Comments about Allora AAAS-301 Beginner Student Alto Saxophone Bundle:
This saxophone is great for the price. I am an adult hobbyist and first-time sax player, but an experienced musician.
The sax is easy to play and sounds well. I would think any student starting out could be proud to own it.
I am an adult hobbyist playing on my own, but the sax appears to be in tune "with itself" (from note to note).
It looks great, and even 'out of the box' and without getting special reeds or anything, and with my beginning playing, has a warm tone I've noticed on some notes.
I really recommend the package I got (including the music stand, book, tuner, and care kit) - it is a great value and is giving me everything I need to start out.
The case is a bit flimsy and I'm not sure how long it will last, but it of course will protect from finish scratches/minor bumps, and has a roomy compartment for accessories while being compact.
One other thing to mention - it appears to have manufactured rubber or synthetic pads, not traditional cork pads (I'm not sure how this will go over if it needs to be repaired or pads need to be replaced.)
Incidentally, I opted for the regular, free shipping, and everything arrived in less than 2 days of my order.
