          Comments about Etude EAS-100 Student Alto Saxophone with Accessory Pack:

          I bought this for my 11 year old son who played clarinet in band last year and wanted to try the saxophone in band this year. When I told the instructor at the music store where he took lessons that I had purchase this model (I had a Yamaha YAS26 previously) he told me to take it back and get a rental because it would probably fall apart and they would not be able to get parts for it.

          He was right. Two of the keys fell apart within the first week and there are slight problems with the pads which alter the sound of the low notes. I would recommend either getting a rental which can be insured and repaired at the music store, or moving up to a slightly higher end model.

          I am returning it and renting either a Conn or Selmer at the music store to avoid this problem in the future.

            I had doubts, but after speaking with an expert at Musician's friend. It inspired me to go ahead and buy my sons instrument. I'm very happy with the information I received. The best was the package deal they had was excellent. I couldn't have done it without you. I very glad I found and have recommend you to other parents that can't afford the prices given to us by our local music stores. Thanks a Million!

              My daughter just took up the saxophone and this was by far the best saxophone out there for a student. It is durable, good quality, and a great financial value.

                I bought this saxophone for my 10 yo daughter. She's in her 1st year school band. Was renting a saxophone for most of this year. Should have bought this sooner and saved money. This is a great started saxophone. It looks great and my daughter loves playing it. It seems well built to me.

                    Comments about Etude EAS-100 Student Alto Saxophone with Accessory Pack:

                    This sax is perfect for a beginning band student. I bought it for my 6th grade son.
                    It has a nice tone, it looks beautiful and is of good quality. It was approved by my son's Band Instructor,except for the mouthpiece which she reccommended we replace.
                    The mouthpiece is very poor quality. It was difficult to play with and it affected the sound quality.
                    I highly reccommend that you order a different mouthpiece when purchasing this sax. We went with the Yamaha 5c mouthpiece and Yamaha ligature which made a major difference in my son's ease of playing and his overall tone.
                    The accessory pack has everything that you need to get your Band student started. The music stand is light weight but sturdy and has arms to hold the sheet music in place,which is a nice touch!
