Eastman 52nd Street Tenor Saxophone - Aged Brass

Sax legend Bob Mintzer's first choice of tenor saxophone. A serious heavyweight addition to our pro sax range, the 52nd Street Tenor 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.

"Initially when I heard about these horns I saw that they were connected with Bob Mintzer and knew he had great things to say about them. However, it wasn’t until I met him out at the NAMM show, representing Eastman, that I realised first-hand just how much he actually loves his tenor! I then tried one for myself and couldn’t believe how full bodied and deep the sound was, as well as being effortless to play throughout the entire range. The horn also had feeling of solidarity and sturdiness under the fingers which just added to the joy of playing it! This sax has the hallmarks of a being a classic." - Jim (sax.co.uk)
