This soprano sax plays extremely well and its quailty is amazing, especially for the price.
My dad, a clarinet player, bought one of these used for himself. When it came, the rods and keys were warped and the instrument was not playable. Musician's Friend agreed to send him another one. It came, and the keys were all ok. So as my dad went to play it, he thought he was about to play a good-sounding, easy playing sax. Nope. it played just about as well as the first one. He asked me, an experienced tenor sax player, to try it out to make sure it wasn't just his newness to soprano sax. It wasn't. I couldn't get any note below low E out without blowing really, really, really hard. And I'm a tenor player - I'm used to playing low! Also it sounded very thin in the top of the upper register. Most of the notes on the instrument were completely off pitch. So we sent that one back and got another one. The third one was even worse than the second one. So we sent it back for good and got a vintage "Chu" Berry Conn Alto from 1925 from our local music store. Don't let this discourage you from doing business with Musician's Friend - I've bought many a fine instrument from this site. Just try to save up for a better soprano than this, that's all.
