Alto Antigua 4518 Saxophone

The Antigua range of Saxophones has proved very popular with the enthusiastic amateur and student – and going by this Alto horn, it’s easy to see why. With a fully ribbed annealed brass body and a detachable bell, for just under £500, this is a lot of horn for your money. And the high end specs don’t stop there. The clear laquered keys are power forged and include a high F sharp, while the low Bb spatula keys are of the tilting variety for that extra smooth action and ease of playing. Added to this, there are independent palm keys and double skin pads. The horn blows well, but in truth you will need to replace the generic 4C mouthpiece with a more suitable piece to get the most out of this instrument and to appreciate the rich, rounded tone that the Antigua can produce. And it all comes in a solid, lockable, pre-formed case with top and side handles.
