I bought this Alto 2 years ago and i have to admit that even though its no Cannonball or Giardinelli, it is still a pretty good alto. First, this thing can take one of the biggest beatings i have ever seen. Mine has been stepped on, dropped, rammed into other instruments, rained on, dented, scratched, not cleaned for five months, and never been to the shop, and yet, it still plays like the day i bought it. This thing is a beast. But there are some little, minor problems with it. The glue holding on the corks where the metal rods meet the body can fall off because of the weak glue or they may break in half sometimes. Also, the case, which seems good at first, just falls apart. The little E.M. Winston label fell off in a month (weak glue again), the hinges do not align right, and now, the little lip on the top part is eating the bottom part away. Also, its made of flimsy wood, which is why i gave the value 5 stars. Other than these little setbacks, it is a good alto for intermediate players, but not realy for pros who need a sax that can go a long time, without falling apart.
I bought this horn in black for my son, who has been playing for 3 years now. When we first got it in May, everything was fine, but when school started up again in the fall, the black paint started coming off! This is of course after the 45 day return policy. E.M. Winston is dragging their feet on getting a replacement for us. Brass was never meant to be painted! Buyer beware! I was told by a reliable source that this kind of instrument is considered "throw away"! Hmmm, I don't know about anyone else, but I cannot afford to throw away THIS MUCH MONEY!!
Great sax, anything anyone would want in an alto.
