An excellent first saxophone

The Buffet 100 Series will provide years of excellent performance for the beginning saxophonist. 

Description

The importance of a superior instrument for beginning sax players cannot be underestimated, and the 100 Series provides consistent intonation (tuning) and easy response, a centered tone and range to high F#.

This entry level model shares many of the features of the more expensive 400 Series and will ensure the best possible start to your sax playing.

Should you start on tenor? A tenor is just a bigger alto with a lower tonal range so most adults can start on tenor as easily as a child can on alto.

Finish: Gold lacquer

Key Touches: Mother of Pearl

Case: Buffet hard case

Mouthpiece: Buffet plastic

Review

The combination of French design by one of Europe's leading woodwind manufacturers with Chinese production has produced a good and very affordable student instrument. It blows smoothly through the ranges with a good, if somewhat light, tone - but that's not always a bad thing when you first start! As with so many of these beginners saxes it blows so much better if with a relatively inexpensive mouthpiece upgrade to something like a Yamaha 4c. Phill (Sax.co.uk)
