I was really impressed when I received the instrument. I bought it for my Grand Nephew to finish out his Senior year in H.S. I am a professional musician for over 50 years and I am also a retired USAF Bandsmen.
The sax is in a very sturdy case that will take a lot of abuse. I played on the horn in it's full range and everything was very nice. I wasn't impressed with the mouthpiece and if the player is an intermediate musician I suggest another mouthpiece. Consult your teacher. The intonation was very good as was it's tone. There is no marching lira with it but those are cheap. You do get a very nice music stand with it in the accessory pack.
A plus is the adjustment on the articulated G#. This is a feature found only on very expensive horns. The only bad thing was a mis-adjustment on the Articulated B flat Bis key (B flat 1 and 4 fingering) A beginner is highly unlikely to use this fingering and it will not be a problem. This is a minor adjustment!!! and may have only been on this horn. Most shops wouldn't charge much to do it and maybe even nothing at all. The finish is really nice.
There is very adequate guarding on the lower keys and also a guard for the longer keys and rods.
I could find no serious fault with this instrument and the price is incredible. The pro musician might consider the Etude as a backup horn
I'm giving this alto sax 5 stars as far as STUDENT MODELS go. Right out of the sturdy & plush ABS-type carrying case, it has a beautiful looking finish and engraving around and on the bell. Smooth key action throughout all of the keys. Comfortable hand positions, w/ a slight off-set of the right hand which is very much like professional horns! The intonation is close to perfect; the exceptions are due to slight mis-alignments of soldered key posts, the spring tension and pad seating during manufacturing but nothing so far out that they can't be tweeked (particularly the chromatic F# right hand and the octave key on the neck of my horn). I have done only 3 minor spring-tension and key position adjustments to "loosen" the "feel" and action even a bit more more to please my tastes, but for a aspiring, learning musician the current action & intonation are perfect for developing the embouchure, hand & finger muscle technique.
The sax came w/ a student-sized (small facing) mouthpiece (very easy to blow) but I prefer and have purchased an Otto-Link metal 6* w/ Rovner VERSA ligature and #2 reeds and all the notes are smooth, warm, breathy and fresh. The sub-tones are surprisingly easy to blow and to die for. I am a tenor sax player of 42 yrs but wanted an alto sax for added giggles too - I could not have chosen a better student model than this ETUDE to get me into the "swing" of things (I find that I'm a much better alto player).
I knew that I was NOT going to spend a whole lot of money and realize that I would be "beating-up" the horn silly. The ETUDE EAS-100 is perfect for me and this situation AND for any level of alto saxophonist whether it's in a concert band, stage band, marching band or pit band, no band etc... Don't buy any of those "cheap & colorful" horns on e-bay! Get an ETUDE EAS-100 and immediately start enjoying beautiful saxophone tones of your own (or your child, niece, nephew etc...) IT IS WELL WORTH THE COST and then some. I'm just saying.
I bought this for my 12 year old son for his first year in band. We got it today and let me tell you it is BEAUTIFUL. I almost want to learn to play it myself. The sound is awesome and he is in love. It hasnt even been here 24 hours and he has told everyone and showed the pictures of him with it. I ordered it on Sunday and got it on Wednesday. I love the service and the speedy delivery. I cant wait to hear my son play this when he learns the notes. I recommend you buy this Sax. You wont regret it.
I bought this for my son last year when he first entered band. I didn't want to spend a lot of money in the event that he chose not to like the band. The teacher had a nerve to call it cheap, but I proved her wrong with the number of high reviews on this product! This is his second year of band and the instrument is holding up well. I bought the warranty which will repair it should anything major happen to it. I refused to lease an instrument when I could purchase one for a fraction of the price. I recommend this brand of instrument to any one looking for quality savings!
I got the Etude Alto Sax in 2009 and have used it ever since.
The saxophone is good for beginners.
It's good for students that are looking for a cheap price on an ok quality instrument. The mouthpiece that comes is nothing special but works woe the average player. As one (like myself) learns the intricacies of playing, one can upgrade to a better mouthpiece but still continue to use the Etude sax. I've had this sax for almost 5 years and it's still in good quality.
I'm a high school student and made it to my districts competition thus far (still in competition) with this sax. It's definitely worth the buy for a beginner or even intermediate.
