Sax.co.uk Recommends

A great sax for players wanting character and individuality.

A fully professional instrument with a tone reminiscent of the old Conn and Buescher saxes of the 1940s.


Description

The most striking feature of this saxophone is its toneholes. The SX90R uses tonehole rings which are soldered on to the standard drawn toneholes. The tonehole rings give the pads a longer life, and the rings themselves are easier to replace if necessary, because they are a piece separate from the tonehole. The production of a darker, more immediate sound is an added benefit of the tonehole rings, which allow the musician to form his own individual voice.


A few other SX90R features that set it aside from it's competitors include:

A larger bell and bow section - up to 30% larger giving the sax it’s characteristic BIG sound.

Adjustable palm keys – many players are dissatisfied with the fixed position of palm keys and fit risers to compensate.

G# key lifter - so it never sticks – solving the most common saxophone problem.

Review

The SX90R is long established as one of the World's best saxes...and just a little different from it's main competitors. While others followed the French route, Keilwerth developed along the more vintage American lines of Conn & Buescher. The end result is a sax that feels a bit bigger in your hands - well, because it is! Don't worry, you soon get used to it and the benefits in sound are literally huge! To hear what a Keilwerth can do have a listen to Dave Liebman, James Moody, Nick Brignola, Ernie Watts, and Kirk Whalum. Phill (Sax.co.uk)
