Overview

Made out of fine metals for superior tone production, the Etude EAS-100 is the perfect instrument for starting out on the alto saxophone. The keywork, pads, and adjustment all work together to make tone production easier, more consistent, and stronger. And the bell brace and construction help make it as durable as possible. Includes case, mouthpiece, cap, and ligature.

It may be tempting to buy a "better" horn used, but saxophones are mechanically complex, and if the horn is not well regulated and set up properly, it will be extremely difficult for a student to play. It is perhaps advisable then for a new student to get an Etude EAS-100, brand new, set up perfectly, and ready to play right out of the case. It will be shiny and beautiful, and your young saxophonist will jump up and down and squeal when he or she sees it. Pride of ownership inspires practice, and practice leads to success.

Etude believes believe that price should not be a barrier to experiencing the growth and joy that comes from making music. That's why Etude offers you five of the most popular woodwind and brass instruments at an incredible price: flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, and trombone. And no matter which you choose, you get a great design and outstanding construction that will give you years of musical enjoyment. See for yourself!

Good choice

This saxo is a perfect choice to start playing or for students playing on a school band. It produces a nice clear sound and its structure makes it easy to play.

Stay away from this product. Out of the box, brand new, several of the keys did not seat properly and leaked air. Brought it back to the store and the person who helped us arranged for a return. The 'return' came, but honestly I don't believe this was a replaced item, but a repaired item. In any event, again, leaking air and a piece of cork popped off the third time in use. I'm faced now with going back to the store again! I'll be asking either for a NEW instrument or that Guitar Center pay for the cost of a professional repair.

    It's a really bad instrument , there ia always a problem with it. I bought one and it had a broken key. I returned it and bought a new one the octave key was broken . I never thought that buying a cheap instrument will be that bad !

          Comments about Etude EAS-100 Student Alto Saxophone:

          I am happy with the purchase because it does serve its purpose as a starter instrument for my son, in his schools band assembly. It was cheap, and we got what we paid for. But it would be crazy to spend a large amount of money before the child knows that he is def sure he wants to continue with the instrument. It plays and notes well, it just has an obnoxious, for lack of a better work, tone to almost each key that is played. But as I said, it is most perfect for serving the purpose in which it was intended.

            Bought for my son, 1st instrument. It was a great deal. Cheaper than renting & bought warranty in case of problems. It is easy for him to use, sounds good, & no complaints from teacher or son. Have not needed to use warranty.
