We bought this for our son but unfortunately he only used it once.
Teacher approved, Mendini saxophones are the perfect instruments for the student musicians and a great addition to any level players. The large bore makes it easy for young players to get a great, full bodied sound and the fast action keys allow for easy playability for all players. The tone is deep and rich with even intonation throughout the full range. Each instrument is assembled with over 300 hand crafted parts that are all made exclusively by Cecilio. There are no off the shelf parts. Every saxophone is play tested at Cecilio's factory and re-tested at their Los Angeles distribution center to ensure that their high quality standards are met. This is why thousands of instructors have approved these saxophones. Package includes: a plush lined nylon covered hard case with backpack strap and zippered pocket, a neck strap, a mouthpiece with reed and cap, a polishing cloth, cleaning rod, and a pair of white gloves to keep your instruments spot free when being played.
