Review:

This new premium model within our Sakkusu range demonstrates quality throughout and represents true value for money. Even at its modest price-point it features many of the qualities that you see in professional-level brands: underslung octave mechanism, double key arms on lower keys, and red brass material giving added warmth and projection. The included Yamaha mouthpiece with this material gives a lovely sonority; I found the mouthpiece positioning on the cork needed to be 60% down in order to obtain the correct tuning point and demonstrate its excellent intonation. The mechanism is solid and the keywork feels fluid and very accessible under the fingers. I think this sax is going to be a classic for years to come! - Jim@sax.co.uk
