Comments about Allora Chicago Jazz Tenor Saxophone:

There are many fine professional grade saxophones on the market from Selmer, Yanagasawa, Yamaha and others, but they are pricey. If your budget doesn't allow the purchase of one, the Allora is a great choice. It's workmanship, tone and appearance are on a par with the expensive makes, and it's price is far less.

Comments about Allora Chicago Jazz Tenor Saxophone:

This sax is well built however it's not comfortable to play if you have small hands. The tone is nice and dark for jazz, church etc. The lacquer job was not good which in my opinion made this horn look cheap, and I didn't like the hardshell case it came with. There's not enough room for strap, reeds and mouthpiece. However if looks is not a problem it's a very good product for the money.

Poor Quality Control

Pros

  • Beautiful On The Outside

Cons

  • Leaks Throughout

Best Uses

    Comments about Allora Chicago Jazz Tenor Saxophone:

    Tried two, one demo, one new. Sent both back. The demo had several leaks but found a flaw in the C# tone hole edge which had a gap that the pads could not seal. The second one which was brand new had several leaks out of the box. I also found that the left hand "D" palm key seemed too low. I kept hitting the "Eb" palm key while trying to press the "D" palm key. That is an ergonomic issue that I don't like. It's a beautiful horn but I would not recommend the the investment. If you can't afford the cost of a new horn or a vintage Selmer Mark VI (which I am not impressed with)...save some money and get yourself a Conn 10m from the 1950's through the mid 1960's without the "naked lady" engraving or rolled tone holes. They play very well and in my opinion sound better than many of the newer horns that cost much more. I have a new Yanagisawa T-991 which I do like very much and it came delivered from the factory with no leaks and to this day still has no leaks. I got it at a good price but now they are out of reach for many aspiring players. Stay away from these "cheap" imports that look good but do not deliver.
