Reviews:

"A nice, smooth actioned 'beginners' line instrument, that I would highly recommend to the advance beginner too. I found the sound was very pure, slightly brighter than most of the sopranos of its level. The intonation was great for a soprano, usually people struggle with this, but it seemed like it is remarkably stable across the whole instrument from top to bottom. Really worth a try if you’re in the market for a new sop!" - Scott (Sax.co.uk)
