Reviews

"Ignoring the sterling silver options for a moment, this is the top model in the new SWO range and it really delivers on all fronts. The combination of the bronze material, the newly engineered bore and tone-holes and the metal pad reflectors all come together to give the most incredible results; it’s highly responsive at all dynamic levels, the tone can be sweet, focussed and introverted at lower air velocities, whilst open and expansive when pushed, and everything in-between. Very satisfying to play indeed. I’d find it hard to believe that any serious soprano player would dismiss this sax once tried!" - Jim Cheek (Sax.co.uk)
