          Good quality construction,feels comfortable to hold,looks pretty good,but was a bit difficult to play with its mouthpiece.Tone quality of notes not as expected.This horn is good for young beginner student,but no one else.I played tenor and alto sax but quit 25 years ago.Getting back into it.Sound could be better.Thus 3 stars only.Case extras all fine.Can recommend for 14, year old,first timer.

                  Comments about Allora Student Series Alto Saxophone Model AAAS-301:

                  Five stars as a low price beginner instrument.

                  I bought this for my son to learn on in school band. I have other saxophones to compare it. This was a good instrument for my son. It plays consistently throughout the range, feels solid, intonation is good. Price was on par with renting for a year, and quality is acceptible.

                  It already survived a drop. I had to adjust the octave key slightly afterwards, and now has a dent. Construction seems solid.

                  The case feels light and cheap.

                  Seems on par with the Bundy II I learned on. Keywork is probably a little better, and metal seems a little thicker.
