An extremely solid, high-end student saxophone with a robust sound

The Conn-Selmer 'Avant' DAS180 is a saxophone with a little extra pedigree - Conn & Selmer have been two of the most respected brands for over 100 years! Now they have come together to produce this excellent student saxophone.

Description

One of our favourite brands here at Sax.co, the Conn-Selmer saxophones feature good design, excellent build quality and proven reliability across the range.

The inclusion of a genuine Rousseau ebonite (hard rubber) mouthpiece is a huge bonus. Most student saxes are supplied with the least expensive plastic mouthpiece that soon needs upgrading. Once you've progressed past the initial beginning stages, this mouthpiece will help take you and your playing onto a higher level.  For absolute beginners we recommend purchasing an additional Yamaha plastic mouthpiece to start on.

Review

There is a nice robust feel to the 180, without the heavy 'chunkiness' that you find with some of the less expensive saxes. It has a comfortable fluid keying action and blows freely with good tuning - pretty much everything you'd want in your first sax. Much of this is down to the excellent Rousseau mouthpiece that's included - something that makes life easier for beginners for a change. Even the case is a cut above the usual 'beginners' standard. Conn-Selmer have set out to produce more than just a good student saxophone - this is a whole student sax package worthy of the famous brand. Phill (Sax.co.uk)
