For now, my first impressions are that the saxes look and sound fine. I took each one out and played each for about 10 minutes, playing in a variety of styles. A few of the keys are located a little off from where I'm used to (especially the octave key, more to the right), but I was able to play without any significant problems. The tone was fine, actually better than my old Bundy, especially at the lower end, but also on the high notes. So I'm satisfied with the purchase so far, though we shall see how they do over the long haul and I will update then.
I can tell they are cheaply made and some details give the impression that they were put together in a rush. Specifics:
1. Tight fitting mouthpieces. Apparently the diameter of the upper cork portion of the neck is fairly inconsistent because all four were different. One was VERY difficult to get on, even with lots of grease and keep in mind I'm not new to the sax so I was trying the usual tricks. I tore the cork a little bit in getting it on, and it required so much effort that a child definitely would not have been able to get it on at all. I left it on for a while once I got it on so it compressed the cork and that of course helped, though it will probably continue to be a little difficult to tune on an ongoing basis, especially for a kid who will likely accidentally unseat their reed in the twisting/pushing/pulling process. One of the others was difficult, though not quite as bad, and it did not tear the cork. The third was somewhat difficult, but an improvement and probably about what I would expect for the first time. The fourth was about as easy as it is to put my mouthpiece on my 30-year old bundy student sax. I think this might be a bad thing, in that once it compresses the cork some more I could see it falling off on its own or just being really loose all the time. We shall see, and like I said that is why an update in a year or two is important.
2. One of the four saxes had a bunch of what appears to be cork grease on the inside of the lower part of the neck (or crook). A bunch of cork grease. Weird because nothing touches that portion of the instrument. That part of the neck goes IN to the lower part (body) of the sax - there is no friction or connection point on the INSIDE of the neck, which is where the grease was. This was only found on one of the 4 that I bought.
3. A few pads are off-center and one (one of the right pinky finger keys) was even glued diagonally and not in the center of the "pad hole," like it was done in a big hurry. That pad causes the particular key to not open as far as it is supposed to. It rests in open position, so this means that the key that closes it is constantly depressed slightly from normal position. This should have no effect on how it plays.
4. One of the octave keys, at the top, is off center. Meaning if you try and lift it way up it actually hits the little side bars on the way up. It isn't rising at a 90 degree angle. More like 70 degrees or something. If you pull it above the sidebars (which you can do since it barely hits on the way up), then release it, it sticks on the same side bar on the way down. This is not a big deal actually because when you are playing you only use the octave key - it seldom gets lifted in this manner except by accident. But I point it out to show just the sort of little things you might notice. I am happy with the purchase so far, but this sort of stuff is why it can be sold at such a low price.
5. There are extra keys that I am not used to. Between the A# side key and the D# side key on the right hand (lower) end there are 2 more side keys, situated closer to the main 3 right hand keys. I looked online and I think they are for high f# and f# trill. Maybe these are commonplace now.
6. These things ship ready to play. They go so far as to put a reed on the mouthpiece. The reeds are 2.5 "glory" branded and I bought Rico 2.0 reeds instead for the kids to start out on. I want all the help I can get to help them make their first sound, to minimize initial discouragement.
I will try and monitor these reviews so if you have a question fire away. So far so good and I would buy them again. Don't expect the quality of a Yamaha sax, but it might be 90% as good for 1/4th the price. If my child was wanting to learn the alto sax I would strongly consider going this route, or buying a name brand horn on craigslist.
