Saxophonist Chris Farr graduated from University of the Arts in 1995 and since then has been a highly sought after performer and educator. Chris is currently the head of the saxophone department at the University of the Arts. Chris is also a clinician and endorser of Eastman saxophones. Over the past 15 years he has performed, toured and recorded with the likes of Elvis Costello, Jill Scott, Sting, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, The Roots, Teddy Pendergrass, Grover Washington, Gerald Veasley & Maynard Ferguson. For the last several years, I have been playing the Andreas Eastman 52nd Street model tenor saxophone. 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.
What They Play
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.
