Macsax Empyreal Alto Sax - A contemporary Saxophone Success

By 

from Los Angeles CA

Site Member

I have been playing the Empyreal Alto and Tenor Saxes exclusively for the last year and a half. Macsax and Ken Beason are responsible for the horns overseeing the specifications and setup that have lead to a contemporary pro class saxophone. I was pleased to discover many advantages to playing these horns over my vintage selmers. The horns have been setup by Ken to perfection. The horn is extremely reliable as I have been traveling with this horn for at least 80 shows on the road per year. The tone is even throughout all registers and I have never played a horn with such stable overtones which make for superior Altissimo playing. The hand position is such that I did not have any problem switching from my vintage horn. After recording numerous tracks and playing with and without microphones I am convinced that the MacSax Empyreal series is the horn of choice for me and Should be considered when shopping for a great professional model saxophone.
