Professional Action, budget price

Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Straight Soprano Saxophone with 2 Necks:

I am mainly a tenor saxophonist, but I have always loved the sound and power of the soprano saxophone. I wanted to get a decent second. I was reviewing other sites and purchased a very generic cheap soprano (will not give the brand) and found that I got what I paid for. The soprano I purchased was offkey, the pads were not of good quality, and the action was not fluid. I went to my local music store and tried out several saxophones to include the Yamaha Z series soprano, a Selmer, and both horns had great sound and action. I was excited about everything but the price of both horns. I did some homework and found out that the Allora series saxophones were made by the same factory that produces great quality saxophones. When I went to my favorite site on the internet (WWBW.com!!!) and did a search for the Allora professional saxophones, I came across the Allora Paris Series Professional saxophone. I wanted a nickel body with Gold keys... Check I wanted high Quality Pro Pads..... Check I wanted a curved and straight neck for multiple playstyles/venues.... Check Ribbed Construction for durability... Check. Quality storage option... Check. I love hand engraved instruments (they are so beautiful and each one is unique) and this one comes with amazing craftsmanship.... Check. So this saxophone fit all of my needs, budget, neck options, pro pads, ribbed construction, and the look that I desired, so I purchased one. Results: There was a slight adjustment needed to the D key (very slight). Once that small adjustment was made, I paired this with two mouthpieces (Jody Jazz HR 7* for my curved and Jody Jazz DV 7* for the straight neck), and WOW what sound. This saxophone played as well as a Selmer or a Yamaha for the fraction of the price. I am an avid Yamaha fan, and if I had the money I would have purchased that brand for loyality, but I am glad I did not have the funds for that horn. The Allora Paris Soprano Saxophone was not only amazing in quality and sound, but also in price. Spend the extra savings on a high end mouthpiece for this exceptional instrument and you will not only have value, but a quality pro instrument that you can be proud of, but have money left over to buy you or another starving artist a dinner because you saved so much money!!

A fine sax for now

By

Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Straight Soprano Saxophone with 2 Necks:

I'm a new soprano player that usually plays tenor. I looked for a used yani or yamaha in this price range but didn't find any good deals. I thought this sax played fine right out of the box but I took it over to a music store for their opinion. They made a few adjustments and said the horn was perfectly good to learn on. I compared the stock mouthpiece against a selmer S80 C with strength 2, 2.5 and 3 vandoren blue box reeds. I consistently preferred the sound of the stock mouthpiece. It looks to have a round chamber, compared to the square one on the selmer. This sax sounds a bit thin compared to more expensive horns like the yani 901 or selmer III. I'll probably upgrade to one of those down the line. The case is soft and light, fits the horn well and seems adequate. I can fit an i-pad into the top compartment. Sheet music fits if folded in half. Overall I'm happy with it and making music.

Excellent Saxophone For the Price

By

Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Straight Soprano Saxophone with 2 Necks:

I bought this saxophone with the intention of completing a degree in music performance. Packaging was excellent. The horn is beautiful. I was concerned at first that it had a warble on the low notes like a few have mentioned. After researching the internet, I discovered a professional sax players site that stated it was imperative to push the mouthpiece in almost all the way. Since then, the warble is gone, the horn has excellent intonation and plays much like the Selmer professional models but for much less. Please note that I also have purchased a Selmer S80 mouthpiece as the stock mouthpiece is poor. This is a wonderful saxophone for the price and I love the black nickel lacquer as it is very unique.

Great Soprano

By 

from San Jose, Ca

Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Straight Soprano Saxophone with 2 Necks:

I was looking for a soprano sax that would fit my budget. I found it in the Allora, Paris Series Soprano. I play tenor as my main horn and had a soprano several years ago, but sold it. I love the soprano sound and wanted to get another. I spent a lot of time on the WWBW site and, kept looking at the Allora 806 (black nickel body, gold lacquer keys). I decided to go for it. Great decision, I was NOT disapointed. It arrived in a few days. The keys were corked, it was wrapped in heavy paper and in a plastic bag. My first impression was that the lacquer was flawless and the extensive engraving was beautiful. It plays and sounds as great as it looks. Keywork moves freely & spring action gives excellent response. I have had it 2 1/2 months now and love playing it. The tone is even, top to bottom. The two necks give it extra versatility (I prefer the straight neck). It is very well constructed and, is heavier than my old Jupiter sop. I will be upgrading the mouthpiece but the stock piece is decent. The case is great too. It is a soft case but is well padded and has plenty of storage. It has side/end handles and, it easily converts to a backpack (took it to practice on my motorcycle) and, also has a shoulder strap. My horn played excellent right out of the case. No adjustments needed. Came with cork grease, swab and neck strap (no reed but not a big deal). This is an incredible, professional level horn for a great price. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great sax that won't break the bank.

Probably would buy something better next time

By

Comments about Allora Paris Series Professional Straight Soprano Saxophone with 2 Necks:

For the price, this instrument is functional. I like the dark sound (bought the black lacquer), paired it with a Meijer G Series mouthpiece. The stock mouthpiece is pretty bright. I had to spend about an hour working on the instrument, still have a bit to do. Strengthened several springs that were weak & allowing the pads to leak. Adjusted (aka 'bent') a couple of keys into place. In particular, the 6 finger D was horribly sharp until the open key below was lowered. Still having a bit of challenge with the high register, and the low "gurgles" at times (indicating there are still some leaks for me to find). I think once I have everything worked out, this will be adequate for my needs... I am gentle with instruments, and capable of doing my own repairs. Bottom line: OK as a "doubling" instrument at a lower price, but expect to do some work on it. I wouldn't recommend this for schools, it's not durable enough.
