Comments about Antigua Winds SS4290 Power Bell Series Professional Bb Soprano Saxophone:
I had been looking for a good soprano to fill out my stable of saxophones and wasn't quite ready to shell out $6G. I visited the TEMA show this past february and played every soprano on the showroom floor. Some were downright dismal, others were ok, but didn't have a sound or feel that grabbed me. However, when I made it to the Antigua Winds booth they didn't have a soprano to try out. When visiting a local music store, they had one in the display case and I had to try it. First impressions, the instrument is solid and the keywork is well thought out and fit my hands nearly perfect. (I have fairly large mittens and it's hard for me to find a pair of gloves that fit comfortable much less a soprano sax.) The palm keys were even laid out nicely so I didn't have to do any body english to hit them. As far as tone, well when I started playing the thing everyone in the room stopped what they were doing to watch and listen. Comments like "d*** that thing sounds nice" were common. The tone was even throughout the instrument from top to bottom. Even when I matched overtones to the principle fingerings it was hard to tell which was the overtone or not. Next I pull out my tuner just to see if my ears were not deceiving me with the near perfect intonation I was hearing. Sure enough from the low Bb to the palm key D was pretty near dead on. Some slight adjustments had to be made above the high D, but nothing drastic.
I am not sure as to how this horn holds up in the long term, but it's build indicates it will last a while. The tone and intonation are really amazing and better than all the other horns I tried. In fact, it's probably up there with the best saxophone I've ever played. It's really a great instrument and worth every penny.
