For the pro-player that wants to make a statement, this is your saxophone! The MAC 8 Series Saxophones, unlike any of our other series of horns, offers a larger bore, enlarged bell size, and double key arms on the low C and B keys. The result is a huge low end sound, but also one that will scream in the upper register.
MACSAX also added extra support between the bell and body, along with a special bracket for the left hand spatula. The added brace provides positive pinky finger action for fast, smooth low end fingering. The MAC 8 has rock solid ergonomics and boasts a complex, rich, full, and warm sound.
