OVERVIEW

A step-up alto, priced for students.

With a gorgeous lacquered body and nickel-plated keys, the Bundy BAS-300 Alto Saxophone provides the musician with a wealth of exceptional features that rival many higher priced instruments.

Bundy's history goes back to the turn of the century, but they really became the first word in student instruments in the 1960s, and were ubiquitous within school systems all across America for decades. Competition encroached on that territory, but to this day Bundy remains a price and quality leader in student instruments.

Start your beginners off the right way with a Bundy Alto Saxophone. This sax features leather pads and plastic resonators, which make for an easy and quick response with more projection. It also features a stronger bell attachment to maximize reliability and durability. Includes hardshell ABS case.

FEATURES
  • Adjustment screws on right- and left-hand keys

This was my first saxophone when I started playing eight years ago. It has been through multiple years of marching band, and has also been my primary instrument in concert band. This saxophone has held up very well under the stressful marching band conditions, and stays in tune very well compared to other saxophones when there is a drastic temperature change. For around the same price as most other beginner saxophones, this one has a better overall tone, better tuning and is much more durable.

The Bundy BAS-300 plays OK when it plays. The keys on this instrument are very soft and easily bent. The workmanship on the keywork is good but it will go out of adjustment easily. Also this horn IS NOT made by Conn-Selmer. It is a stencil horn with just the Bundy name on it. It is made in China and looks exactly like an Accent sax. Parts from an Accent will even fit on it. The pivot screws and the thumbhook directly interchange. Just know if you break something or lose a part off this saxophone, neither Conn-Selmer or WWBW will be of any help to get replacement parts. And good luck trying to get parts from Accent, I haven't had much success. They don't know anything about this sax either.

A Reliable Little Horn!

Comments about Bundy BAS-300 Student Alto Saxophone:

I've been using my old Bundy II by Selmer since I started band back in 5th grade. My mother used this same horn throughout high school and was given to me when I started band. It has survived the rigors of marching band and still plays wonderfully despite its obvious age and wear. I use a Selmer C-Star mouthpiece with Vandoren V-12 reeds.

Flimsy, easily damaged

By

Comments about Bundy BAS-300 Student Alto Saxophone:

I bought this sax for my 10-year-old son last summer, to replace the no-name rental instrument he was using, because the price was good, and because of Selmer's reputation (I've played my Mark VI tenor for 40 years). In less than a year, I've had to bring it in for repairs twice, for leaks, bent keys, etc. When it's working, it plays fine, but I wouldn't recommend it for a beginning student, because I've found it much too easily damaged. It's in the shop right now, with a bent low-C rod, a bent side Bb key, and a leaky octave key. I don't think my son is particularly rough with his sax.

A better horn

Comments about Bundy BAS-300 Student Alto Saxophone:

I bought my grandson a Bundy alto when he entered the fifth grade. I had a Selmer. I tried the Bundy before presenting it to him. I gave him the Selmer. The Bundy definitely out-performed my Selmer. Maybe I shouldn't have done it. He dropped the horn and went out for the football team.
