You’ll love features like our tilting spatula, high F#, adjusting screws, and blue steel springs that are normally found only on step-up models.
With the advancing student in mind, we designed the keys of the Alcazar series saxophones to accommodate smaller hands while still being comfortable for players with larger hands.
The High F# key extends the saxophone’s range and makes high passages easier to play.
Our thumb hook is adjustable so you can set it to the angle that best fits your own hands.
The bell and bow can be removed from the body by a qualified repair technician in the event of serious damage. This reduces repair costs as it allows repairs to be done quicker, easier, and more effectively. *N/A on Straight Soprano
Our Italian Pisoni water-resistant leather pads have been specifically chosen for long life, excellent sealing, and the superior feel they add to the key action.
Our pads have riveted nickel-plated brass resonators that are specifically chosen for optimum performance and sound.
Steel needle springs allow for the most precise, even key tension. The bluing process makes the steel resistant to rust and corrosion, which extend the life of the springs.
Forged brass has much greater strength and uniformity than molded brass, so our keys resist bending and hold their adjustment exceptionally well over time.
Upper and lower stack adjustment screws allow for easier and more precise regulation and adjustment. Under each stack adjustment screw we use synthetic cork, which (unlike natural cork) resists compression over time, so the fine adjustments on your saxophone will last.
The “tilting spatula” rocking mechanism allows fast and fluid transitions between the low C-sharp and low B-flat keys. *N/A on Curved Soprano
Our Alcazar mouthpiece is specially designed and hand-finished to be easy to play and create an in-tune, beautiful tone.
