Happy with it now
By Joseph Moorman
My instrument was received at the promised time, and in good condition. However it wasn't ready to perform. I adjusted the octave key which wasn't closing all the way, and tightened a few screws. This made the instrument playable. I then decided to go over the whole horn an tighten up all the screws. Then it didn't play at all. Going back over my work I found that certain linkage rods became bound by my enthusiastic attempt to improve the instrument's performance. Working each key, and inspecting the seat and release of each pad, gave clear indication of what was overly tightened.
This is now a very useable horn and I'm happy to have it at such an amazing price!
I believe these instruments being sold at such a low price are not set up. If you haven't the ability to do so, or to have a professional go over this sax, I believe you will be disappointed. Having done so myself, I could not be more pleased with my new instrument. It's a good horn. It just needs a little love to settle it in!

DONT BE FOOLED BY THE "BARGAIN"
By Amazon Customer
A decent beginner, as in first few months. With only one soprano sax standard, I tested a Yamaha soprano and i will never go back! I'm selling this sax. It's not worth it! It might be the worst soprano on the market. The lower and upper regiesters are disgusting and make you want to cringe. The pads on the instrument are extremely thick, causing a couple frequently used pads to stick. I do not want to own this sax anymore and definitely buying a Yamaha. It also significantly heavier than all sopranos. Not worth it don't waste time and money on this piece of junk.

Not Too Pleased
My son's music teacher , who is an expert saxophone player, says a spring seems to be bad in it as well as some other part that's causing jy son and tye teacher, not to get certain notes on. He said I should ship it back.
