Easily the best sax I have ever played.
I am a semi-pro musician with 40 years experience on single reed instruments.
About 5 years ago I indulged myself and bought the B9930 - with the silver plated bell and customised engraving. I believe this is the only instrument of its kind in Australia.
It speaks easily across the range, from lowest to highest notes, with no weak areas. This is an instrument which does not have to raise its voice to make itself heard.
The mechanism is well weighted, and keys fall readily to hand for my (rather short) fingers.
Would I buy another - only if this one was terminally unavailable (destroyed/stolen), but in that case definitely. The other members in the 9930 family are on my shopping list.
Is it worth the quite startling price - in my opinion definitely, if you are after the ultimate instrument and have the passion...
