The horn is all that I expected it to be at this point I just got it and it takes time to get to know what it will do and won’t do. I’m happy to have it. I’ve said it before the proof of Jean Paul being a great horn it’s difficult to find a used one. No one sells them. I’ll write something else in a few weeks.
As a jazz saxophonist, the Jean Paul saxophones ROCK ! I' m OVERJOYED and with my new ANNIVERSARY EDITION tenor silver finish with brass bell,....it feels WUNDERBAR, looks SPECTACULAR, and plays INCREDIBLY AWESOME ! 10 stars !
Booker T, saxophonist extraordinaire
I purchased the anniversary edition tenor saxophone about one month ago and I’m very satisfied with its workmanship and performance to date. The placement of the left hand high register palm keys, the smooth action of the low Bb platform, and excellent intonation throughout all registers of this horn met my expectations. In addition I find that all key spring action is consistently responsive and this tenor feels comfortable in my hands. Excellent entry and value into the pro saxophone world.
The Pro Sax is built very well from what I can see so far. Its solid, the pinky and side keys are tapered for easy finger access and the case for the sax fits and is tight (sax does not shake around in the case.)
From a playability perspective, the horn is free blowing although it does not seem to adhere to some of the standard attissimo fingerings for Tenor sax (specifically the high G and G# are driving me crazy trying to find and hit right now based on the provided mouthpiece and a 2.25 synthetic reed).
I'm not a pro player but have been playing for 4 years now so I rate this horn with very high marks for the build quality and price.
Great value for a well built horn!
