Description

Alphasax – The unique saxophone for the younger and smaller player! The Alpha sax is based around the original body tube of an alto saxophone with completely redesigned mechanism and tone hole positioning for the smaller individual who would previously have been told to “wait until they got bigger” before they could learn to play the sax. Problematic keys with long finger stretch have been removed or redesigned for extra comfort. The weight has been reduced by an amazing 33%. The Alphasax in the key of Eb, with a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. New and innovative mechanism has enabled TJ to maintain the finger positioning of a normal saxophone. A lightweight (1.48kg) moulded case with backpack straps is included along with a padded neck strap, mouthpiece, cap and single screw ligature. A Vandoren reed completes the package
