Details

The Alphasax is a full sized alto saxophone with a redesigned mechanism and tone hole positioning. This new concept allows younger and smaller players to learn the saxophone when they may be 'too small' for the conventional instrument. Problematic keys and long stretches have been removed or altered, and the weight of the instrument has been reduced by 33%.

The Alphasax is perfectly suited for younger players, with all keys easily accessible and comfortably located for small hands. This particular instrument comes in gold lacquer.

Key and Mechanism Detail:
  • The left hand palm keys for top D#, E and F have been removed.
  • The top D key has been adjusted to fit small hands.
  • The low B & Bb keys have been removed.
  • Redesigned G# and low C# keys are now easier to reach.
  • The right hand side F# keys and side C key have been removed.
  • Redesigned low D# and C keys are now easier to reach.
  • The Alphasax retains a fully chromatic range from low C to high D.
  • Bb bis and side Bb keys are retained.
