    Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Alto Saxophone:

    Purchased for my son who has been playing for 3 years and outgrew his student quality Bundy. This model was suggested by the repair technician at a local shop, and I'm glad we took his advice! This is a significantly better instrument without breaking the bank and should be perfect for getting him through the more advanced high school band classes. It is a beautiful instrument, and the finish really stands out against the sea of shiny brass in the rest of the band!

    Only complaint - the included mouthpiece is garbage. It is too long and therefore makes the instrument play flat. $20 replacement piece fixed the issue and now it is playing perfectly!

    Great horn at a great price!

    Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Alto Saxophone:

    Like most people I had never heard of the Allora Paris series saxophones. I bought mine (alto)as a replacement for another more expensive instrument I had to pawn a few years back. I agree with the reviews I've read here and other places online. The key to this instrument is finding the right mouthpiece/reed combination. I found this horn difficult to tune at first. It was extremely flat. I had to push the mouthpiece all the way in, with no cork showing before it would play in tune so I recommend getting plenty of cork grease. I don't recommend using the mouthpiece that comes with the horn. It warbles the low notes. Once I did find a good mouthpiece (Rousseau)with a 2.5 reed strength I was able to get the sound I was looking for. I definitely recommend the Allora Paris Series alto sax. It's a great professional level horn at a price you can't beat. It holds its own up against more expensive horns. If you're not a label queen you'll enjoy playing this horn just fine. Cheers!

    Excellent Horn

    Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Alto Saxophone:

    Decided to look at and eventually bought the Allora Paris Series Alto. Was looking not necessarily to move up but I've been playing a vintage alto. As much as I like the older feel and sound it was starting to show the wear. I looked at a number of horns that were more than twice the price of this one and have to be honest, this alto hung with them in every category. If you need to be a name dropper look at the expensive horn. If you are looking for top notch performance at a great price I would recommend you check these out. WW&BW have a liberal return policy - you'll be glad you took the time to play one of these before dropping big cash.

    It's like playing melodies on jewelry..this sax is beautiful

    Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Alto Saxophone:

    I had my Allora Paris Series Alto Black Nickel Model for 9 months before writing this review. I LIKE IT. It took a some time for me to find the right mouthpiece and reed combination. I have settled on a Claude Lakey 4*3 and Vandoren V16 2 1/2. Now I am glad to tell you this horn sounds and plays beautifully. The black nickel with the silver keys make the horn looks like it's glowing, like jewelry. The range of sounds I can get out of this horn is starting to scare me as I find I may be it's only limitation. From smooth jazz, gospel, slow ballads or a more ruff rugged sound this horn has it all. Notes: I had it nine months and I had to have the neck recorked ($20.00), but I do play a lot and it has held up otherwise. And, as I mentioned it took me a while to find the right mouth piece/reed combination. Brass horns give you a naturally brighter sound, this black nickel was too dark with some mouthpiece/reed combinations for my own taste, but someone else may like the rich dark, smoky sound on a more consistent basis than myself. I love this horn and I am glad I purchased it. Great price for a down right pretty "Pro" horn. I was worried this sax was all looks with no substance, but that's not true at all. I expect to enjoy many performances with this horn. Oh, yeah...when people see it they say...oh, that's so pretty (women), men say...I've never seen one like that before...they want to say...it's so pretty too! Lol.
