunting at first but the AS-400 from Jean-Paul is well above my skill level. Thank you all again for the outstanding support.

The saxaphone arrived at the time we needed it.

My child absolutely loves the feel, tone and everything about it. Hoping to use it for many many years.

Very Happy!!

Purchased this sax for our grandson and it is great!! He is really happy with it and it is perfect for him as a beginner and as he matures in his abilities. So much better than the school instrument that he first learned on, and he is very proud and pleased to have his own instrument that is so nice. Thank you!!
