It is a superior instrument. It is effortless to play, while still possessing a rich sound and outstanding intonation. Thank you to the folks at Eastman for producing such a fine instrument.

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 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.
