Eastman 52nd Street Alto Saxophone - Aged Brass
- Available to order
Sax legend Bob Mintzer's first choice of saxophone. A serious heavyweight addition to our pro sax range, the 52nd Street Soprano captures a classic vintage sound – full bodied and free blowing – and combines this with wonderful ergonomics.
The 52nd Street saxophone is a professional instrument and comes unlacquered for a truly vintage appearance. It is an exceptionally responsive horn in all registers from low to high, and produces a big, fat sound with precise intonation. A larger bell and rolled-style tone holes contribute to the sound qualities of this instrument that many compare to some of the great vintage horns of the past. Solid construction with comfortable hand position and extras such as adjustable palm keys.

"This alto has a lovely feel of depth in tone to me, so immediately appealing. There are a few other modern saxes that are going for this concept of vintage sound combined with modern ergonomics but I honestly think that Eastman are right up there amongst the best with this horn. There is a huge amount of spread in the sound, surely helped on by the big bell, which is hand hammered, the rolled tone holes and whatever secret formula they use for their brass sourcing!" - Jim (sax.co.uk)
