    This is a great learner instrument . I was told by a music teacher it was a very nice sax. The price was the same as the used beat up instruments I was looking at in the music stores and pawn shops . My 11 year old loves this saxophone and after a month or two plays several songs . Great buy , great sound . Very satisfied.

    My 12 year old son loves this saxophone. He says that is easy to play and the sound is very good. His music teacher is also very pleased with it. The hard case is perfect for use in school.

    My husband and I have both played saxophone since we were young… our children are starting now. This saxophone looks great, and we both tried it out and it was a nice instrument. Great price… can’t beat it!

    **Edited to add:**

    I think it important to add one vital fact I was not aware of when I purchased this instrument:

    It is a FIRST ACT-style instrument… i.e. if it breaks, you cannot fix it. You cannot even replace the pads. Research this type of instrument prior to deciding if this saxophone is for you.

    It is still working well for us, but I am wary because I would not have deliberately purchased a “throw-away” instrument. I suppose for the price, it’s still doable– even two of these is still less than most other saxes I found, but First Act (or its similar counterparts) is not generally considered a good thing amongst musicians.

    i play many insruments in my free time, in the past 20 yrs i have went through about 5 saxophones. from 50$ to 500$, from alto to tenor, all used, never had a new sax. so i saw this on musicians friend w a used price of 256, and did a quick google search for a musicans friend coupon code, and got an extra 30 off, and with a 45 day garuntee. thinking im taking a huge gamble with my time, i could not be more pleased. first thing i noticed was how easy it is to play, and how full of a sound it has. i have never sounded so good on sax. its very well built, nice wieght, all around good sax, esp for beginners. pads fit very snugg, keys respond very well, sometimes when you see lacquered sax, its not impressive at all, dull shine and cheap apperance, not the case here, this is a case of a musical instrument price going down, not the quality. i have hung out in music stores since the 80s, this quality, this price, wasnt availible even in the 90s. in my first 2 days im thrilled, will add an update in a couple of months.
    update,, still love it, so easy to play, rich full sound/ i love it!
