Comments about e-Sax Practice Mute System for Alto Saxophone II:

I would recommend this if you dont feel like going to a sound studio or simply getting in your car and taking a drive out into the country to practice. It does work, just not as well as I would have thought after reading their advertisement. But then, marketing people do like to exaggerate a bit at times.

Would I repurchase this? Maybe, maybe not... it does work, the only thing that is really a downside is the price tag.
The features are ok, it has a metronome and a built in microphone, but that is about it. The felt is absorbent so it doesnt have a lot of condensation built up on the instrument while playing. I will comment that your hands DO get warm and sweaty from the humidity in the case.
For the price, the plastic they used is ok, it gets the job done, but I would expect it to weigh less. The thing is heavy. If you plan on using this for any length of time, do yourself a favor and get an adjustable height bar stool or something to set it on while you use it. They do not make a product specific stand for this mute, at least not at the time of this writing. The clamshell style housing doesn't always line up either when you close it, so take some extra care and make sure it is all lined up before you attempt to latch it.
Best solution I have found for the Sax, and works a LOT better than simply shoving a sock in the bell The volume is not silent when the instrument is being played, and definitely not a whisper. More like the same volume as two people holding a conversation in a room at normal volumes. It does cut the volume of the instrument a lot, The only thing I really noticed is it was a bit more difficult to play the lower notes.

    Comments about e-Sax Practice Mute System for Alto Saxophone II:

    I have a Alto Yamaha Yas62 horn. whwnever I use to play at home, my neighbour always use to bang a lot on the walls. I know he/she is getting disturb due to my playing. I completely understands that.

    After that incident, I started looking for different ways to mute my Saxophone while playing at home. First cheapest way was to play in closet but did not worked all the times because of limited space , light and ventilation.

    I tried to search a lot in internet to find a perfect product to mute saxophone but every product has it's drawback. Nothing is perfect and I was also not looking for 100% perfection.

    I came across this product and decided to buy it after seeing it's made in Japan (Both case and electronic)

    After the product arrived, I had to adjust the inner movable parts so that I can fit my Alto Saxophone.

    Afer attaching my saxophone into the case, I tried to lift it and found it's a bit heavy but I managed to keep the case on chair (in between by legs) and it worked.

    One of the drawback I wold say that the case is a bit slippery.

    This product worked very well on my Alto Saxophone. I has Aux in so that I can connect my cell phone and play karaoke tracks while I am playing. I downloaded iPhone loop software so that I can keep playing a specific part of the song, I also tried couple of other softwares to reduce the temp of the song so that I can practice.

    This case also has headphone connectors so that you can hear Karaoke Track also what you are playing. You can also add a reverb. And the most important thing is I can now play my Saxophone in the evening/night and I can also record into my computer DAW software using Aux Out connector.

    I woud recommand this product but if you have any issues with neck, consult with your doctor before using it.
