        Looks fantastic and plays like a dream.

        The stunningly beautiful Giardinelli 812 Series Black Nickel Alto Saxophone is a professional-quality sax crafted in Europe to Giardinelli specifications. The proof, of course, is in the playing, and this Giardinelli saxophone plays amazingly well.

        The Giardinelli 812 alto sax' body, bell, and neck are made of German nickel silver, plated with black nickel, and elaborately hand engraved. The black nickel plating on the 812 saxophone body gives it added richness.

        Keys are silver-plated with black pearl buttons. The neck has been specifically selected to match the Giardinelli 812 saxophone's sonic characteristics. Other features include an adjustable right-hand thumb hook; double key arms for low C, B, and Bb keys; articulated low C# key; tilting low Bb spatula; leather pads with metal tone boosters.

        The Giardinelli 812 black nickel sax is a superb professional instrument that is priced to make it a remarkable value for such fine quality. A great alto saxophone for a great price!

        Constant compliments

        Comments about Giardinelli 812 Series Black Nickel Alto Saxophone:

        I have been playing the horn for a little over 3 years. I get constant compliments about its sound and appearance. It is a little rough on the low notes, but otherwise a fantastic horn.

        Comments about Giardinelli 812 Series Black Nickel Alto Saxophone:

        It's a little "wobbly" on the low notes, but other than that I love the horn. I get constant compliments on its appearance and sound.

        Highly Disappointed

        By SaxlessOnceAgain

        from Atlanta, GA

        Comments about Giardinelli 812 Series Black Nickel Alto Saxophone:

        I was extremely excited when I received this sax today, but after ten minutes of playing it, one of the black pearl buttons fell off. Additionally, the color is more of a dark gray that black like the pictures shown. I will be returning it tomorrow morning.
