In my first visual contact with the System 76, I was impressed with the look, taste and finish in the details. I really blew it when i check the quality of the saxophone, an incredible sound, perfect pitch and especially a very distinctive sound projection. Rubens mariano de oliveira filho
I had played the same saxophone since I was 17, an old 1936 Selmer, which seems to often need tweaking and maintenance. So because of this I have searched for a long time for another horn that I felt confident enough in to play when the original was in the repair shop. I had looked at many options, vintage and new, but had never found anything that I liked. It was either a vintage horn with a beautiful sound and major intonation/control problems or a modern one with all the accuracy but a sound with no character. Then I tried the system 76, and I haven't been that instantly impressed with an instrument ever! Jeff King
