The TS-660 features reinforced braces, rods, and keys to ensure your horn isn't falling out of adjustment after bumping into the sofa. Because the more you play, the more accidents can happen...
We play-test and set up every single saxophone we ship from our Miami, FL HQ. So, your sax is ready to play, right out of the box.
No added cost for setup or anything like that. Just you and your saxophone ready to be enjoyed.
The TS-660 comes with an improved key shape in the low Eb / low C keys for easier transitions - a feature we're bringing down from our our pro line for better playability for the advancing player.
In general the Sax is a good build but some of the palm and lower keys could be more accessible to the fingers. For the money the sax is a good value and well put together. I am still getting the feel of the horn in general and getting use to the lower and palm key placement.
Sax is easy to play, has good sound, and the keys are responsive. Arrived with a spring off but was an easy fix and there was some confusion with the model number stamped on the sax. Customer service was very responsive. I also like the case.
The saxophone plays beautifully, the build quality is on par for other saxophones with the intermediate branding. If you were to buy this saxophone, you will not be disappointed by how it performs.
My main issues come with how the sax arrived. Out of the box, one of the spring steels for the side E key was out of socket and had to be put back in place. The next day, I discovered that the front F key was not in fact working as intended. I had to bend the lever behind the key in order to bring it close enough to press down the key properly.
I also did not receive a neck strap or the duster with the instrument. The cap for the duster was neatly installed in the saxophone, despite there being ample opportunity for the duster to have actually come with the sax.
Overall pleased with the instrument: the two quick repairs I had to perform were not a big hassle, but they are things to note when looking to buy a sax.
First of all, GREAT customer service. I got my instrument in 2 days. The instrument is solid instrument. I played it right away and it was in perfect condition. The x4 mouthpiece is also amazing. I like it better than my old Jumbo Java. The instrument looks great, sounds great and has a great price.
I've really enjoyed my purchase. The supplied mouthpiece fits the neck too loosely. All my other mouthpieces fit snugly. The lower octave pad was a bit sticky, taken care of. Very happy otherwise.
