Review

Qualities you’d expect from an entry level professional sax, but at an intermediate price. The Shakti has full sound with good projection that would suit many different styles of music. For me the sound is leaning towards the darker side of things compared to his other saxes, although it still has a bit of ping to it. The keywork is comfortable under the fingers, and the intonation is great across the range of the instrument. If you’re looking for your first proper sax or you’re a professional on a budget I’d definitely give this one a try! - Oren
