The new Alpha Sax is based around the original body tube of the award winning Trevor James Horn alto saxophone with completely re-designed mechanism and tone hole positioning. This ensures that TJ met the desire that the instrument looked and played like a normal alto sax.
The Alpha sax in the key of Eb, with a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. New and innovative mechanism has enabled TJ to maintain the finger positioning of a normal saxophone.
Key & Mechanism Details:
The left hand palm keys for top D#, E and F have been removed.The top D key has been adjusted to suit small hands. The low B & Bb keys have been removed. The G# and C# keys are easier to reach for smaller hands. The right hand side F# and C keys have been removed. The redesigned low D# and C keys are now easier to reach. Fully chromatic range from low C to high D. Bb bis and side Bb keys are retained.
Please Note: If you are used to a fully keyed sax (for example one of our rental Yamaha Alto Saxes) this will not be suitable for you to continue learning on due to the keywork.
