I am an adult intermediate saxophone player. I have owned this saxophone for about a week, playing it every day. Price was a primary consideration in this purchase. For a basic student model, it seems so far to be a good value. It plays in pitch throughout its expected range and has a nice enough tone that I am unlikely to spend two or three times as much on a higher end model to get the results I want. I especially like the fullness of the tone I get at the bottom of the range on this horn -- this may be helped by my experience playing tenor (a professional model). I added a slightly better Selmer mouthpiece and a Rovner dark ligature and am using 2 1/2 Rico reeds to this alto setup. I have not used the mouthpiece or ligature that came with the saxophone. This saxophone comes with a plastic shell case, mouthpiece, ligature, and one reed. This being my first student model saxophone, I will be monitoring its durability -- how well it remains in good repair and good tone with frequent use over time. I ordered this Allora alto because I have owned an Allora intermediate curved saxophone for about a year and like it very much -- also purchased through this store. My customer experience with this store is consistently good, with helpful representatives, easy order tracking, and responsive assistance when I need it.
