How I Make it Easy for You. I scan, scour and scrutinise the musical marketplace, looking for the best available instruments that I can obtain for you..My ability to weed out the unplayable rubbish is based on my experience of a few decades in the industry. I have been a music teacher. Since 1980, and have written more than 60 books on how to play musical instruments. More and more school bands are now featuring brightly colored instruments amongst the assembly of traditional colors. Masterpiece saxophones are a welcome addition to school bands, because they are easy to play in tune and attract more children to learning music.
What Do they Sound Like? The main feature of this model is the smoothness of the tone, due to the silver-plating applied during construction of the sax, so it's easier to blow. Another outstanding feature is that it comes with an gold plated, metal mouthpiece, in addition to the plastic one. What I notice is that the gold plated mouthpiece seems to give a faster response than the plastic.
It can take a little more air to produce the tone, but the reward is immediate in terms of a smoother transition between notes and a much easier result in the altissimo register. The gold plated mouthpiece is narrower than the plastic one, which means it will take up less space in your mouth. It uses the same size reed, so you don't need to shop for any different supplies for it. Here's a tune to show how this silver-plated Tenor sax with the gold mouthpiece is capable of producing a smooth, mellow tone, with a little bit of air around the edges, particularly suitable for a jazz style. Similar to the YTS-62S, but less than a Quarter of the Price.This saxophone has the same number of keys as the Yamaha, and other famous brands. It sounds pretty much the same, and its weight is nearly identical to the Yamaha. I'm a saxophone teacher and I hire and sell my Masterpiece brand saxophones to my students. Very rarely, I need to make a small adjustment, which involves tightening a tiny screw about 10 degrees.
This is a small price to pay for the joy and excitement of playing on a shiny, brand new instrument, bought at a budget price. You can even find cheaper saxophones than the ones I sell, but I cannot recommend them because I have no control or faith in the quality. When I first started offering saxophones for sale I bought them from several different suppliers. Some suppliers sent me saxophones that were so badly made they were unplayable. Now that I have found a reliable supplier I still check every saxophone to make sure it is playable.
Every Masterpiece saxophone is working perfectly when it leaves me. The body of this saxophone is made from genuine brass - an alloy of copper and bronze. The keys are coated with gold lacquer. One mouthpiece is made of ABS plastic. The other is gold plated brass.
2 - Plastic 4C & Gold Plated (optional). NO Packing Materials to Remove. These wedges need to be carefully removed with tweezers before playing.
The wedges are not always easy to spot. If you don't remove every one, you risk bending the keys. I remove all the wedges from every saxophone before I send it out. During transit from the factory, the last phase of seating of the pads occurs, as the pads become compressed into their proper position Tiny adjustments are often necessary when the saxophone reaches its destination.The adjustments are simple to perform, but if you don't know where to put your screwdriver your saxophone won't play at its best. I play test all Masterpiece instruments and adjust them for you so that they are ready to play when they reach you. I know a good saxophone when I see one. Since 1980, I have been a professional musician. I have taught hundreds of students i n thousands of lessons. I have written more than 60 books. Masterpiece instruments are the same instruments that I recommend to my students.
