this saxophone is basically an ordinary student saxophone. its old so it has the purple yamaha logo which is quite nice. the low bflat key is very large which is nice to have. the keys are very easy to push down and its a very very light saxophone. the overall tone doesnt sound the best but i mean....it works i guess. the dsharp and low c keys are very small and were hard to hit if your fingers werent already on them. it sounds nice in alttisimmo but not so good in the low register.
