The Alpha Saxophone is based around the original body tube of the award winning Trevor James Horn alto saxophone with completely re-designed mechanism and tone hole positioning. This ensures that the instrument looked and played like a normal full-sized alto sax.
The Alpha sax has a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. New and innovative mechanism has enabled us to maintain the finger positioning of a normal saxophone. This Alphasax saxophone is also 33% lighter than the traditional alto saxophone.
