This saxophone offers a clever twist on the original body of the TJ Alto Saxophone resulting in an instrument perfect for students or those who struggle with weight and long reaches of traditional alto saxophones.
The Alphasax is in the key of Eb, with a full two-octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. The new and innovative mechanism enables the same finger positioning as a standard saxophone.
