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

          My Saxophone player friend recommended this and my other saxophone player friend tested it when we received it. They both said this was a good saxophone. My daughter loves that it is brand new (instead of a rental) and there is a beautiful flower etched on the horn. I bought the maintenance plan in case it breaks which was my biggest worry. We have only had it for a week and she is a beginner but so far so good!

          The Sax looked great, new, and hardley a mark, but....it had 4 valve rods that were bent and the springs were disconnected. How it got through QC is beyond me, other than, there is no QC. I have yet to return the thing, but will report on the replacement when I do. Hopefully this was a one off...but I doubt it.

              Purchased a used instrument. It was sealed in a box with "inspected" tape. It arrived in unplayable condition. I took it to a local repair shop. They recommended to return it as it needed a lot of repairs. I did. I had purchased 2 new instruments previously & was satisfied but this one was unacceptable.

              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.

                      It seems to be a good sax for the beginner. A good product for the price.

                      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.
