Considering the incredible price of this sax I’m extremely impressed with how well it performs in terms of its functionality. Quite often saxes around this price point have unstable tuning and a weak tone, whereas this model is the exact opposite. Position the Yamaha mouthpiece included within the set-up around 90% down the cork (a little further than normal) and all of the tuning pops out in exactly the right place! Beyond this the tone is very pleasant, making this sax highly playable. A definite recommendation from myself to complete beginners and a welcome addition to our student range of saxes. - Jim Cheek

Jim puts the Sakkusu through its paces and explains why he thinks it is the best affordable student saxophone on the market!
The best affordable saxophone for students
This sax offers exceptional value for money on so many levels. It’s true that you will find lower cost student instruments on the market but be warned – many of these will be enough to put you off playing the sax for life; and you may just assume it’s YOU and not the sax! Enter the Sakkusu in gold lacquer. Paired with the best student mouthpiece available, the Yamaha 4C, this instrument delivers to a high level in all the key areas - tone, response, intonation and ergonomics. In fact, when comparing to much higher-priced saxophones it’s often commented that the tone on the Sakkusu is superior! Here at SAX we stand by our conviction that this is the best student sax on the market.
